Stash Report, week #42

yes folks, here it is---the final count down is on!
After this report there's only 9 more weeks left to stash bust in 2010.
So how are you going to bust more stash???

fabric in: 0
fabric out: 26.20 yards
fabric in YTD: 64.75 yards
fabric out YTD: 217.42 yards
net used: 152.67 yards
yards over goal: +52.67 yards

this week i valliantly resisted poking buttons (but just barely--YIKES!)
i used 6 yards for the backing for "Arrowhead", and cut out Kate's "Christmas Redeaux" quilt using Judy's "Note to Self" pattern, which will take 20.20 yards.(enlarged to king size)

if you'll recall last year i made her a Christmas quilt which got messed up at the quilter's. So no Christmas quilt from me last year for Kate. :-(
But i'm trying again this year, so we'll see how it goes.
The fabric I'm using is from last year's 'Glace' line. It's amazing how much of this line is still left in the shops--lucky me!

This Sunday I'll put the binding on "Nightfall" (the Civil War repro quilt) and then it goes on my bed!

Well, the placeholder you gave us was still quite nice! And isn't it just Murphy's law that last year we visited and the quilt didn't survive. Now this year we won't be coming ($600/each just for the plane!) and dollars to donuts this quilt will be fabulous and I won't get to open it in person :-(

P.S. Hurry up and get a camera! Please? :-)

Congratulations on getting some much started! Your stash numbers look terrific. I think I need a serious quilt retreat in order to bust any significant amount of stash.

Wow! You did it! Heck you did it for some of us. Your stash numbers are fantastic. I want to be just like you next year.
