The weather forecast for today was right on and was it ever beautiful.  There was not a cloud in the sky, it was warm, but not hot, no humidity, and there was a gentle breeze.  A person could not ask for a more beautiful day.

Today's block was easy peasy.  I think it took me a total of 20 minutes to cut and piece it which means a small quilt could easily be made in a just a few hours.  I almost made two of them just to see what they would look like when you put them together, but then I decided not to overdo it.  The Minnesota State Shop Hop started this weekend and we took a drive to a shop that I love that is a little farther away.  I usually try to make it to the ones in my section, but I don't always get to all of them.  I decided this year I might just try to make it to the ones I rarely get to or the ones that are my favorites.  I'll let you know how far I actually get in the next three weeks.

Stash Report....

Used this week:  0
Used year to date:  10 yards
Added to this week:  2.5 yards
Added to year to date: 107.50 yards
Net used for 2012:  -97.00  

On the stash report, I purchased 2-1/2 yards today of a fabric I have been looking for for a very long time.  It is an orange Robert Kaufman Mixmasters Fizz.  If you know of a shop anywhere that carries that line of fabric, I would love to know.  I have quite a few of them to find and it has been near to impossible.  I'm back to work tomorrow after a lengthy vacation.  I'm rested, I didn't finish anything I had planned to, and I was just pretty lazy.  I did realize that sometimes rest is a good thing.  Our bodies will always let us know when it has been too much, and mine finally did.  Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen

I'm enjoying this series (playing catch-up in my Google reader), but I have a question: from your pictures, it doesn't look like there is any extra for seams - like the points would be cut off if you put it in a quilt. Is that the case, or are you trimming them down (in real life or in the photo) for show?
