Finishes & Stash Report 2014-Week 3

I am very pleased with how this quilt turned out!  I could not find a solid that would work for the binding so I used a black & Gray Swirl print fabric instead.  I love the rainbowy backing fabric I've had in my stash for about 16 years!  This finished wall hanging measures 11 3/4" X 11 3/4" and I am so excited to keep this beautiful piece!

I did purchase some fabric this week for several projects I have in the works including clothing for my daughter and the next blog hop item!  The zigzag fabric I got for $3/yard so I was pretty excited with that find!  Overall, I don't think I did too bad this week.  The fabric shown on the right is for the LQS' BOM, but I thought I would count it now just in case I forget to once the quilt is completed.  My Stash altogether looks exactly like last week with some minor changes so I did not include a picture of the cubes.
