Stash Report July 31, 2011

This week the report is mixed.

One of the quilts I signed up to finish as part of  both Judy’s UFO Challenge and Heritage Fine Fabric’s UFQ program is my QIAD Christmas Row Quilt.  I participated in a block swap in November 2008 and my goal is to have the top done by the end of the year.  I think it was June’s UFO.

Anyway, I’ve finally come up with quilt top design which handles the variances in the block sizes (they were all supposed to finish at 12″).

The red fabric I’ve picked is called Holiday Luminosity.  I’m not sure what the green fabric is call and believe it or not, the white fabric is included in the picture.

So, that’s what came in. Who knows when I’ll start to use it.  It’s got to be washed first.

But fabric used.  I get to count the backing & binding for Fireworks Over John Deere and the backing for the Crossword Puzzle quilt.  I finally got the second seam done.  I’m going to bind and label the baby quilt and the mystery quilt, then make a decision about the quilting on the Crossword Puzzle quilt.

Fabric Added Last Week: 9.365 yards
Fabric Added to Date: 99.384 yards

Fabric Used Last Week: 10.333 yards
Fabric Used to Date: 126.195 yards

Net Used for 2011: 26.811 yards

All is good as I’ve used more than I bought and I hope to use what I bought before the end of the year.  Although Judy is frantically packing and not sewing, check out the link at Patchwork Times to see how others are doing with their stash.

I like the row quilt layout! it looks planned even though it wasn’t originally. You’re ahead of me on the fabric used and purchased. We all have hopes of using more than we buy the rest of the year, right??

I like the new layout of the Christmas quilt since it has more of an impact with the rows (vs the diagonal approach).

I had to take a fe extra looks before I saw the white fabric. That is a bright white!
