Wow! This may be my largest stash report ever. At least I hope it is. I would hate to think I've bought this much fabric in one week before! But as it was all on sale and fabric I needed for various projects, I consider myself fortunate to have gotten it. In particular, I already had a FQ Tower and Jelly Rolls of Park Avenue and Martinique fabric respectively, but nothing to go with them for borders, backing, etc. These lines are fairly old and I thought I was out of luck. So when I saw that Fat Quarter Shop was having a 40% off sale on these lines, I jumped at the chance to get the rest of what I needed.
Let's start with Martinique by 3 Sisters... I already had 2 Jelly Rolls of this line. I have several quilt ideas in line for it and plan to make a large lap/twin size quilt. So I bought a yard of the pink and 8 yards of the coral to use for borders and backing. (I would have bought more of the light pink, but they sold out of the rest of it before I finalized my purchase.)

Although they don't compare in scope, I do have some small finishes this week as well. I've completed another project for The Twelve of Us and mailed it off. I'll share pictures once she receives it. It used 2 yards of fabric plus I sent her another yard of FQ's with it. My giveaway ended and between the 2 prizes, that's another 3.25 yards.
Purchased-this-week: 42 yards
Used-this-week: 6.25 yards
Purchased-to-date: 182 yards
Used-to-date: 84.75 yards
Net used: -97.25 yards
By the way, I've already washed and pressed all of the new fabric! I don't iron clothes, but I really do enjoy ironing yardage. Strange. I've also got another quilt loaded on the frame. It will be for charity once it's done. And I've almost completed piecing all of the blocks for another quilt that I've yet to share with you. This has been a very busy couple of weeks quilting wise. I hope you're having as much fun as I am!
Always be joyful. Never stop praying.
