The fashion fabric has not been counted in my stash reports so I won't count it as "fabric used," but I am happy to say that I emptied a 66-gallon plastic tub. One day later: the tub is still empty.
I pieced Nine by Nine patch earlier this year. It came to the top of the pile of flimsies so I quilted it. The white-background poppy print that I used for the back complemented the white of the quilt. (It wouldn't have worked for last week's Poppy Stars which doesn't have any white.)
In retrospect I should have continued the insert band across the back. Too late now!
Back and binding used 3 yards.
The flimsy. A few weeks ago I began piecing batik crumbs with no specific plan. I used my largest square ruler -- 15" -- to trim those I'd make. More blocks followed.
Here's the result. I chose the very bright batik so the sashes and borders would blend with the extremely busy blocks.
Of course I couldn't count yardage using the size of the pieces. Instead I weighed it -- 1 lb., 1 oz. That's 4-1/8 yards.
And, yes, there are still a lot of batik bits and pieces awaiting a future project.

P.S. Rosebuds in late October. Foolhardy or optimistic? (Actually, they indicate that the gardener is not diligent in keeping the bush pruned.)
