Sunday Stash Report - August 7th 2011

Fabric added this week:  0 yards
Fabric added YTD:  46 1/2 yards
Fabric used this week:  1/4 yard
Fabric  used YTD:  74 1/4 yards
Net used for 2011:  27 3/4

This week the sewing room was not visited as often as I wanted, but I did work on the RRCB string blocks
I thought I had made the required 60 blocks but I'm short three and ruined one by cutting it wrong. Since I'm gonna have to get the neutrals strings out of hiding and there are still a lot of them, I decided I would make additional blocks and as many as I can but this time with a constant print in the middle.  This is the print I'm using
The piece is 2 1/4 yards long, 1/4 yard was cut into strips for test blocks.  I think I want mostly warm neutrals with minimal color so I'm waiting to cut more scraps, maybe yardage before getting started. I may also get started on this month's UFO #7,
It needs to be layered, quilted and bound, it's small enough. I can probably get it done this week. I think I can!
