Stash Report April 15, 2015

Can’t believe it’s been almost a month since my last stash report! Believe it or not, I’ve got TWO quilt finishes this week so we’ll be seeing some real movement in my numbers. I’ll be sharing those posts once the gifts make it to their recipients.

I didn’t buy too much fabric this week, just two mini-charm packs. One was more Hushabye Hollow prints (oops, I forgot I had already bought a charm pack of that) and I bought a mini charm pack of Midnight Garden by One Canoe Two for Moda Fabrics:

Looks really darling, doesn’t it?

Used this Week: 7.86 yards

Used year to Date: 13.36 yards

Added this Week: 0.5 yards

Added Year to Date: 13.5 yards

Net for 2018: -0.14 yards de-stashed

Closer to even!

Stash Report March 18, 2018

I bought quite a bit of fabric since my last report. What can I say, I was weak!

First up, I caught a flash sale on FatQuarterShop.com for this sweet charm pack. I’m always making baby quilts so I thought this would be great for one of those:

Then, I caved to temptation and bought a jelly roll of the V and Co ombre confetti fabric that’s been floating around, the pre-order came with this pattern…

So then I had to buy a couple of yards of black and white fabric so I have all I need for the pattern. Plus I found some cute yardage in the remnants bin at JoAnn’s…

I do have a quilt top finished this week but I am not going to count it until the entire quilt is done.

Used this Week: 0 yards

Used year to Date: 5.5 yards

Added this Week: 7.5 yards

Added Year to Date: 13 yards

Net for 2018: -7.5 yards de-stashed

Back in the red!!

Stash Report February 4, 2018

If I get one stash report done a month, I’ll call that a victory! I have a finish under my belt this week but I will be waiting to post it until I give it to the recipients.

I started a new quilt this weekend that I bought new fabric for, so that will be another dent in my numbers. I used the last of my white fabric on my last quilt, so I bought a fat quarter bundle from the FatQuarterShop.com:

I thought I’d go with some printed whites this time to give the quilt a bit more interest. So here’s the numbers:

Used this Week: 5.5 yards

Used year to Date: 5.5 yards

Added this Week: 2.5 yards

Added Year to Date: 5.5 yards

Net for 2018: 0 yards de-stashed

Well, at least I’m no longer in the red!!

Stash Report January 14, 2017

New year, new numbers! Except I’m already starting the year in the red, oops! I happened upon some seriously cute Michael Miller fabric on sale at Hobby Lobby the other day and bought a couple of yards of each.

Magic Folk Navy Metallic Yardage by Sarah Jane for Michael Miller – MD7190

Michael Miller – Melodies Collection – Folk Birds – DC6863

And then last week I checked out a quilt shop for the first time and bought four fat quarters I couldn’t resist as well as a quilt pattern:

Just Another Walk in the Woods Pink Forest Furries by Stacy Iest Hsu for Moda 20523-12

Handmade by Bonnie and Camille – June in Red (55140-11)

Creekside Midnight Soar 37534-16

Couldn’t find out any info on this fabric.

So here’s the breakdown:

Used this Week: 0 yards

Used year to Date: 0 yards

Added this Week: 3 yards

Added Year to Date: 3 yards

Net for 2018: -3 yards de-stashed

I haven’t done many of these this year I’m afraid. I completely forgot to do it after I finished Rainbow Pinwheels back in May. So I’ll add those numbers as well as the numbers for Blue Diamonds.

Used this Week: 9.75 yards

Used year to Date: 27.25 yards

Added this Week: 0 yards

Added Year to Date: 1.5 yards

Net for 2016: 25.75 yards de-stashed

I was so tempted to buy more fabric during Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, I’m so proud of myself that I managed to hold off. I’ll end this year in the black. Thanks for stopping by. I’m linking up with Patchwork Times.

Since I’ve got a finish this week, I can show some movement on my numbers. I still have two baby quilts to do, I’ve started on one at least. And two more people have asked if I would be willing to quilt for them on commission. I’ll be moving soon so I’m not sure how realistic that will be to take on. We’ll see!

Loving this movement on my numbers! Hoping to make a big dent in my stash this year. Thanks for stopping by. I’m linking up with Patchwork Times.

Nothing in or out this week. I’ve finished piecing Butterfly Blossoms but I’ll count that once I finish quilting it. I’m still working on basting it at the moment. Here’s a funny picture from when I was piecing the top… I accidentally sewed a border on backwards, lol!

The rain finally stopped this week, so I decided to hang all of my son’s cloth diapers outside.

They were in serious need of some good ol’ natural sun bleaching. In the summer I used to hang them outside to dry after every wash, but they take so long to dry outside in the winter that I got out of the habit, and it shows. I’ve got a few used cloth diapers coming my way, more is always better! (they were used only for a month and I’ll be stripping them thoroughly before putting them on my baby)

And yes, that is my son’s wading pool from the summer still outside, waiting to be put away… judge not lest ye be judged!!

It’s been raining here lately, here’s my dog Jetty cuddling up in his bed staying nice and cozy!

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!!

Today my son Henry is 13 months old! Here we are at JDRF’s One Walk last week to raise money to cure T1 Diabetes

Well, I have a quilt finish under my belt, thankfully, so I can show some movement on my numbers. I used a kit to make most of the quilt, and I never added that yardage to my numbers so I’ll just be counting the yardage I used for the border I added and the backing. I’m really happy because I used a few smaller pieces I’ve had forever to piece the back, so now those are out of my stash and just a few small bits made it to the scraps bin.

img_4967 I stopped by my local quilt shop and added some bright white fabric to my stash, I was all out, and picked up some In Dreams (Lavender) By Dear Stella Design to use as a border on another baby quilt. I’m hoping it will match with my Good Fortune Charm Packs from a couple of years ago.

Used this Week: 1.125 yards
