I admire how productive you ladies are, and how beautiful your work is. And then you give it away. You are special.

Just wanted to check in with everyone and see all the wonderful uses of stash and talent!

Also to say that the fabric I ordered from Jordan Fabrics came very nicely and timely and I love it and do intend to use it on the round robin -- if I can with what has gone before. And if I can't well it's on the "I want to do something with this soon" list. It took about a week to get to us, which is shorter than I figured. On our trip that starts in about a week we are going through Grants Pass where they are located but it is still closed to the public due to Covid. I still claim a birthday exemption that is unlikely to get used, but there should I need it.

Such beautiful and creative work from all, today I'm finally getting around to making my husband a special mask or two to wear on Bowling night. Leagues will be opened soon, but not to the general public like me.

Grr. Hurrying doesn't work with quilting. My quilt has two very different colored blocks made of nine patches and HSTs so I felt comfortable working with one of each at a time so I could chain sew. Yup, sewed a red/black strip of three blocks to a strip of red/white blocks. Seam ripper time. Thank goodness it's only 18 1/2". I will finish these blocks today and start the sashing!!!!!

I need y'all to remind me why I'm here. There is a jelly roll calling my name. I don't need it, I wouldn't have time to use it, but I WANT it!

Irish, we all have that fabric that calls to us with a siren's song. Odyssus put wax in his crews' ears. Will that help you?

Thank you for the compliments. Gudrun Erla does have inspiring designs that look hard but she makes them easy.

Irish2: 🤞for not adding it to your stash, 🥰

Forgive me sisters and brothers. I have fallen...and fallen HARD.
Went to Joanns for backing from the flannel sale. I had some but not enough. Ended up bringing home enough for 2 other backing. (But it was a sale!)
Then, my current project needed material for 1.more border. I had purchased something at a LQS and when comparing the leftover scraps...realized it was exactly right. So I go to the LQS. Where they ran out of said perfect fabric! But instead 2 items from the sale section said "Please, we would like to come home with you." And as previously mentioned- I'm a sucker for a sale.
So $60 spent - 13.5 yaards of flannel( 3.5 will get used in backing) and 3 of quilt cotton acquired. AND STILL NO BORDER so I have to go out again.

Rff1010.....I donít think the extra flannel is a fail as backing is a staple. Well, unless you have another 100 yards of flannel backing in your stash!

as for the quilting cotton......sometimes you need a fix and 3yd is barely a stumble if it tides you over for a while!

Irishrose2, you don't have to resist that jellyroll forever, just resist it for a week. And then resist it for another week. Something else might supplant it in your affections if you wait long enough, and then you can resist that for a week, LOL.

I don't have to resist it too long. Several sites are down to just one or two. If i wait, it will be sold out. My big blocks are done - one has a bad point, but I decided enough is enough. It will look hand done this way. On to sashing. I will get this done before my grandson moves to Japan.
