Stash Report Week #43...

October 22- 28, 2011

This was another week in which I purchased no fabric.  I probably won't be able to say the same next week though, because I need to order the backing fabric for one of my quilts. 

I also didn't use much this week, although I do have a couple of small finishes.  First, I used 1.25 yards for the backing and binding on this Schnibbles quilt.  I'll share more about it in my next post.

I also made this cute little pouch using the tutorial from Pretty By Hand.  From start to finish, it took me about 2 hours to cut and sew.  I've stuffed it full of candy and it will be a gift for someone.  In fact, I'm considering making a few more for Christmas as they go together so quickly.

Purchased-this-week: 0 yards
Used-this-week: 1.5 yards
Purchased-to-date: 363.5 yards
Used-to-date: 496.75 yards
Net used: 133.25 yards

Now that I've finished the Schnibbles quilt, I'm back to working on the 45 and Life To Go quilt.  I'm optimistic that I'll finish the top within the next week.   I've also got another fall quilt I'd like to get quilted before winter's here and another quilt that I need to load on the frame.  Busy as usual!  Hopefully you get to spend some time this next week doing something you enjoy - whether it's quilting or something completely different!

Until later...
