How did this happen?! I added 12 1/2 yards of fabric to my stash this week! I'm starting a new round robin project with friends and bought a few half-yard cuts to throw in with my center (shown above), then a local store had a 35% off sale and I knew they had a red that I've been wanting for quite a while, then, then, then…. you know exactly how this goes! I think I'm going to impose a bit of a moratorium on fabric buying until I get to Houston for the quilt market and show. I've never been to the Houston Quilt Festival before, so I'm pretty excited!
There has been a bit of sewing going on this week, mostly testing a block and binding three quilts. My husband is attending a wood carving camp next month and I'm going along with my sewing machine. I've got a great project all ready to go and it will use up over 20 yards for the front and back. Getting that complete will really help my numbers. My goal this year was to sew 200 yards and have a net number of at least 100 yards. I'd better get a wiggle on it!

Sewn year-to-date: 146.5 yards

Today I'm linking up with Judy over at www.patchworktimes.com. Check out her blog to see how everyone else did this week. P.S.: My block is based on a Bonnie Sullivan block in her book Happy Trails (2005).
