Stash Report Week #30

Very soon now I'm going back to busting fabric which will be a good thing for my numbers, but first i have to catch up on all my curent projects and get them finnished.

Fabric in this week: 5.75 yards.... 1 roll of oatmeal strips (boy do these come in handy!) and 3 yards of champaign dots.

Fabric out this week: 6.75 yards...quilt backing for Antique Thimble, 2 pillow cases.

Fabric in this year: 39.25 yards
Fabric out this year: 12.25 yards (still in the black!)

I worked hard the past two days catching up on the Fruit & Veggie quilt, and went thru 340 2 inch squares. But the good part is that i now have only two more fruit/veggie strips to sew together, and then i get to press all the seams (!!!) and sew the top into one piece. this quilt will wind up being about 63 x 80 (final measurements still to come).

But i'm saving the good news for last, because i'm using up almost every inch of that nice tower of fruit and veggies that Vicky (LA Quilter) sent me! I'm cutting two 10.5 inch squares of each fabric to sew together for the backing, and making strips for the quilt binding.
This is going to be a colorful quilt!

Well it sounds like you are busting stash now. 5.75 yards is great. I am so impressed with your planning on the fruit/veggie quilt. I too am looking forward to seeing it finished. Good job.
