November 22nd, 2009 - Stash Report Week #47

Only 5 weeks to go before I give up for this year. But I must say, I’ve used quite a bit of fabric this week. I’ve been good and didn’t even buy anything when I went to the LQS and looked around for a muse. I went home and found my groove and decided to start some Christmas projects. Or should I say finish some that I started  1 or 2 years ago. They are 2 panels of “Santa’s Got The Goods” and I think I have enough to do the fronts and I’ll be doing pieced backs from my stash. The only thing about these 2 quilts is the size requires 4 yards for the backing but I think they figured it out all wrong. How can a quilt that measures 50×52 need 4 yards for the backing. According to my calculations it only need 3 yards. And then I can use the leftovers from the first one for the second one and only use 1.5 yards for the second. Got it? Sounds like a plan to me.

Fabric added this week: 0 yds

Fabric added YTD: 256.11 yds

Fabric used this week: 13.75 yds

Fabric used YTD: 240.73 yds

Net fabric busted: -15.38 yds

 If I get the panels done and a few more journal covers and  find a few quilts that need backs and  so on, I might be in a really good position. Closer to that zero. And I have to stay out of quilt shops.

Have a great day.

    I think they round up on yardage, to be on the safe side in case there is a need for matching patterns.

    I pulled out a couple Christmas panels to see if I wanted to get them done for the holidays, but I think I already have too many projects going. I need to work on the WIP list!

    You went to the LQS and didn’t buy anything…wait a minute, my jaw is around here somewhere. I seem to have dropped it. *giggle* Your projects sound great!
