New Year, new stash numbers! I’m so happy. I ended 2016 using more fabric than I bought, but only by about 2 yards, so I’m hoping to do better this year. I have a finish under my belt already for this year which I’ll be posting about Friday, it was a fairly large quilt and all from my stash, yes!
I also started a new quilt. I am following the Butterfly Blossoms tutorial by MSQC. I used some Good Fortune by Kate Spain for Moda Charm Packs that I had bought a few years back for the quilt. Luckily I was able to find some yardage online for the border fabric. I thought I would be able to use some other fabric I had bought last year, but it didn’t look right. Hopefully I will be able to use that fabric for the backing.
My goal this year is to really thin out my stash. The Butterfly Blossoms quilt is for a cousin’s baby due in April and I’m happy I was able to use mostly fabric from my stash to make the quilt. I have another cousin due in May and I’m hoping to exclusively use fabric from my stash. It’s so hard with all these new adorable fabric lines coming out all the time!!
