Stash Report October 24, 2010

Posted by Pam in KC in Stash Busting Report.

This week there was more fabric in than out.  The week started off with quilting the Row Quilt, but both the backing and bind was counted last week.  Monday night was Guild where Sally Collins was our guest speaker.  Between seeing her exquisite quilt and the Guild auction in the spring,  I decided to try my own hand at making a mini quilt.

Mini blocks just don’t take  a whole lot of fabric.  I’ve got the fabric cut for another dozen of the 1″ stars — well into strips.  If I cut the actual pieces, they might end up in the trash they are so small!

Mini quilts also require fabric with tiny prints. This required shopping.  I have more than enough fabric to complete my mini quilt, but I want variety.  So, over the next few months I’ll need to pick up another 4 or 5 FQ.

Saturday I got to meet Mary of Quiltn’ Grandma’s Blog.

Mary was in town visiting her son last week and on Saturday while he was at work we went to the Sewing and Quilting Expo and to Peddler’s Wagon in Parkville, MO (do not trust Yahoo! Maps for this store).    That’s where I picked up the white and cream fabric for my redwork snowmen.

So, here’s this week’s damages:

Fabric Added this Week: 3.5 yards
Fabric Added to Date: 154.011 yards

Fabric Used this Week: 0.257  yards
Fabric Used to Date: 86.901 yards

Net Stash for 2010: 67.11 yards

Check out how others are doing over at Patchwork Times.

Yikes! those are small blocks. But, it will be a wonderful quilt. I am always amazed at the small quilts when I see them at the quilt shows. Have fun! liz

Yup, mini’s don’t use a whole lot of fabric but they sure are fun to make. Your blocks look great. You may have added fabric but you are still in the black. (And sometime a girl just has to shop.)
