Stash Report - Jan 31

Wow, the last day of January.  Where did this month go?  I know where this last week went - it was spent sewing.  I got lots done, and made great dents in my stash.

First, I made some pillow cases for KonKerr Cancer.  Quick and easy, and a great way to use of some of the kiddie prints that I have.  They are just too bold for using in quilts (except maybe as backings), but they made wonderful bright pillow cases when paired up with some of my bright tone-on-tone fabrics.

They were a lot of fun, and quick to make, so I made some more.

I also worked hard on my son's quilt this week.  I just have the final border to finish to complete that top.  No pictures yet, though.

Totals for this week:
8 yards - pillow cases
.75 yard - lotto blocks
1 3/4 yard - baby quilt
2 1/4 yard - Grant's quilt
1/2 yard - cat pillow
Total out this week:  13 1/4 yards

In this week - nothing.  Once again I've managed to stay out of quilt shops this week.

Total in this year - 37 yards
Total out this year - 37 1/4 yards

Net this year: 1/4 yard OUT
Yay!! I've made it into the black this week.  And I've only cut the fabric for one of the 2 quilts I bought for earlier this month.

Check out Judy's blog to see how other quilter's have done this week.
