Stash report

I managed to use a bit up this week; 3 yards for a new set of headers for the longarm and 1/2 yard to make a monitor cover...what you don't have one of those? To remind our kids that the computer is not to be used until chores are done I made a cover and with buttonholes underneath and a lock threaded through we hope to get them to obey the rule!

donated, same: 71 yards
used, changed: 97.75 yards
purchased, same: 92 yards

Judy has more stashbusters listed here!

I've made some design/quilting choices on my triangle madness; 7 decisions done;

6-8 more to make. I have questions like; should I quilt in the 1 inch triangles? Should I pick out that which I'm no longer crazy about? and do something else in that border? What to do in the Puss in the Corner? the 9-patch? the 4-patch? the inner outside border? And finally the outermost border?
Slowly but surely decisions are made then I can go ahead with the quilting! Luckily I have lots of time to just think about what to do since children, even teenagers, need some attention. Not to mention housework and cooking and exercising....(Friday I increased my pool workout by 1/3 and I am SO SORE!)

I am like you...I just start and see how it goes and eventually the ideas start to pop up and you start to make progress. If you *really* dislike some of the previously quilted designs, then probably you should take them out. But I rarely do that...I would rather keep on going and finish it up.
