Stash Report Week # 46

I've completely ignored my Sylvia's Bridal Sampler blocks so far this month. Maybe over Thanksgiving weekend I'll get all 5 of them done for the month. It will only add up to about 5/8 yard, but every inch counts.

The binding is going on the graduation quilt! I made it last night, so 5/8 yards out.

This past year I've reached for that fabric on more than one occasion to use it for something -- the last time I stapled a note to the selvage so I wouldn't use it and then wonder what happened to the binding fabric for Josh's quilt.

The note is now off the fabric and the remaining 7/8 yards is in the "blue" bin so I can use it for something else.

Fabric Added this Week: 0 yards
Fabric Added to Date: 282.333 yards

Fabric Used this Week: .625 yards
Fabric Used to Date: 90.386 yards

Net Stash: +191.947 yards

See how others are doing on their stash busting effort by checking out the links on Judy's blog Patchwork Times.


  1. Good for you for not using that binding fabric for another project. Can't tell you how many times I've done that! About that stashbusting effort . . we may need to talk about which direction you're supposed to be heading! :)

  2. I cut the binding strips and put them in a little ziploc bag with a label for what quilt they are for.That way I don't have to worry about accidently using the fabric for something else.

  3. I think quilters use a LOT of ziplock bags!
