Sunday Stash Report

Sunday, June 14, 2015
New numbers this week--

Stash in this week--31 yards
Stash in YTD--171 yards
Stash out this week--0 yards
Stash out YTD--162.5 yards  

 
Stash is ahead 8.5 yards!

This week I added 31 yards of background fabric.  A 25 yd bolt of 200 thread count muslin from JoAnn's.  Its VERY nice, feels just like the 200 thread count Kaufman muslin I have.  At $2.70@yd it was a good buy.  I can make 2-3 large quilts with it, sometimes a consistent background will pull a scrappy quilt together.  It was only available as a whole bolt purchase/internet only--free shipping.   Also purchased were 6 yards of assorted neutral backgrounds to add to my stash.  I love assorted neutral backgrounds in quilts.  Please see everyone's stash report at Patchwork Times.

Sounds like good buys.

You can't go wrong with backgrounds and neutrals. Your in/out is still nearly in balance. Good work!

Ahhh, neutral backgrounds and good muslin, both so essential! I'd say that you scored a great deal on that muslin. Was it unbleached natural or the white one?

Way to go! When I finally purchase, it will be thanks to running out of neutrals.

Wow - what a purchase! You better get busy stitching now. I should be on the lookout for a deal like that, although i'm not buying fabric this year.

Backgrounds are on of those things that tend to go right back out. Sounds like a great stash addition.

Great purchase - neutrals and backgrounds are sure to get used up quickly. Your usage to date is great!
