Stash Report July 3, 2011

Posted by Pam in KC in Stash Busting Report.

No fabric used in the past two weeks and only 1 quilt shop visited on our 12 day road trip.  I saw a couple, but either there wasn’t enough time to stop or it was after hours.   Since I had my niece and nephew with me the fabric I did buy is for them.

I’ll be making my niece  the Bellance bag.  She picked out a new Robert Kaufman black and white print for the bag, a bright pink for the accent and another Kaufman black and white for the handles.  I didn’t want to have to think, so I got a yard of each.

My nephew, not wanting to be left out, picked a FQ for me to use to make a quilt for his frog. That’s a Build-a-Bear frog, not a live frog.  It’s a Christmas print with peppermints on it.

When I checked out my niece  said “Wow! That’s more money than the purse Momma and Daddy wouldn’t buy me.”  I told her it would cost more before it was done, but it would be made with love, last and be washable.  I also told her she might not getit until Christmas.  Good kid that she is said that was OK.

So, here’s the report.

Fabric Added Last 2 Weeks: 3.25 yards
Fabric Used Last 2 Weeks: 0 yards

My totals look weird and I don’t have access to my spreadsheets, so I’ll  update the  year-to-date totals next week.

Meanwhile, checkout the links over at Patchwork Times to see how others are doing.


Found the issue with my totals.  I didn’t update the year-to-date total on the 17th.    The corrected year to date totals are:

Fabric added to date:  90.019
Fabric used to date: 113.825
Net fabric used: 23.806

Sounds like a beautiful purse for your neice. Love the idea of a peppermint qulit for your nephew’s frog. Very cool!

Wonderful job making her feel so much love.

it’s gotta be fun for the kids to select their own fabric. That purse is going to be beautiful.
