Stash Report Week #9 - 12...

March 4 - 31, 2012

Soooo much more sewing going on here lately.  I finished 1 quilt, a quilt top and a handy dandy coupon organizer.  Oh, and I also bought some fabric this past week too.  Surprisingly, I actually have stuff to report this time!

Let's start with what I used.  My last couple of posts have shown the bulk of it.  I finished La Maison a couple of days ago and I used 1.75 yards for the back and binding.

Yesterday I also managed to finish the quilt top Child's Play.  This will be a donation quilt once it's quilted.  I used 2.75 yards for this one.

Finally, a couple of weeks ago while visiting my mom, we each worked on making a coupon organizer.  We used the pattern Coupon Organizer by iSew.  This was a fun little project.  The directions were very clear, but of course, we made a few changes of our own.  Unfortunately, when I was done, I realized it was a little too small for me to use.  I'm going to have to make another, much larger one in the future.  My mom decided it was useable for her, so she's keeping the one I made and gave hers as a gift to a friend.  I used 1.25 yards to make mine.

A look inside...
Those are all the projects I finished in the last month for a grand total of 5.75 yards used.  Coincidentally, this almost perfectly balances my fabric purchase of the past week.  I bought 2 Layer Cakes of Butterscotch & Roses by Fig Tree Quilts.  I have a lap quilt in mind for these.

Purchased-this-week: 5.5 yards
Used-this-week: 5.75 yards
Purchased-to-date: 15 yards
Used-to-date: 26 yards
Net used: 11 yards

Not very impressive numbers this year, but I have spent more time in my sewing room this past week.  It's a trend I really hope to continue.  And lucky me, I'm also going on another quilting retreat in a couple of weeks.  I'm bound to get lots of eating talking sewing done then!

Until later...

  1. Very nice organizers! It is fun to change up the pattern!

  2. Ok, so now I see the picture of your organizer as to why it took so much fabric. At first I thought, man that is a lot of fabric for an organizer but now I understand why. Looks great, but I don't think I would of wanted to have made 2. It looks tedious. And your quilting on La Maison, WOW, need I say more?!
    I won't begin to tell you how much fabric made it into my stash last month, lets just say it was a busy month for the postman at my house.
