January 10th, 2010 - Stash Report Week #2

I certainly hope I can keep this pace up all year or be close. I think this is the most fabric I’ve used since I started stash busting. It was all from my stash except 3.25 yards of flannel I needed for a quilt backing. And yes I needed it because I didn’t have something even close to the top colours and I like it to match just a little. Oh, and I went to the LQS and got my Jan BOMs and didn’t buy anything else besides thread. There was this new fabric line from Robert Kaufman and it was beautiful but I’ll get it some other time. Like after I get to the 100 yard mark and even then I’ll have to think about it.

Fabric added this week: 3.75 yds

Fabric added YTD: 3.75 yds

Fabric used this week: 29.785 yds-2 tops and 4 backings, chenille rug, borders for Trees For Sale plus a bunch of little things

Fabric used YTD: 31.035 yds

Net fabric busted: 27.285 yds

 I’m hand sewing the binding down on a comfort quilt. I need to make another comfort quilt this week and I’m going to try  to match it to the flannel I already have on hand. I’d better get busy and start sewing. And I have to go back to work tomorrow. Uggh!!!!
