Stash Report May 28 ’17

IMG_0819

Shakespeare in the Park is DONE, DONE, DONE!  Yeah.   This quilt used approximately 23 yards.  I made it bigger than the pattern (Judy Martin’s) and pieced the back.  I know I already showed a picture of it, but here it is again!  Can you tell that I’m glad it’s totally finished?

 

Stash Report:

No fabric purchased this week!  I didn’t even go through a door of a quilt or fabric store.  It’s almost amazing how you can avoid purchasing fabric by not going near any that is for sale!  unknown-jpg

Fabric Used this Week:      23  yards  
Fabric Used year to Date:  67.50 yards
Fabric Added this Week:    0  yards 
Fabric Added Year to Date:   40. 5 yards
Net Fabric used for 2017:    26.6 yards   I’m doing a happy dance!

Linking to:

This week, I’m linking to a new (to me) blog.  The previous blog that had the stash report link is no longer doing it.  Another quilter has agreed to have a linky for the stash report.   I found it interesting to read that some count their stash use when they cut or sew the fabric.  I guess I had never thought of that! However, since my goal is to decrease my UFOs and my stash – I’m only counting my stash use when the quilt is finished.  Completely finished.

Happy Quilting
Gail

  1. Beautiful quilt! Congrats on the finish. Plus congrats on the the great stash numbers too! I always count as I use it because at that point, it’s not going back into the stash. I do it that way because my finishes are so rare, I’d never count anything as going out!

  2. I’m glad you re-posted a picture of Shakespeare in the Park. I think I must have missed it before. It’s such a stunning finish. Oh, and congrats on the stash report.

  3. Congratulations on your completion Gail! It’s gorgeous!
    I’m trying my hand at taking the scraps from all the quilts I made in my first year (started June 2016) and pulling them together into a quilt called “Year One”. I sorted them this evening and will post a pic of my piles on fb. Wish me luck!
