I'm moving closer to my goal of breaking even for the year. Mostly I've bought fabric only for specific needs, but the goodies from the free table at guild added up this month.

Here are my additions. The first two photos are the guild freebies and a LQS FQ freebie. The second two photos are borders & sashing for current WIPS.

Goals Update:

August Recap:
1. Piece Flying Geese blocks into completed top. DONE
2. Piece basketball donation quilt.  DONE
3. Layer, baste, quilt, & bind one quilt (one of the above, or last year's bee project).  DONE, Basketball donation quilt.
4. Decide on layout for QF blocks and organize as needed for piecing in September. May need add'l fabric. DONE. Purchased add'l fabric for borders & sashing. Cut sashing for assembly in Sept.
5. Keep up with bee blocks & resolve the problem from May. DONE and problem resolved.

So what's on your plate for next month? I'm linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times; check out the other stash reports over there.


  1. I am so impressed with the amount of fabric you use up in a year. I still feel a bit uneasy about keeping a tally of my own stash, but so inspired to see what you accomplish with yours!

  2. Your fabrics are very pretty! Great job on stashbusting numbers for the month

  3. So organised! I could do with some goal setting myself, I'm sure it helps with productivity... You've achieved such a lot over August, very impressive :)
