First I want share a link to How to Track Your Fabric Yardage which was shared by Jeni of In Color Order today. She wrote a great article on the how's and why's of keeping track of your fabric. I started keeping track last year. I want to encourage all of you to start keeping track this year!

My new favorite backing color is gray with a touch of color. This one, of course, had to have a rainbow!
