In the two weeks since my last report, I’ve completed a quilt completed a quilt using 7.5 yards of fabric.
Also in that time, I purchased 17.25 yards of fabric. Three are large pieces for backings, one is a good binding stripe, and the four greens are just stash enhancement, since I’ve found I’m very weak on greens.
This week: + 17.25 yards, – 7.5 yards
This year: + 80.75 yards, – 105 yards
added in 2018: 24.25 yards
One thing to note is that I’ve passed 100 yards of fabric used for the year. My net usage fell, but I have a few projects in the works, so I’m not worried. I still hope to destash 50 yards by the end of the year.
And I sent this quilt from 2017 off to Quilts of Compassion to donate the someone in the Carolinas. I really loved the colors in this, but it didn’t fit in anywhere here. They won’t be transporting them there until late November, so you have lots of time send one if you wish.
Now go sew that stash!

I wondered what happened to you last week. Looks like you are making progress! Yay on using 100 yards of fabric. I’ll send you some greens if you want. I have a lot and rarely use them.

Thank you, but I’m good (enough) now.
