Stash Busting - 12/21/2009

I'm a day late with the stash report, but I wanted to get my fabric counted for this year since I probably won't be able to post anything on the last Sunday. :-)

Here's Rainbow Skies that I finished up a few weeks ago for my husband's Grandmother. I hope she'll really like it. We were going to hand deliver it, but she lives in Boston and we're definitely glad we didn't drive out there this past weekend....if we did, we'd still be there due to the snow! The fabric for this quilt was already counted, but its another finish for the year.



I love having the Christmas tree up this time of year. The little lights just make it look happy and I love turning off all the other lights in the house and just seeing the tree lit. It just makes me happy for some unknown reason.


So...onto more quilty stuff...

I finished up the quilt top for another baby quilt this past week, but after seeing it all together I didn't really care for my fabric choices for a baby quilt. The fabrics are pretty bright instead of pastels. So that quilt will get finished up and then sold on Etsy or something like that. I did have to purchase fabric for the baby quilt that we plan to give to some friends who are due in January. Thankfully, that fabric hasn't arrived I'm not counting it yet. :-)

I did cut everything for a quilt that I'm calling Sixties Charm. It uses charm squares in the middle portion that have a sixties feel with greens and browns and the sashing between the squares is a nice chocolate brown. Since that fabric is cut, which means it WILL get used... all 2-1/4 yards gets counted.

So with all said and done, here are my numbers at this point.....

Fabric Added this Week: 0 yards
Fabric Added YTD: 131 yards

Fabric Used this Week: 3.38 yards
Fabric Used YTD: 45.12 yards

Net Fabric: <85.88> yards

While I didn't really have a goal for this year, its interesting to see how much fabric I actually bought versus used. I didn't think that I would actually use 45 yards of fabric this year! I think in 2010 I'll have to up the stakes a bit and try to break even with my purchases and the fabric used....maybe I'll even be able to make a dent is the stash I have.

Happy quilting and Merry Christmas.
