Use My Stash Year : week 6

I'm chugging away at the Ticker Tape Parade - so that backing counted as 4 yards used. Hurray! And thanks for all the nice comments, they help keep me going on the never ending blocks.

Remember this clipping? (And I made this cool magnetic board for my sewing area! Thanks for the tutorial, Karen! Of course had to add on some fabric covered button magnets.)

I pulled some fabrics this week to make a mini....but thought the reds I wanted were lacking. So off to the local quilt shop I went.

I came home with these three. Couldn't pass up those aqua lady bugs!

Busted: 4
Purchased: 1.5
Net YTD: (18.862)

Hi Angela,
Your magnet board is great and I love your covered buttons...too cute. A blogger friend sent me some and they are on my board right now. Love the fabric you just purchased too. I love the aquas and reds. My problem is I love all types of fabrics...civil war, shabby roses, brights, prims, etc. I bought a few yards this week in the half price section!! They were Moda too. Didn't need them, but I don't think any of us "need" fabric.
Take care,

I love your fabric selection and am looking forward to seeing the progress on your mini! You are doing a fantastic job of using up your stash!!!!

Cute ladybugs. Can't wait to see how this mini turns out!

Cute fabric magnets. And I love the fabrics you have pulled, especially those very hard to find gnomes!! The ladybugs are must, but I am a ladybug fan :)

Love the magnet board idea! I guess that I am going to pester my hubby into making one for me. He won't let me TOUCH his tools! (It's OK because I won't let him touch my tools!)

You are doing well on your fabric diet...better than me for sure!

I love the ladybugs and I'm excited to see you put that ad into fabric!

You are so creative! I love the aqua ladybugs. I have not had a chance to put my read and aqua quilt together yet.
