Update on QOV & Stash Report

My stash has not changed much from last week.  I used some more scraps from the string bin, but they don't count, and I made a couple exchange blocks for friends, but the fabric used there was not enough to count either. So basically my numbers remain the same as last week -- Nothing in or out.
YTD Added - 34.7 yds     YTD  USED -  5.5 yds
I'm still in the red, but there is always next week. I'm going on a retreat next week and just maybe I'll get a top all put together so I'll have some fabric I can count.

Some good QOV news!! Look what has come in this week since we announced our drive for 100 quilts for our Missouri troops coming back from Afghanistan in May or June.   First off a totally finished (yay!!) QOV from Cindy.

and a quilt top with backing and binding also from Cindy.  In her goody bag were extra fabrics to make more blocks, bindings or backings and some some beautiful pieced blocks ready to be put together for a top or two.  Cindy you are just the best.!  Thanks so much for all these beautiful gifts of fabric and for caring.

I  also received  a quilt top with backing and binding from Judy H at my guild meeting.  Thank you Judy.  This top is beautiful and some lucky man or woman will treasure the sentiment behind it.
from Judy H.
Thank you all so much for your generous donations.  We will have these tops quilted, labeled and coordinated pillowcases made to hold them for presenting to our returning troops.   I have received several other commitments from friends and bloggers who are willing to help in this effort too.  I will try to keep you posted on our total numbers as they become available to me.
