Stash Busting Report-2011, week #3

fabric in: 3 yards (backing)
fabric out: 13.32 yards
fabric in YTD: 7 yards
fabric out YTD: 22.57 yards
fabric busting goal: 275 yards

this was a good week! I got in my backing for the second Christmas quilt (now called "Christmas Row quilt")so that went in and right back out of my stash. that UFO quilt will go to the quilters soon, and be back in early February.

this week i cut out my second quilt this month using the "Butter, Charm, and Jelly" pattern, and the "Portabello Market" fabric from Moda. I decided to add an extra row to the leingth, and pulled all the fabric from my stash! As a result of some long hours in Pam's Sweat Shop, (aka the quilt room) my fabric busting totals are really getting there this month.
Only 5 more yards to go, and i will have busted almost 10% of my goal!

What's even better is that i checked this month's progress against the same week last year, and found out that I'm way ahead of where i was then.
So after i get the Portabello Market quilt top and backing sewn together and ready for the quilter, i'll start quilting on my #6 UFO for the rest of the month.

that UFO quilt is already counted from previous years of stash busting work, so i'll finish the first month of this year in the black and looking good!
