The weather has definitely got a touch of fall in it this weekend, and I love it. The temps have dropped, and even better, our humidity is way down, making it much more bearable outside. It makes me eager to get out for our morning walk.
There has been considerable movement in the fabric stash this week, both incoming and outgoing. After two years on the market, my favorite quilt local shop's building (Intown Quilter's in Decatur, GA) has been sold. They hope to find a new place to open the store, but may end up going to just online. At any rate, they have to be out of the current space by Halloween. They are having a sale to reduce the inventory before the move, and I bought some fabric to help them out. I got 9 pieces ranging from 1/2 to 1-1/2 yards, plus one charm pack.
Fortunately, there was even more fabric going out of the stash than in for the week. I gave away 11.25 yards that I was never going to use, and I also used 4.5 yards for the sashing, setting, borders, back and binding of my Dresden Stars quilt. It's finished, but I haven't had a chance to get any photos of it yet. Coming soon!

Kate's 15 Minutes to Stitch challenge at Life in Pieces has us tracking how many days each week we get in at least 15 minutes of quilting time. My main focus for the week was on finishing the Dresden Stars quilt, but I've also started playing with some new project ideas for next year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I had no trouble getting my 15 minutes every day.
15 Minute Challenge:

I need to spend some serious time back at the cleaning and organizing of the sewing room next week. The cutting table is quite buried by piles of fabric and who knows what else!
Happy quilting and stay safe everyone!
