I've skipped the last couple of Stash Reports, but only because I had absolutely nothing to report. I didn't buy any fabric or do much sewing. However, this week saw a nice package from the Fat Quarter Shop come in. I had a gift certificate from my quilt bee (love you ladies!) and some Christmas money from my parents (love you too!) that I used to buy some fabric I'd been wanting. And get this, it was all on sale!
First, I bought 12 yards of this Jovial fabric to use as the backing for 2 quilts. I already had all the fabric I needed for the quilts except for the backing. I sure hope I can actually get these made in time for next Christmas, because I obviously missed the boat on this one...

As for what I used, it's not much. I've been working on my Winter Wonderland blocks, but won't count the fabric until the top is done. Other than that, I made a few quilt blocks to donate which maybe used a quarter yard...

In case you didn't know, the Fat Quarter Shop is starting their 12 Days of Christmas sale on Monday. I have some Christmas money that I've set aside especially for this sale. There are several fabric lines I have my eye on (American Banner Rose, Panier de Fleurs, Rounneries Deux) and I'm hoping some of them go on sale!

Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your Christian hope, always be ready to explain it.
