Stash Report Week #1...

January 1 - 7, 2011

A new year, a new stash report.  And it looks like I'm going to be starting this one in the red.  Hopefully it's not a trend though.

First off, the 15 yards of Moda Bella Solid Snow that I ordered from Fat Quarter Shop arrived.  I laid the bolt out on the table and when Mr. Quilting Bug got home, I asked him what color he thought it was.  He immediately said yellow.  When I mentioned it was called 'snow', he said he couldn't imagine where there would be snow that color - unless perhaps in a highly polluted area in China. 

Bolt of Modal Bella Solid Snow
I laughed at his response.  Don't get me wrong, the fabric is a beautiful soft, pale shade of yellow with a great hand.  I know I can use it in any number of quilts.  It just isn't the off-white that I expected from the name and picture.  I'll probably end up ordering a bolt of the white in the not to distant future as well.  Fortunately, although the fabric just arrived in my house, I counted it all in my final report of last year.

I did purchase a couple more items from Fat Quarter Shop that do count this week: a La Petite Ecole charm pack and another Lumiere de Noel jelly roll.

La Petite Ecole Charm Pack and Lumiere de Noel Jelly Roll
So now I have 4 Lumiere de Noel jelly rolls which should be (hopefully) more than enough to make a king size quilt for our bedroom.  Between the charm pack and jelly roll, there's 3.5 yards of fabric.  I was also fortunate enough to win a Dilly Dally layer cake from Green Fairy Quilts that adds another 2.75 yards - for a grand total of 6.25 yards.

The only fabric I used is a yard of batiks that I gave my friend Kathy as part of a Thank You gift.  Once I finish binding a quilt, I can count that, but it will have to go towards next weeks report.

So,
Purchased-this-week: 6.25 yards
Used-this-week: 1 yard
Purchased-to-date: 6.25 yards
Used-to-date: 1 yard
Net used: -5.25 yards

Until later...
