Sunday Stash Report - April 10th 2011

Fabric added this week:  0 yards
Fabric added YTD:  8 1/2 yards
Fabric used this week: 3 1/2 yards
Fabric used YTD:  32 3/4 yards
Net used for 2011:  24 1/4 yards

I'm so prod of myself, I finished the two Easter table runners from last year.  It took a few  strips for the border, backing and binding for a total of 2 yards used.
February's UFO challenge was also finished to where I'm left with hand sewing two sides of binding,  don't remember if I counted the backing yet, but it turned out too short and had to add a couple of 10" strips plus the binding for an additional 1 1/2 yards used.

Honestly? I'm just guesstimating how much fabric I used, it was written down on a now lost piece of paper, but  I'm finding that it's more exciting and satisfying to have finished a project than to have the exact measurements of how much fabric I used, the fabric is gone from the shelves! That feels great!

There is still some playing with the pastel nine patches

It could possibly be a finish top by next weekend, I'll certainly will try!

Sunday Stash Report - April 3rd 2011

Fabric added this week:  0 yards
Fabric added YTD:  8 1/2 yards

Fabric used YTD:  29 1/4 yards
Net Used for 2011:  20 3/4 yards

I had so much fun working with all pastel colors last week and wanted to keep playing with them.  I've worked on scrappy nine patch blocks every now and then, accumulating them for a future baby quilt.  I pulled them out of their baggie and started planning and playing
The patches are so cute and happy! 5 Fat quarters of 5 different prints were cut into 5" squares, I hope to have enough blocks to make a 45" x 65" quilt.  I'm also setting up my machine to start quilting UFO challenge #10 (it was layered and pin basted yesterday), it's February's UFO but I'm determined to finish it by next weekend.
To warm up for the UFO's quilting, I'll be quilting these runners from last year
I know, a little ambitious, but these colors put me in a good and positive mood, plus I need the practice.  April promises to be a fun month!.
