Fabric Report-Week 27 & Show & Tell

Is it July already?  OMG!  Where did the month of June go so fast.  It's been quite a while since I've blogged and I need to catch up on what's been happening in my sewing room.

First off, I attended a retreat in June and finished some quilts and tops.  First was the modern Square in a Square that I started last year. It is now quilted and bound, Yes, 1 UFO off the list.

And the back 

Then I worked on my Stars and Stripes QOV and finished the top.,  It just needs a backing and a presentation pillowcase. 

Another old UFO that has been sitting in my unfinished pile for several years finally got a little TLC. These blocks were made and given to me by my friend, Joan who didn't want them.  This is Joan's Stars. Really original, right? lol  They are made with stretchy homespun and were not a consistent size.  I bought fabrics for sashing and borders to finish it. The colors do not show up well on the computer, but the new fabric really enhances the look of the stars.  Two of the blocks were not made with homespuns, so they stand out a bit more. I'm debating if I should do some creative camouflage on one in particular.  Otherwise, I'm pretty happy with the results.

The "Snow Friends" got it's final borders to complete the size I want, but there are still some hand embellishments that need to happen before it's ready to be quilted.

Here are my current usage numbers up-to-date.
