Stash Report Week # 33
It was a simple task. Go to the LQS and get the 4 5/8 yards of fabric for the finishing kit for the Kansas Spirit BOM that I'm writing the finishing instructions for. True, I'll need to get border fabric for my Blue and Yellow stars to finish it, but I don't have to do that right now. There's plenty on my plate that I want to finish that I have all the fabric for. But since I was in the store, I wandered back to the clearance shelves to see if anything on them would work for the stars. Maybe - but I'll need to have the quilt with me before I buy. As I walk out of the room what do I spot but a bolt of fabric with music notes in Red on White!
But I've already finished the music quilt top! And I have enough music fabric to make 2 or 3 more -- including backing. But I am working on those red work snowmen and they'll have red and white pieced blocks -- so a FQ came home with me in addition to the 4 5/8 yard -- ok 5 yards of fabric for the BOM finishing kit.
So much for not making it though the first day of Burton's UFO Challenge on her blog Quilting Literati
Outbound I made 2 sets of 6 blocks for the SBS swap (6" blocks), 4 blocks for the birthday swap (12"), the last block for Kansas Spirit and cut all the fabric needed for the setting blocks.
So now for the report:
Fabric Added this Week: 5.25 yards
Fabric Added to Date: 168.25 yards
Fabric Used this Week: 3.865 yards
Fabric Used to Date: 62.618 yards
Net Stash: +105.632 yards
