I did manage to use up some fabric the beginning of the week on the patriotic tumbler quilt but bought just as much fabric. I bought a couple of deeply discounted fabrics. On a yard plus of Christmas fabrics and the rest patriotic. I don't think it is enough to make the whole backing for the tumbler quilt but can toss in some other patriotics and make it a pieced back.

I have been under the weather a big majority of the week so really have not go much sewing done.
The #6 was selected in Judy's UFO challenge on New Years so I dug out UFO #6 yesterday.
This was from a row robin that I was involved in with a several internet buddies several years ago.
So the challenge is to have this totally done by the end of the month. The lady bug blocks had buttons sewn on them so I sat last night taking those off. I will decide once it is all done if I want to sew them back on.
Today I will at least go through my stash and see what fabrics I have that might work with this. I am thinking maybe 3 strips between each pieced strip. Maybe a dark blue middle wide strip with a yellow narrower strip on each side of the blue.
