Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art

Sunday Stash Report: 4/21/13



Well, it was all buy this week and no use.  I was feeling a distinct lack of solids and neutrals, and my DH and I found the perfect day to make a trip to The Fabric Shack.  I know that those of you around the world who buy from them because of their low-cost shipping are jealous that I am close enough (forty-five minutes) to visit there.  It is a great store to visit.  The stuff just goes on and on.  However, they have more in their online store than they can fit in the brick and mortar place.  Kona solids, for instance, are never completely represented when I go there.  Their warehouse is in town, and if they’re not busy (ha!), and you can wait long enough, they might bring over the bolt you need, but sometimes it is just easier to order.  Still, we had a very pleasant spring trip, and I found the floral on a good sale.


I’ve been sewing all week (when I wasn’t fabric shopping), but I only succeeded in quilting half of my queen sized Nicey Jane quilt, so nothing to count as used.  Maybe next week?


If you like numbers, notice that I’ve used exactly twice as much as I’ve purchased this year.  So if I buy another hundred yards… No, I guess not.  As you can see, my stash is already out of hand.


This week:  +12.75 yards,  -0 yards

YTD:  +50.5 yards, -101 yards

Net stash used in 2013:  50.5 yards


How are you doing on your destashing?

  1. Twice as much used than added means you are not only freshening your stash, but also reducing its mass. Wow! That is impressive.

  2. I agree with Charlene – impressive report. I wish I could do as well. Love the fabric and quilting you showed. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I’m drooling over that top fabric you bought–so pretty. The quilting on your Nicey Jane quilt is gorgeous.

  4. I love your quilting.

  5. Beautiful quilting and fun new fabrics! Congrats on your destashing efforts.
