Stash Report Week 15, 2011

This was an exciting week for the stash reports! There were some purchases and some usage... Very exciting!

First, I was able to get the rest of the flamingo and Maxine quilts cut out. Now they are ready for sewing!


I also cut some strips and FQs for this year's SIS swap. Regina, her sister Sue and I have picked a pattern and are swapping Christmas fabrics. They both had their fabrics ready when they got here, but I had to pick up a few FQs from the show this weekend to add to the fabrics I had on hand. I finally got the strips cut just before Sue left to go home.

And I had a delivery from the Fat Quarter Shop this week! I mentioned that I had poked buttons last weekend and my Bella Solids fabrics arrived on Thursday. I was able to open the box and enjoy the wonderfulness with all the ladies here for the show! This is 28 yards of stone, Hershey, soft finish black, snow, sisters pink, red, natural and purple. And this fabric feels so yummy! I can't wait to start using it on some scrappy quilts!


I did get some fabric at the IQF show and the Fabric Shack, but it's still not organized so it will be added to next week's report. Well, it's not organized and I'm sure it will put me in the negative so I am stopping here. :-D

Fabric added this week: 29.25
Fabric added year-to-date: 42.78

Fabric used this week: 12.43
Fabric used year-to-date: 44.14

Net Fabric Used: 1.36

So very close to a net of zero right now!! Whew!!

That flamingo fabric sure looks fun. I haven't seen that before. My daughter always talks about flamingos.

Can't wait to see what you do with Maxine and the flamigos. Even you do go negative, I can' believe it will be for long!

I, too, can't wait to see what you do with "Maxine". I bought some and don't want to cut into it.

Lori said...

I LOVE the solids, I want to stroke them with you!

Weenie! C'mon suck it up and spill about your purchases. ;0)

You got a lot cut last week. You'll have to get cutting more though so you're not in the red.
