Stash and design wall report

My design wall has 10 of the 12 fairy blocks I am making. These blocks have been "on the go" for quite a while and I would like to get them finished, so I am trying to motivate myself.

Designed by Margaret Upston I have enjoyed making these Candlewick designs. I managed to buy on Ebay a range of Perle threads in light colours, so each fairy is a different colour.

Another bargain buy I could not resist, 3meters of backing fabric to add to my stash !
Plus I have not used any fabric from my stash. Too many other projects started that I want to finish!!
Total used to date 22 1/2 yds, purchased 6 yds.
March is nearly over and I have been very lax in keeping my stash report up to date, since I last wrote I have bought 6 yds and used 9 1/2 yds
Total used to date 32 yds bought 12 yds. and the fairies are still on the design wall!

I love your fairies. Can't wait to see your finished quilt. Wouldn't it be wonderful if they were quilt fairies and finished it while you were sleeping?

Very pretty fairies! It's a good motivator to keep the blocks where you can see them!

Another up & down week

I cannot believe the bad luck we are having at the moment, it seems to go on and on... First the good news: I attended a sewing day at Bed...
