Stash Report - Oct 9

I went out today, and did some damage to my stash report.  I needed inspiration for my next quilt, since the star is almost done.  I also grabbed a quilt that's waiting for backing, and took it along to see what I could find.

Backing successful - and off the sale table, even.  50% off more than makes up for the fact that they didn't have wide backing in a suitable colour.  4.5 yards in with this purchase, but it will be heading out relatively quickly, I hope.

I also found my inspiration.  A Hallowe'en quilt, which may make use of this panel I was given a couple of years ago (or may not - it depends how to colours look once my blocks are made.  The block pattern has been chosen, so I'm ready to go as soon as I sew the last few seams on the star quilt. 2.5 yards in.

So that is
4 yards out - star quilt
7 yards in - backing and fat quarters
For a total of 3 yards in, this week.

Stash Totals for this year:
Overall, 28.75 yards in, 71.50 yards out.
Net for the year:  42.75 yards out.
