The plan was for Drama Teen and I to join My Guy on Saturday as she has volleyball practice and I needed to finish up a rush project at work. That plan pretty much disintegrated when I picked DT up from volleyball practice on Friday. DT texted that I needed to come in to talk to coach. It wasn't the coach I had to talk to, it was the high school trainer. DT took a bad fall during practice and over-extended her knee. She was on crutches and hurting pretty badly. So after an afternoon spent at the doctor's office, she has an MRI scheduled for this Thursday. We won't know how bad the damage is to her knee until the doctor sees the results from that. She's supposed to stay off her feet and regularly ice the knee until then. The rush project? Well that was finally finished at about 8:30 PM on Friday.
Here's the quilting updates that should have been written this week:
My something old this month is the same as it's been for several months, to finish up Jigsaw. This month the blocks got finished, the rows sewn together and the borders were started.

Jigsaw may actually make it to a finished flimsy in August. I've just started on the the last round of borders. For my something new, I learned how to work with fussy cuts in EQ. I'm still working to come up with a quilt that uses a butterfly panel I bought a couple of months ago. Here's the latest effort.

This layout reminds me of stained glass. The pattern is modified from a quilt in the July issue of McCall's Quilting magazine, Bird Watching by Wendy Sheppard. This may well end up being my something new for this month. I will probably play some with block placement and fabric colors, but I think this quilt needs to be made.
July wasn't a good month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, so I've been playing catch up with the red blocks. All the blocks for the Scrap Challenge Sampler are in progress, but only 4 are finished.

The scrappy butterfly block is also done.
Block is available in EQ 7 Block Library
This month's color is light green. Since I don't have a lot of greens, I used pretty much all my green scraps I had when we were working with dark green. So I'm not sure what I'm going to do for this month.
Finally, today is stash report day. I actually have some stash going out with nothing coming in.
Used last week: 1.36 yards
Added last week: 0 yards
Used in 2014: 11.99 yards
Added in 2014: 302.3 yards
Net stashed in 2014: 290.31 yards
So for the first time in a long while the net stashed actually went down! I definitely need a few more weeks of that.
That catches me up on posts for the week and the month. I'm linking up with:
