Stash Report - June 22

I've been an absent blogger recently.  Life has been hectic and I just haven't had the energy to post (plus I haven't been sewing much, so there's not a lot to say).  However, I thought I should pop in before you all think I've disappeared off the face of the earth :)

Yesterday was a sale day at my local quilt shop. And my birthday, so naturally I had to stop in and pick up a few things. I've been wanting to do a blooming 9-patch quilt for some time, and the sale was florals, so that seemed like the perfect opportunity.  I did manage to find some lovely fabrics for my quilt - too bad only 2 of the 7 were florals.

I also finished a quilt this weekend. I'm on a mission because tomorrow is the end of the UFO challenge at guild.  I have one more quilt to bind, and I will have completed all 5 of my tops.

Stash in -

12 1/2 yards for the blooming 9-patch
3 yards just because

Stash out -

7 yards backing
3/4 yards binding
1/2 yard binding on my mystery quilt

Stash totals for the year:
439 3/4 yards in
112 1/2 yards out
Total: 327 1/4  yards in

Design Wall Monday

I fnished a quilt this week. Just in time, so I can take it to guild on Wednesday for the big reveal.  This is the guild mystery quilt for this year. I can't wait to see all the others.

Not much else to show today. I have a bunch of 1/2 square triangles sewn together, but they need to be trimmed and pressed still, so there isn't much to see there, and nothing else is on my design wall right now.

Stash Report - Jun 8

I finished a quilt at the sew-in day last weekend.  I just had the borders left to do, so I figured I'd knock that out quickly and get a good start on a new quilt.  Apparently borders take a lot longer than I thought, and 3 hours later I finally finished it. 8.5 yards used.

I also put binding on 2 baby quilts - 3/4 yards used

My weekly quilt store trip, to pick up the block of the week had typical results.  More fabric came home with me.  At least this time it was from the 50% off bin.  5 yards in.

Total this week - once again in the black.  4 1/4 yards used.

Stash totals for the year:
424 1/4 yards in
104 1/4yards out
Total: 320  yards in
