Baby Giraffe!

Woohoo!  Gertrude is complete!  I finished up my baby Giraffe Abstractions today (well, the top, anyway).  In the photo, you can't tell the size - it's 1/2 the original size, so it finished at 22x30".


I have no real idea how much fabric this took - I pulled from stash, and didn't measure as I used it.  I'm going to ballpark that it took about 10" (on average) of each of 8 colours, so that's 80", or 2 1/4 yards of fabric.

I also have my 2 plus quilts (seen here) to add to my stash report today.  4 1/4 yards for the black and white, and 4 1/4 yards for the grey.

and I guess I should own up to some fabric purchases recently.  Over the past couple of months a few bits & pieces have come home:
1. Paris fabric, to replace a quilt I sold  - 8 yards
2. Some greys and backings from a new shop I discovered close to home - 10 yards
3. and some impulse purchases from hours 6-8 at Quilt Canada - 15 yards




So, a sorry state for my stash report today after a couple of months off.
11 1/4 yards out, 33 yards in.

2016 totals:
108 1/4 yards in
117 1/2 yards out
Total: 9 1/4 yards out
Head over to Patchworks Times today for more stash reports.

  2. You stayed in the black and have an impressive amount used, so I would say it is a good report. I love the giraffe...great job!

  4. Love Gertrude! It's a very fun quilt. Even with all that coming in you are still in the black. Not a bad year.
