August 26th, 2012 - Stash Report

I went to a little quilt show, well not so little and all I bought in the fabric department was 2 kits which I will count in next week’s totals. It was the AQS Show in Grand Rapids MI. There were some beautiful quilts, not what I expected though. A lot of heavily machine-quilted quilts and not too many traditional quilts. Very modern in that aspect. But on the vendor side, there were a lot of booths with civil war fabric and wool like Primitive Gatherings kind of stuff. Thank God it’s not something I do. That wool stuff is really expensive for those tiny pieces and threads. I’d rather be making a big bright quilt than that stuff. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Anyway on to my stash.

Fabric used this week: .38 yds

Fabric used YTD. 118.23 yds

Fabric added YTD: 180.27 yds

Net fabric busted: -62.04 yds

All I cut was some binding for a comfort quilt. I have a few more quilts to get done to clear the table. I really need to make a quilt for my new grandson. Time to get busy. Have a great week.

    A new grandson – how wonderful for your family. Last time I went to Quilt Festival in Houston there weren’t many traditional quilts. The art quilts are amazing, but just not my thing.

    Oh I’m jealous, I really wanted to go to that show!! Yes, you need to make Lucas a quilt right away – and more than one!!!

    This is one of Shasta’s BFF’s. We had breakfast together in Grand Rapids. I just wanted to say Hi. Love your post and I agree with your comments. I also wished there had been vendors with yardage but I know that must be hard to handle at a show. Congratulations on your grandson! How exciting! Maybe we’ll run into each other at another show.

    That was such a chance I took asking you if you knew Shasta when I don’t even know her, I just know of her. I enjoyed our breakfast and the show too. Good times!
