Stash report for Jan. 18 – Jan. 24.

Sorry Sadie. I fell off the wagon. I did buy some fabric the week of Jan 18. Blame it on my sister & your mom. I do admit I was weak, and went into the fabric store with my sister. I did however, spend less than $15.

Fabric Bought this week: 3.25 yards

Fabric used this week: 2.5 yards

Bought YTD: 3.25 yards

Used YTD: 3.0 yards

Net yardage: + 0.25 yards

My cousin & his wife just had a baby boy. My cousin is a HUGE Dallas Mavericks fan. So, while I was poking about in the “Half Off the Clearance Price” fabric. I found nearly a whole bolt of Mavs fabric @ $2 per yard. Normally I would have snatched up a bunch and figured I would make him something fun later. I restrained myself and bought only a yard and a yard of blue flannel as backing. I now have a finished baby blankie.

I also picked up some fabric for Lady_Belle’s butterflies for her ATWQB quilt block. She has some beautiful fabrics with gold ink highlights and these two pieces will look good with her quilt. I needed the right browns to finish the attic window frames too.

The Halloween fabrics were on sale (60% off) and I needed to make a few extra 9 patches for my Halloween quilt. I used most of them for Mom’s quilt top. I did some separate swaps for blocks and those needed the spacer blocks too. This is the fabric that I haven’t used yet, as I haven’t had time to get back to the Spooky quilt.

Weeks 5 & 6

Jan. 25 – Jan. 31       No new fabric bought.

Feb. 1 – Feb. 7             No new fabric bought.

I will have the ATWQB blocks to deduct at the end of this week. Whoo Hoo!

Stash report for week Jan. 4th – Jan.10th. (A bit late)

Some progress made in using up material, and no shopping trips!

Fabric bought: 0 Yards

Fabric used: Approx 1/2 yard

Fabric Bought YTD: 0 yards

Fabric Used YTD: 1/2 yard

Net fabric used: 1/2 yard

I know this does not sound impressive. I am estimating the amount to the low side. I made four ATWQB blocks and they ranged in size from 10 inches to 12.5 inches square. Since I did not use up one whole chunk of fabric I have to estimate the total yardage used. This seems pretty close to me.
