Beautiful sewing weather here! This week I finished The Very Large Christmas Quilt, but I don’t have good photos yet, so all you can see is the binding. Looks good enough to eat, doesn’t it? All 300+ inches of it! No, the binding went fast. Machine binding is one of my favorite parts. The quilt was heavy and unwieldy to quilt, but it used ten and a half yards of fabric, including a lot of old pine cone and Christmas fabric, as well as some new pretty yardage.
This week: + 0 yards, – 10.5 yards
This year: + 91.75 yards, – 135.50 yards
Net fabric destashed in 2015: 43.75 yards
Fifty yards looks like a piece of cake now, doesn’t it? Could I do one hundred? Hmm.
Hope you’re doing well with your stash! I’m linking up to Judy’s report at Patchwork Times.

Your binding DOES look like peppermint candy canes. Can’t wait to see your Christmas quilt. Congrats on a finish.
