Stash Report January 22, 2012

Posted by Pam in KC in Uncategorized.

It was another good week busting fabric.  The Scrap Bags group on Quilt With Us has a quarterly challenge.  This quarter it is  Boxy Stars, Playing with Jacks or any Bonnie Hunter pattern.  How fun.  I love Bonnie’s patterns, and have my scraps pre-cut and sorted by color in their boxes (I did not press them, just rolled the strips up).    Anyway, it was easy to see what colors of squares and strips I had enough of and picked Playing with Jacks, which I finished the top of last night.

As I worked on Jacks, I kept sewing HST Squares for Ocean Waves.  I’ve sewn all I have cut – 1550, I need another 38 pairs, not to mention a slew to use for wings.  I’m going to pull my 2″ brick box and cut from there — it will give me greater variety than cutting from 2″ strips. Also made this week were more blocks for Ocean Waves. I think I have enough competed to assemble the second section.

Since I can’t sew without leader/enders, I’m stitching the pinwheels for the border.  I wish I had though of this earlier,  I just have 48 pinwheels left – of course that 3 leader/enders per pinwheel, so maybe it will get me further along until I figure out what I’m going to use as my next leader/ender project.

Here’s this weeks results:

Fabric Added Last Week: 0 yards
Fabric Added to Date: 4.25 yards

Fabric Used Last Week: 3.013 yards
Fabric Used to Date: 10.504 yards

Net Used for 6.254 yards
