DWM: halfway through the year

I finished the D4P wallhanging last evening. The quilting is straight lines with occasional bubbles (circles) -- very easy!  This measures 30 x 20 and used 1-1/4 yards of fabric.  
I also quilted Squares in Stars thus knocking another flimsy off the UFO list.
Here is how I keep track of fabric used and fabric bought.  I have a stack of these card-stock "pages" dating back to 1998, though the  annual tally  is kept on a spreadsheet.

June, 2012, was a month of acquisition rather than use!  I want to reverse that before I slide down the slippery slope again.

See what other quiltmakers have on their design walls today at Judy's Patchwork Times.

  4. I want to make that version of the disappearing 9 patch. I've done a couple of the other way but this calls my name too. Hum, I am following your great example of acquiring fabric.... but need to get back to the using of fabric too. Do you have finishes lurking close by?

  9. Beautiful colors! And I'm impressed with your record keeping. I'm ashamed to say I know things are out of balance when my stash drawers get hard to close.
