Stash Report

I spent yesterday at a quilt show in Montreal.  It was a great time, but pretty dangerous for my stash report.  $2.00 fat quarters.  25% off fabric.  So I brought a few pretties home with me.  Plus, an order I made a week ago arrived.  This was an attempt to buy some backing online - which means I bought several different fabrics, hoping that one would end up the right colour for the quilt. 

I'm sticking to my story however - my stash is pretty sad right now, after all the quilts I've made this year.  So I need fabric. Honest :)

6 yards - backing and binding for Carpenter's Star
3.5 yards - backing for Orca Bay

26 yards in the mail
10 1/4 yards at the quilt show

Totals this year:
79 1/2 yards out, 128 3/4 yards in
Net for 2012: 49.25 yards in

Drop by Judy's blog to see what others have done with their stash this week.


  1. Refresh the stash is always so much fun especially when it is sad.

  2. I like the way you keep track.....very straight forward. I planned to spend a bit at Machine Quilters Showcase but didn't make it.

  3. You'll get the fabrics used up in no time. It is good to have some backing fabric choices on hand for the next project. :)
