Stash Report Week #20...

May 14-20, 2010

Hey guess what?  I bought NO fabric this week.  That's great considering the huge amount I bought last week. I won't say I haven't been very tempted though.  Very, very tempted.  There is a good sale going on at Hancock's of Paducah on some of their pre-cuts.  On one hand, I don't need any more fabric.  But on the other, I could make some great quilts to give away for not a lot of money.  What would you do?  You'll have to check back next week to see what I've decided.

I used 2 yards of fabric this week while practicing doing pantographs on my Grace frame.

I also finished 2 more blocks for the Ladies of the Sea quilt I'm making for Mr. Quilting Bug.  The backgrounds used a little less than half a yard and the appliques a little more than half a yard, so I'm calling 1 yard total.

In addition,  I finished the June and July Camelot Snowman mini wall hangings for my mom.  I used half a yard to complete them.

And finally, I also finished the Stuffed Feathers table mat where I tried out some trapunto.  Again this only took half a yard of fabric.

 So my grand total for all these small projects (in size - not time) was 4 yards!

Purchased-this-week: 0 yards
Used-this-week: 4 yards
Purchased-to-date: 112 yards
Used-to-date: 169.25 yards
Net used: 57.25 yards
