Stash Report February 27, 2011

Posted by Pam in KC in Colorworks Dresden Plate, Dragonflies, Fun with Bricks, Stash Busting Report.

Nothing in this week — well, a friend did just give me a stack of blocks, but that doesn’t count on the Stash Report — the Tops in Progress list, maybe.

As for fabric usage the beginning and ending of the week saw me cutting fabric for the dragonfly quilt. In between I worked on the Dresden Plate quilt. I cut the dark fabrics for the dragonfly quilt early in the week and then put it up to continue working on the Dresden Plate.  By the end of the week I had to cut more background squares for the Dresden Plate.  From each width of fabric I got two backgrounds and a dozen squares for the Dragonfly quilt.  So, I guess I’m committed to the solid black for the Dragonflies.  I think I have 6 1/2 yards left, plenty to do the borders and bindings of both quilts and then some.  And yes, I added the black squares to the bag of fabric for the dragonflies and will work on them at the sew-in next month – unless I finish the Dresden Plate before then.

Of course, in surfing the web, I found a postage stamp quilt that I started drooling over.  I had to give myself a stern talking to about NOT digging into my 1 1/2″ strip box and cutting squares to use as leader/enders.  I don’t want another new project in my life at this point in time — not to mention that I have a stack of bricks to stitch together for a Fun with Bricks quilt, which I started as my leader/ender project last month.

Thanks for inspiring me to keep up with the Stash report. I see purchasing fabric in a whole new way this year. I counted the fat quarters I got for my birthday. I don’t have any plans for them so they were just added to STASH.

I like all the black and white fabrics, I have a small stash of those I have not done anything with yet.
