The RWB quilt is 41" square. I know, a weird measurement but it is what it is and a good baby size. This pattern would be easy to expand to make it larger with minimal additional work.

Bought fabric, new even! Two (1) yard coordinating cuts for an upcoming round of the Round Robin. Ended up ordering from Jordan Fabrics which is most likely to still be closed when I'm going by in a couple of weeks. I'm keeping my birthday exemption and might just use it at Jordan's if they are open by then.

I only bought what I felt I needed after search my heart and stash no extras found their way into the package. But many fabrics have joined the lusted in my heart club -- that's ok, that's better than in my boxes.

As long as you bought what you needed for the project in front of you here and now (seriously - 2 yards is a blip) and only added to the "lusted in your heart."

I finished my Marine quilt, but didn't use as much stash as I would have like. I sent all my patriotic fabrics to someone on the QB who does QOV, so I had to purchase the RWB stars, dots and backing. Pattern was Bricks and Stones by Bonnie Hunter. I made it a carry bag, but didn't get a picture. Size is 72x90. Twin size when he gets an assignment or beach blanket size. It's his quilt.

Looks great, Irishrose2! Will have to think of this pattern when I work on my patriotic scraps. Thanks for sharing.

Another finish for the week. Someone on another thread was asking about snowball blocks and I got inspired. I had a charm pack of reproduction prints in my cupboard and by adding some other reproductions prints and odds and ends of white on white corners, I finished another donation quilt. I found enough 1930's print for the back and binding and of course, pieced the batting. I can actually tell that my pile of batting pieces is diminishing. Yippee!

Irishrose2: Congratulations on a great finish. I started a kit for this pattern earlier today. I am using solid black and a variety of neutrals for the 4 patches. My neutrals were in the 2” drawer and were extras from a former BH quilt.

WMUTeach: Another great finish. Send your sewing mojo my way please. I have been working in my sewing room but just haven’t been sewing much.

WMUTeach, such a cheery, pretty quilt! It's inspiring to hear about your stash reduction!
