Stash Report - Week 29 and Productivity

I was a little busy beaver this past week. I was able to finish the tops for 3 Honor Flight quilts and make another quilt top using a charm pack that I recently picked up. Of course I added some fabric, but more went out than came in. YEAH!!

Here are two of the Honor Flight quilts that I haven't posted yet. The Stars and Squares quilt was on my design wall Monday and by Wednesday I hadn't touched it. I decided right then and there that it was NOT going to be on the wall again this coming Monday, so I sat down and finished it that night. The Friendship Stars top was done as a leader/ender project so I kind of feel like it's a bonus quilt. I know it looks like it's not done, but it is. I had to add the small red border to the top and bottom (not the sides) because of the size requirements. I'll be binding the whole thing is the same red, so I don't think it will look bad.
So, while I was at a local shop Tuesday, I saw this charm pack and thought it was really cute.
I carried this pack around with me for a while and decided that if I was going to get it, I had to get some coordinating fabrics as well. I just knew that I really didn't have anything at home that would look good. Well, here's the result of that thinking.
After I finished the Stars and Squares quilt, I started on a project using these fabrics. This is what I was piecing at the same time as the Friendship Stars.
It's hard to believe that quilt was made using the same pattern as the second quilt in this post.

Ok, enough rambling. Here's the report.
