Sunday progress report

I finally made a bit of progress this week - No fabric purchased (in weeks and weeks actually) and I finished 20 HeartStrings RWB blocks and pieced a backing from stash for the green double 4 patch. Once I finish the binding on this one - I'll officially add it to my Stash used total - the top will also count since it was pieced completely from stash last year.

Judy had in interesting post today about stash building vs stash busting which was very timely since I do plan to add some to my stash tomorrow with my birthday visit to a new (to me) quilt shop. I only have one thing to add and it's on the pro side for stashBUSTING....having moved mine twice in the last year or so - less is definitely better if you plan on moving around a lot.
