Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art

Sunday Stash Report: 5/19/19


This week I finished this baby quilt, and used a piece of fabric that had been in my stash for a long time. And I didn’t buy fabric this week.

This week: + 0 yards, – 3.5 yards

This year: + 45 yards, – 50.75 yards

Net destashed added in 2019: 5.75 yards

Slowly heading in the right direction.

Keep using your stash!

  1. Colorful baby quit. Congrats on your numbers!

  2. Congratulations on a quilt finish! More congratulations on using up stash!

    As fast as I use my stash, I seem to be replenishing it. I either need more self-discipline or to quit my job at the quilt shop.

    • Ha, ha! That could be the problem! I’ve reduced my stash a lot in the last few years, so I’m resigned to just using a little at this point.

  3. Great job! I have a friend who tries to have zero gain in her stash every year. I think this must be what you are doing whereas I have a goal of using 100 yards of fabric over and above what I buy.

    • About 6 years ago that was my goal for a few years, and then 50, and this year I’ll be happy with 25. Most of the large pieces are gone now.
