Stash Report Week #29...

July 16-22, 2010

I'm setting this post up in advance as I should be on my way to Pennsylvania for a quilt show right now.  I'm pretty sure this trip will result in another hit to my stash report next week.  I can only guess how much...

Last week I was still waiting for some fabric I ordered to come in.  Well, it's here now, washed, pressed and added to my stash.  I bought 3 yards each of 3 different tone on tone fabrics.

9 yards of neutral fabric

From the top down they are Nancy Halvorsen Good Tidings, Basic Grey Fruitcake Sugar Cookie and Basic Grey Fruitcake Pine Branch.  I don't have a project in mind for these but I'm was running low on neutral backgrounds so these will fill that gap.  (By the way, I managed to pick these up for almost 60% off - woohoo!)

I also purchased 2 charm packs of Park Avenue by 3 Sisters and a Moda scrap bag.  I was pleasantly surprised by how much fabric was in the scrap bag.  I got 30 strips of Sandy Gervais' Awesome line.  I was able to cut each one down to 2.5" for a mini jelly roll.

These are some great autumny prints and I think I'll use them to make a wall hanging for this fall.  Between the scrap bag and charm packs, I estimate there's 3.5 yards of fabric.

And my final purchase was 2.5 yards of Kona cotton for the classes I'm taking at the quilt show.  So every bit of that will come off next week.

And as for what I've used this week, it's a big fat nothing!  I've worked on a bunch of things, but haven't finished them yet.

Purchased-this-week: 15 yards
Used-this-week: 0 yards
Purchased-to-date: 170.25 yards
Used-to-date: 285.25 yards
Net used: 115 yards

And I think I'll end with this snapshot I got of Moses the other day.  Her coloring is so dark, it's really hard to get clear photos of her.  But I caught her laying claim to the scratching pad that all 4 cats share...

Until later...
