I was busy taking photos of quilts while I was down in Maryland. Here are a few that I can share with you now.The quilt on the left is owned by my buddy, Sharon. It was a round robin done by members of Faithful Circle Quilters. I know Sharon did the center square with the white background. A different member did each section according to the rules. The quilts were kept in plain bags so no one knew whose quilt they were working on. I particularly like the final border with the interesting corners. I checked them out carefully. I believe they were machine appliqued on. The amazing thing about this is the colors are some of Sharon's favorites. I've seen round robin quilts change drastically from the beginning squares. This one has pride of place in Sharon's house.

No, don't panic, I did NOT run a triathlon. But some one close to me did so we all trooped down to the Potomac River to cheer Kevin on.
Happy Quilting All!

Here's my report for fabric usage from August.
Fabric used: 13.5 yards
Fabric purchased: 6.625 yards
Net fabric USED from stash: 6.875 yards
Year to date fabric used: 63.375 yards
Year to date fabric purchased: 81.375 yards
Net Year to date USED from stash :(18) yards
Wahoo! Snoopy Dancing going on around here! Finally, for the first time this year I have used more fabric then I brought in. Will this be a trend for the rest of the year? Can I use more fabric this year than I buy? I am going to try to continue this so I have a use-it-up trend going. I guess one month can't be a trend.
I'm off to make some small dents in my stash. A block here, a block there. And, yes folks, I do count EVERY block!
