Net used 2013  22.75 yards
My numbers are heading in the wrong direction......but only temporarily!  My favourite local quilt shop, Quilts on Plum Lane in Dade City Florida had their 30% off sale today, so I had to have a look, just in case some fabric needed to come and live with me!
Before I headed out, I looked at a quilt pattern in a recent "Australian Homespun" magazine - another hexie quilt, so I chose fabric for one of the "backgrounds", knowing that I'll have the other two shades of "backgrounds" in my stash up north.  I also picked up some fat quarters so I can begin preparing the 1/2 inch hexagons!  (I know, I must be crazy).  
I picked up a yard of a rich turquoise batik - DH pointed it out to me, so its all his fault.  I also found a fabric that I think will make a wonderful "stack n whack", although DH asked what I was thinking when I chose it!
I took my friend along, and she picked up some cute fabrics as well.  Met another member of my quilt group, who was buying brights and starting her black and white collection so she could make a quilt like mine!  
Now I really have to get my sewing room tidied up, so I can start quilting one of the 4 quilts that are basted and ready.  That will also help take my numbers in the right direction!!!!
