Stash Busting 2010 - Week 18

Its been a while since I posted for the stash busting effort, mostly because I was on a mini-hiatus from blogging.  But during that time I have gotten some quilting done.  I finished up the Sixties Charm quilt.  This is the first quilt that I quilted on my mid-arm machine (Viking MegaQuilter).  It came out pretty well I think for the first quilt.

This past week I've spent most of my time pressing and cutting fabric for the next quilt.  Its from Judy Laquidara's book Weekend Quilts.  Sorry about the picture being a little fuzzy, I think the batteries on the camera were dying.

So here's the stash report

Used this Week: 8.43 yards

Wow!  I have over 25 yards used this year and nothing bought.  I'm doing pretty good so far!

I am really impressed that you have gone over 120 without buying fabric. I am also impressed that you used a panto on your first quilt - good job!

Wow, your quilt is gorgerous. Amazing first attempt! Look at all those neat piles all ready to be sewn together. You've had a good week!
