Stash Report May 7, 2011

This was the week for quilt backs.  I made two quilt backs early in the week for this weekend’s quilting, but when I got home last night I changed my mind on what I am going to quilt this afternoon.  As a result, I made two more quilt backs.  I also made the binding for “Summertime”.  It’s still not completely sewn down.  So lots of fabric out that I’m counting this week.  I’ve got about 1/2 of the fabric cut for the Crossword Puzzle (CP) quilt, but I’m going to count it when I get it all cut.  I expect to get the rest of it cut this week and it will nicely offset the backing fabric I expect to arrive later this week and count in next weeks report.

Early in the week, I bought several more red FQs for CP, but after I got to cutting I realized I needed more and why just buy 4 FQs when you can buy 8 FQs?  Actually I ended up with 4 half yard pieces since several a couple of the pieces were $5 and  FQ were $2.50.  At this point if I don’t have enough fabric, I’m making the quilt smaller!

Here the numbers:

Fabric Added last week: 5.875 yards
Fabric Added to Date: 67.019 yards

Fabric Used last weeks: 19 yards (got to love weeks with backings)
Fabric Used to Date: 83.923 yards

Net Used for 2011: 19.904 yards

Good Job! I need to do bigger quilts! My backing only used a little over 3 yards. Happy Mother’s DAY!
