Stash Report Sunday 8/31/14

Here we are at the end of August, two-thirds of the way through 2014! At this point I am feeling pretty good about my stash report. My goal for the year was to use at least 100 yards, which is less than 8 yards away. Looks like I should reach that goal easily. 

The other goal, and this will be tougher, is to use more fabric than I add to the stash. There isn't much difference between my yardage used vs. yardage added numbers, and one good sale could knock it all out of whack. I will just keep plugging away at my current projects, and see how it all turns out in December.

This week I used just over 2 yards. I made a pillowcase for my QOV Bowties Quilt, made the binding for my Scrappy Sampler, remade one of the blocks for the Tell It to the Stars mystery, and finished adding background hexies to my green hexie star.

There hadn't been any additions to my stash since early July, which coincided with my return to work. All those Labor Day sales are tempting, but so far I have been able to resist. However, I do have one lovely addition to report. I was the lucky winner of the Ironing Board challenge at Jo's Country Junction. Jo sent me a layer cake of Moda's "Surrounded by Love" by Deb Strain. I am dreaming of a very girly baby quilt with these fabrics.

Used this week:                          2.125 yards
Used year to date:                    92.75 yards

Stashed this week:                      3.0  yards
Stashed year to date:               89.75 yards 

Net year to date:   
                   3.0 yards used

  1. Your Tell It To The Stars quilt is lovely. Congrats on winning the layer cake. It is hard not to purchase fabric when it is on sale.

  2. Your numbers are great...good job!

  3. Still in the black even with some in, that's a good week. Love those pinks. They will make a sweet baby quilt.

  4. You have used a wonderful amount of fabric!! Good job. A person needs to add new fabric to keep us from getting stale! LOL
