Stash Report week 14 – 2015

Stash Report – 2015 Week14
No finishes this week and I have made no progress with my Meet in the Middle Quilt. Having an 8 week old makes quilting kind of difficult. I did buy some fabric this week for baby quilts. One is a quilt kit from FatQuarterShop.com for a Very Hungry caterpillar quilt, and two “Rolie Polie” pre-cuts. Can’t wait! 
Week 14

Used this Week: 0 yards

Used year to Date: 22.46 yards

Added this Week: 10.38 yards

Added Year to Date: 15.38 yards

Another Project

2015-09-28 18.24.50

When I was working on the many flying geese units for my Sunburst Quilt, I thought about tossing the so-called “bonus triangles,” but there ended up being so many that I kept them in this tin. I know Ive heard of others using these HST and I thought I might, too. Lord knows I need more fabric added to my scraps pile [not really] so I hope I can come up with a project for these soon. Jean over at QuiltSocial has some good ideas. If you have any ideas feel free to share them! Hopefully this can be a project I can work on for some time like I intended for the Meet in the Middle project. 😛 Oh well, best laid plans!

Stash Report – 2015 Week 3

I had a finish this week so I can show some movement in my numbers! Woo hoo!

I also finished another couple small projects I mentioned in my stash report a couple of weeks ago, making flat sheets for Henry’s toddler bed. I’m probably jumping the gun a bit, but I have the fabric so I figure I might as well get started. I wanted to buy the fabric now before it sold out or became unavailable. He won’t be needing them for a couple of years, but it will be nice to have them done ahead of time instead of trying to find time to make them when I have a toddler running around. Why put off until tomorrow what can be done today, right? I used this tutorial from Sew Tessuti. It doesn’t have yardage requirements for a toddler bed, but I used 2 yards and that seemed to be enough. I made two flat sheets.

Used this Week: 12.66 yards

Stash Report – 2015 Week 2

I don’t have a finish this week so I am not going to count any fabric out… but I didn’t get any fabric in so that’s good! If you’ve been following me on Instagram and/or Twitter, you know that I’ve been a busy little bee when it comes to these Sunburst blocks. The pattern I’m working from calls for 12 blocks and I finished the 12th one a couple of days ago. I’m working on putting them all together and assembling the quilt top; hopefully I’ll have it finished by next Sunday and I can show some movement in my numbers!

Week 2
Used this Week: 0 yards
Used year to Date: 9.8 yards
Added this Week: 0 yards

Net for 2015: 4.8 yards used

This week was a little busy for us, by our standards anyway. Michael had a check up with his oncologist at City of Hope, of course it rained that day so it took us almost 3 hours to get there with California rain traffic. Luckily it only took us about an hour and a half to get home since the rain cleared up. His blood work looks good, we are just trying to get him to eat more and maintain his weight. He’s lost about 10 lbs since his surgery because he doesn’t have much appetite and sometimes struggles with nausea. When he does get hungry, can only eat very small portions. He’s been doing well with eating the past 4-5 days though so I’m hoping we’ve turned a corner and his stomach will get back into the swing of things. Mike will be happy to be eating something other than protein shakes! I also had my 36 week pre-natal appointment on Friday, now that I’m in the last month I’ll be going to the doctor weekly until Henry arrives. My doctor is expecting him to weigh 8.5 lbs… oh boy!

Stash Report

I’ve infrequently done these stash reports in the past, but I get discouraged after so many weeks of inactivity. Not anymore! Thanks to finishing Henry’s quilt, I’ve used up some fabric. I’m going by the fabric requirements listed in the pattern, I don’t have a lot of faith in them but it’s all I got!

I bought some really cute fabrics this week, hopefully next week I can count them as used since I’m currently working on a project with them. I bought 2 yards of the first two fabrics; I plan on making toddler sheets for Henry’s bed out of those. The last three were end of bolt clearance items I am using on a new quilt 🙂

Stash Report

Well I won’t bother numbering these since I’m fairly sure I won’t do it every week. I actually bought these fabrics last year but I never counted them. I just unpacked them so I will add them to my stash today.

The fabrics on top are flannels, the ones on the bottom are regular cottons.

Stash Report – Week of May 20, 2012

This week I worked on Granny Squares from my stash and I stopped by JoAnn’s last night to get some Granny Squares and small yardage. I want to try and use all different pink fabrics on each Granny Square, but that’s going to be hard!! Maybe I’ll use the solids twice at the very least :blush: Here are the new fabrics I picked up:
