Out 5.25 yards: My husband put up a board so I could photograph quilts better and I decided to put up flannel and use the same space as a design board. Last night I looked up flannel and figured it would cost about $24 to get the 5 yards I needed, so this morning I grabbed my 40% off coupon and headed out the door; literally with my keys in my hand I saw a picture in my mind of folded flannel on a shelf and decided to go upstairs, again, and check. There it was; my design board, folded on my shelf with other flannels. Five and 1/4 yards. $24 just went back in my pocket. I figured it was left from the diapers I made 14 years ago (hey, they were cool, fastened with Velcro and faced with pretty prints.) I tore it in half, stitched it together and hemmed it. Finished.
Here it is with my stripped quilt; it looks like I need a few more blocks. When the a/c comes on the blocks fly to the floor. :(
In 0 yards: I went shopping to 3 new, for me, quilt shops and still didn't buy anything. I have a list...and they didn't have ANY of the things I needed. I need a 30's fabric in rose or brown... do they make such a thing?
Totals for the year

Do you think I can get it up to 100 yards next week? Come back next week if you really want to know.
