Sunday Stash Report and Marching Along 3/10/13



Stash Report

The navy, brown, and orange quilt did nice things for my numbers this week (12 yards for that!).  So much so, that I’m worried I’ll make my year’s goal of destashing 100 yards far too early and have nothing to live for.  I think I need to do some fabric shopping to prevent that.  And Hancock’s of Paducah is having a good sale….  They have wonderful batiks…

This week:  +0 yards,  -12 yards

YTD:  +21.75 yards,  -75.5 yards

Net stash used in 2013:  -53.75 yards


We followers of The Scientific Quilter have been Marching Along this month, pledged to sew at least 15 minutes a day.  This has been an ideal week for me, since I’ve been home alone most of the week with very few outside commitments, so I’ve sewn every day for a few hours.  I finished piecing and quilting that navy and orange quilt (still need to find a box and mail it off).  Then I picked up the blocks for the Basic Grey “Sultry” quilt and finished assembling that top yesterday.  Thus I am really Marching Along on my Getting It Done goals for the month.  Sometimes in these gray days of winter it really does help to have all this external goading to keep moving along.  I’m sure spring will bring more personal inspiration and motivation!

March Goals

1.  Quilt navy, brown, and orange donation quilt.

2  Finish and quilt “Sultry” quilt.

3.  Finish and quilt pink and gray donation quilt.

4.  Finish queen quilt top for my bed.

How are you coming on all of your quilty goals?
