Design Wall & Stash Report

I did get a little something done last week and over the weekend. It really wasn't feeling like it until I took pictures.

So on my design wall:

Charm squares - Girlie Girl from Moda - will be transformed into a Twister Baby Quilt

New Top
Embroidered blocks and Kaffe Fassett fabric. 
I love how the top turned out.  I can't wait to get it on the frame and quilt it.  When finished, I think it's going to hang in our master bathroom.  Definitely something bright and pretty too look at in the morning.

In an effort to get rid of some fabric from my stash, I made a bunch of bags that I found on the Green Bag Lady site.  I've given some of the bags to friends and they just love them, so I'm going to just keep making them.  The pattern for the grocery bag is so easy that I think I've gotten it down to about 10 minutes a bag.  Not too bad.  I think that I want to go back and put some embroidery on the plan bags.  Maybe a recycle symbol or the fun grocery list I previously showed.

Stash Report

I bought 6 yards of fabric this week, so when added to what I bought last week brings me up to 10 yards for the year.

Used - Awesome week since I made bags.  2 yards (embroidered top), 6 1/2 yards for bags - so 8 1/2 yards total.

Net - 1 1/2 yards on the stash side
