Stash Report Tuesday – February 26, 2013

Another week has gone by and I haven’t bought any fabric! I’ve hidden the Hancock’s of Paducah catalog – it is just too tempting! Lent will be over in just a little more than a month. I might be able to hold out until the end of March!!

At least I didn’t give up chocolate!!! One of the ladies that was at the workshop on Saturday had given up sweets. She has WAY more will power than me – especially because she made some candies to bring to the workshop for all of us to snack on. And she didn’t eat one little bit!!

I know I showed you this picture yesterday, but I want to show it again:


Because I want to compare it to this:


I’d like to take a moment to thank Bonnie Hunter for teaching the workshop last July, where I started my Bedford Beauty quilt. She taught some good tips about assembling the various units to make them more accurate and to make it go together smoothly. And because I took that workshop, I was able to sound like an expert when we started working on the raffle quilt last Saturday!! I was very careful not to claim I am an expert!! But when I was able to say that I had learned how to put those units together more accurately, it felt good!! I gave the credit where credit was due and told them I had learned from Bonnie – she may get some more followers after this!!

Now, onto the stash report: I have cut 18 – 1″ strips for the sashing on the tiny triangles AND sewn that sashing onto the blocks, so I am going to count that as used. A girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do to show some progress around here!!!

Stash report:
Fabric used this week: 0.5 yards
Fabric added this week: 0 yards
Fabric used YTD: 15.5 yards
Fabric added YTD: 54.25 yards
YTD total: 38.75 yards added

WOO – HOO!!! A half a yard!!!! At that rate I will use the fabric that I bought this year in 77 more weeks!!

I’m thinking I better start some more big projects that get done quickly!!

  1. Hi- I love the idea of a raffle quilt using my Blackford Blue pattern from my book Flip Your Way to Fabulous Quilts. Your block looks great. Please be sure to give book credit with the quilt.

    Thanks and good luck with your raffle!
