Hampton's Quilt and Stash Report Week 10

I'm happy to say that Hampton's little Fire Truck quilt is done and the back is all together...the backing is that black piece with the old fire trucks on it. I've had these 12 fat quarters and 4 yards for backing since the kids lived in Chicago...Hampton loved the fire station that was right down the street from their condo in downtown Chicago...so now in Birmingham he doesn't have a fire station close to him but he can have his own fire trucks right in his house.The pattern is a Terry Atkinson...it's the cover quilt from her book Happy Hour...very, very quick and easy...really showcases those big prints.
So here's my report for this week...much better than last week...

Fabric Added this Week: 0 yards
Fabric Added Year to Date: 10.75 yards

Fabric Used this Week: 11 yards
Fabric Used Year to Date: 60.25yards

Total Busted: 49.5 yards

OK...that's it for me today! I'm heading to bed early...this time change has me all out of whack!

You know, I liked this fabric when it was out. I almost bought some, but opted for monkeys instead. I think this quilt is perfect for the prints. I bet he will adore it.
