Stash Report Week #21...

May 21-27, 2010

To sum up this week - A lot came in, not a lot went out.

I mentioned last week about the sale Hancocks of Paducah was having on their jelly rolls.  I kept a close eye on 3 of them while I tried to decide whether to buy them or not.  But when the one I liked the most (Verna) sold out, I think I panicked.  I was afraid they'd all be gone if I didn't gobble them up.  So I did.  I ordered 4 of them - more than I had planned.  (I told you I panicked.)  Well, the package came on Wednesday and it only had 3.  It seems they didn't have enough of another one - Rural Jardin - my second favorite.  So here's the 3 I did buy...

From left to right, they are Looking Back by Brannock & Patek, Martinique by 3 Sisters and Oz by Sanae.  They're all very different, but I like them.  Which is good because they added 8.25 yards to my stash.

I also bought 3 yards of Kona black cotton for Shannon's next block swap and 1.5 yards of a medium blue for Judy's Memorial Day Challenge.  Fortunately, I have all the rest of the fabric in my stash.

And finally, I have a birthday coming up (tomorrow) and received 1.25 yards of batiks from my quilt bee.  (We give each person a fat quarter of their choice for their birthday.)

So that's a grand total of 14 yards in.  (I said it was a lot.)

And I did finish a quilt this week.  But it's a gift for someone who occasionally frequents my blog so I don't want to share a picture until she gets it.  Suffice it to say I used 4.5 yards on it. 

Purchased-this-week: 14 yards
Used-this-week: 4.5 yards
Purchased-to-date: 126 yards
Used-to-date: 173.75 yards
Net used: 47.75 yards

Until later...

Fill your minds with those things that are good and that deserve praise: things that are noble, true, right, pure, lovely, and honorable.

  1. Those are great fabrics. Jelly rolls are always so tempting and we can do so much with them! I like your choices. Enjoy your week.

  2. I love all the fabrics you chose. You enhanced your stash very nicely.

  3. I love the fabrics you choose. I understand that feeling of panic. I've had it myself. :)
