Not much exciting got done. I got the borders on the 9-Patch A Day quilt. It is now sitting in the pile to be quilted. I started the second 9-Patch A Day quilt, 7 blocks done! I also finished cutting my fabric for the I Spy A Swap. I will be mailing those this week.

I am hoping to finish a few things this next week but they wont be using up yardage. I am hoping to bust at least a yard. Wish me luck!

Fabric Busted this week: 2.125 yards
Fabric Busted this year: 101.571 yards

Total Busted: 55.780 yards

So my 4 yards of Alexander Henry's Flames showed up this week. I have been meaning to buy this fabric, I need it for my Rings Of Fire quilt. I bought extra since it is older and I wanted to make sure I had enough for when I get around to finish the quilt.

This week I am aiming for a 5 yard bust. I need to cut my novelties for the I Spy A Swap, which will use up 2.5 yards and I need to get the last 2 borders on my 9-Patch A Day quilt, I am thinking that will be about 2 yards too.

Check back next week to see if I make it!

Round 2 of 9-Patch A Day Quilt Along

I had so much fun doing this the first time around! I am at the stage of adding borders to my quilt. I am already in love with it and my quilt still needs a back and quilting!

Amanada Jean over at Crazy Quilt Mom is starting a 2nd round of the 9-Patch A Day Quilt Along. If you missed the first round join the second round, you'll be happy you did! This is a great way to use of your scraps! The bonus is it is one simple block a day to make or do a bunch at one time.

If you use scraps by making the 70 9-Patches you use about 3 1/2 yards of fabric! So far with my sashing ONLY I have used 1 yard of my Kona Snow. I still have the borders to do so my used yardage will go up!

I haven't decided if I am going to make another one or just piece my backing this time around.

I am still happy with my numbers. I was able to finish an UFO from 6 years ago this past week. Sorry camera is still broke so no pictures. I really feel like I am making some progress.

I did place an order online yesterday so I will have to count that next week. If you don't know the online site Quiltin' Tia is closing and having a great sale. I was able to get the flame fabric I have been needing for only $4 a yard and shipping was $5. I need it for my Rings Of Fire quilt, Bella Bella. Most of the fabric is 50% off!

The numbers are slowly rising. At least they are going up! I was able to cut part of the sashing for my 9-Patch quilt along, I have even sewn one row together. I have also started the binding on my $5 quilt that is going to my niece Allison. I should have the binding done today. Which means knocking another UFO off the list! Talk about killing two birds with one stone.

Today I am giving up my Sewing Studio. I don't know how much sewing I will get done in the next few days. I am hoping to quilt the border on my Tessellations quilt and get the binding on that this week. I am also hoping to get all the vertical sashings sewn on the 9-Patch quilt. I am aiming for another yard busted this week.
