Sunday Stash Report: 9/30/18

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

Net destashed 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!

A big finish this week, so the numbers look good!

This week: + 0 yards, – 10.5 yards

This year: + 63.5 yards, – 97.5 yards

It’s been hot here, but as soon as it cools off I hope to get to work one of the Christmas panel quilts.

Hope you’re staying safe from the weather, and finding time to use your stash.

If I keep this up, I’m on track for using my goal of fifty yards by the end of the year.

How are you doing?

S…Monday Stash Report: 2/26/18

Yesterday got away from me, between a birthday celebration and the Closing Ceremonies, but it’s been two weeks since I had anything to report, so I wanted to check in.

No fabric was purchased this week, and I had a big finish with the Quilt of Valor.

This week: + 0 yards, – 10.5 yards

This year: + 33.75 yards, – 44.50 yards

Net destashed  added in 2018: 10.75 yards

That’s starting to look a little more into the black!

We don’t count thread purchases, do we?

And I made 96 of these cuties, all trimmed to perfect 2″ squares, for Summer Stars at Fawn Lake.

Keep using your stash!

I bought no fabric this week! That’s an improvement. And I finished this Scrappy Stars quilt. Back into the black! Just barely.

This week: + 0 yards, – 8.75 yards

This year: + 33.75 yards, – 34.00 yards

Net destashed  added in 2018: .25 yards

Not much, but I’ll take it.

And I bought my studio this very cute tote, as I continue to declutter, dust, etc., a little at a time.

Go sew that stash!
