Adventures in Fabric Art

Sunday Stash Report and March-a-Long 3/24/13


Stash fabric

Yes, there’s more fabric!  Fourteen yards, to be exact.  But it was all on sale, and mostly nice basics that I need.  Besides, remember that I had to buy some so that I didn’t make my goal of 100 yards too early.  The Pink and Gray quilt used 7.75 yards, all from stash, so it’s really like I only bought 6.25….


This week:  +14 yards,  -7.75 yards

YTD:  +35.75 yards,  -90.5 yards

Net stash used in 2013:  -54.75 yards

How are you doing on destashing?


Yes, Darla, I’ve sort of been marching along this week.  There were a couple of days when I got no sewing done, but I wrote a blog post, sent Frances some fabric, photographed quilts, etc.  I must have logged some hours, because I did make the pink and gray quilt, so you can tell I’ve been trying.  Keep it up, everyone!

I’m linking up to Sunday Stash on Patchwork Times and March-a-Long at The Scientific Quilter.

  1. LOL – you HAD to buy fabric so you wouldn’t reach your goal too soon? That’s priceless and valid -grin. Congrats on taming that stash.

  2. Those are some seriously gorgeous new fabrics Valerie! I don’t remember when I bought fabric last time! I’m only de-stashing for sure! :)))
