Greetings from the frozen tundra! The quilt prints and bunny tracks have been covered twice since I took this photo!
Now the stash numbers look better, since I had the first actual quilt finish of the new year, with the Brights quilt. I’m figuring it at 11 1/2 yards. That seems like a lot, but I know string quilts are very fabric intensive, being mostly seams. How do you figure out the yardage on your scrappy quilts? If I’ve designed one on EQ7, I use their fabric estimate as a guideline, but I think they are often high (as in, “purchase this much so you’ll have enough”), so I often round down. And I think you develop a sense of it after a while. How do you do it?
This week: +0 yards, -11.5 yards
This year: +15.5 yards, -21.5 yards
Net stash used this years: -6 yards
Hope you’re all getting as much sewing time as you like, and are making a dent in that stash!
