I finally managed to finish the quilting on "Pushin' Up Spring", even though I have been bothered by some kind of "bug".  I've been fighting a fever and stomach issues all week, and didn't even go to my sewing room for the past two days.  I'm hoping I'm on the upward swing now.

Fabric used this week  21.75 yards
Used year to date  172.375 yards
Added this week 0 yards
Added year to date  52.375 yards
 Net used 2011  90 yards
 Each block has curved background stitching, but curving in various directions.
The stars, formed by the block corners received a simple curved quilting design.
The star border has a hearts and feathers design, and the rest has some SITD with monofilament thread.  The large outer print border has a large stipple quilting to finish it off.
This is the overall quilt, just laid on my living room floor.  I'll try to get a better picture in the next day or two.
Check out everyone' stash reports at Judy's blog.
