Design Wall & Stash report the end of August


A few more blocks for my Quilts for Hero's [ Judy's design] , hope to get this top completed this week. I have been messing with my treadle sewing machine having now bought a new belt for it.
Do you like my ribbon display... I have hung them from the side of my design wall with a bell at the bottom... ribbon disappears in this house at an alarming rate, I think she is called a granddaughter!
August has seen me using 19 yds of fabric from my stash, which is quite good for me. Total bought this year 103 yds used 94 yds... maybe September will see me back on the + side.

Good to see you started the hero quilt. Great idea about the ribbon. I keep saying I'm going to do something with my collection other than toss them in a drawer. They look so pretty when organized properly.

I hope you catch the ribbon thief-and give her a big hug!

One big project will have you back to ZERO! I will be sharing your ribbon idea with my Mom. She's got rolls of it stored on tote pans. Your idea appears to require less space.
