Sunday Stash Report and a Small Finish

Sunday, September 23, 2012
Stash Report time--I haven't done a stash report since July!

In This Week--6.5 yards
In Year to Date--152.5 yards
Used This Week--2.5 yards
Used Year to Date--109.25 yards
Stash is ahead 43.25 yards 
Henrietta and I went to a quilt show and I bought two FQ packs--5 yards.  A quick trip to the local quilt store brought in another 1.5 yards.  Looks bleak you say??  HAH!!  Remember all those little yo-yos??  They use a LOT of yardage!  The 1200 I have already made used 21 yards of fabric!  There are several quilt tops waiting to be quilted.  I only count fabric "out" when the project is completely done.  A quilting spree later this year will reverse those numbers.  I know I've used lots of stash--my fabric storage cubes aren't stuffed anymore.

My finish this week was a small one for 2.5 yards.

I hand quilted it using heavy black thread and big stitches to give it a primitive look.  The soft pink binding was a leftover, and the green backing came from the scrap box.  

Please check everyone's stash reports at Judy's Patchwork Times!

You are just freshening your stash now while prices are stable, right?

The mini quilt is really cute.

Wow, 21 yards of yo-yos. That is impressive!

Very cute! Any finish is a good finish.

It is adorable! My son likes small quilts for his "pals" (currently he has 2 stuffed seals that he adores!). Or a doll quilt? Or one of those little dessert placemats that are just big enough for a dessert plate and cup of tea? Whatever you decide to use it for - it will be just perfect! Cheers! Evelyn
