Sunday Stash Report - July 10th 2011

Fabric used this week:  0 yards
Fabric used YTD:  53 3/4 yards
Net used for 2011:  7 1/4 yards

I miss my sewing room! It's been either busy or TOO HOT since last week to be in there (no AC and fans are not enough). I  now understand the Christmas in July fad, it makes sense to fantasize about the cool (some places cold) weather in December. 
On Sunday, I quilted a few rows on the Jelly roll race quilt with leaves.  They look somewhat decent on the front
Bu the back shows the true nature of my FMQ skills
After my wonky swirls from the last quilt, this is my second attempt at a discernible pattern.  I'm thinking I tried so hard to not cross or connect lines while meandering on my previous quilts that now I'm struggling to do the opposite.  Good thing there is plenty of rows on this quilt, that should give me enough practice.

I hope to get a few more rows quilted today if not all and then plan on pulling some fabric for a new project, a Christmas in July project???  Very possible!   I've never made a holiday themed quilt, this is a as good time as any to correct that.  Better finish my coffee and get started, I have snowflakes, Santa, reindeer, snow capped ginger houses and other winter-y characters to dig out!
