Stash Report - Sept 16

I put the binding on 3 quilts this week, which used 1.5 yards of fabric.  And, I cut all the pieces for my next quilt - 4 1/4 yards. Plus the backing for my lone star, which was 3 1/2 yards.  So total used this week is 9 1/4 yards of fabric.  A good week!

Of course, those who read my blog yesterday know that I completely blew my stashbusting efforts, by bringing home a pile of pretties.  About 30 yards worth (but it was all on sale, Mom!). Lots of lovely batiks on the sale shelves yesterday - can you believe it?  I'm in heaven, but I have no firm plans for any of this fabric.  So I guess I'd better get going on the current quilt, so I can plan a batik beauty from all this new stash.

Total out this week: 9 1/4 yards out

Stash usage this year: 143 yards out

Hop over to Patchwork Times to see what everyone else has been up to. 


  1. Those are beauties, indeed. I wouldn't have been able to resist,either.

  2. Sure is hard to resist all the great fabrics out there, especially Batiks on sale! 9 yards in one week is a lot of quilting.

  3. That is a great week. My downfall was the 50% and the 6-% weeks at the quilt shop as they were reducing inventory to move.

    But I am in the busting area again! Yeah!


  4. Oooo, such a lovely bunch of batiks. I can see a beautiful quilt in the making. Just curious - do you not keep track of your YTD incoming fabrics? I like your way of thinking!!

  5. Very pretty stash enchancements. Congrats on the 9 plus yards out, that's a really good week.
