Stash Report Week 46, 2010

This week, I spent most of my time cutting the strip sets for the Radiant Star quilt for my granma. I got them all done yesterday and then spent time straightening up my quilting area.

I also prepped binders for the Super Secret Quilt and the Midget Mania blocks. I pulled my white background for the Midget blocks and the fabric for the first 5 blocks. I'd like to get at least 1 block done today so that I can post about the Sew Along tomorrow and it can actually begin. :)  I'm not going to count the fabric used in each block though. I think that I will count 5 or 10 blocks together. I haven't quite decided on that yet.

I was going to start cutting the fabric for the Super Secret Quilt (SSQ) last night since my cutting mat was cleaned off, but the fabrics have to be pre-starched and I still haven't decided whether I should cut all of one fabric for all of the blocks and then move on to the next. I have never pre-starched that much fabric before and I have no idea how much of a pain it might end up being. But I wanted to go through the patterns and look to see if the sizes should be modified a little for the HSTs and such since it gave me some pieces in sixteenths measurements. That will take a bit of time.

So here is the nitty gritty - no change to my report from last week! :)

Fabric added this week: 0.00
Fabric added year-to-date: 353.25

Fabric used this week: 0.00
Fabric used year-to-date: 238.90

Fabric Used: -114.35

Woo hoo!!! It doesn't look any worse! YAHOO!!! Now, I am going to get something quilted, try and work on the SSQ blocks and get something on my design wall for tomorrow!

Pre-starched. That's interesting. I've never heard of such a thing.
