Sunday Stash Report: 6/12/16

Yep, I went to Fabric Shack this week, so the numbers will be out of whack for a while.  I had to buy it, really, because it was in my June Goals to get border and backing fabric for a WIP.

Now I have enough to back several!  I ordered on line, and then we went pick it up, instead of having it shipped.  Of course, that resulted in adding another yard…

This week I recovered the seat cushion for our outdoor settee and made a couple of pillow covers from the scraps.  That wasn’t from the stash, though, it was stiff, surly outdoor fabric with which I’m glad to be finished.

The only quilt fabric used was three quarters of a yard for the eight donation blocks for Kat.

This week:  + 21 yards,  – .75 yards
This year: + 74 yards,  – 79.75 yards
Net destashed in 2016:  5.75 yards

Keep watching as I use those backs!
Keep using your stash, even if you have to shop to do it!

I’m linking up to Judy’s Stash Report at Patchwork Times.

  1. Those fabrics are so beautiful I couldn’t put them on the back, especially the browns.
    I didn’t realize you are in Ohio too. The other end of it, but still the same state. I’ve never been to The Fabric Shack, but maybe someday.

  2. Valerie, your CiL blocks got here today. Thank you for your support!
