Stash Report Week 16, 2011

This will be another exciting Stash Report for me this week because I am reporting my purchases and gifties from the Quilt Show in Cincinnati.

Here is what I purchased - 2 kits which I am not counting as coming in and I won't count as going out because I didn't want to figure out how much fabric that was; 3 FQs; 2 layer cakes and 2 charm packs of Fresh Flowers; 1 yard of Fresh Flowers yardage; a couple of yards of Valentine Hunks; and 5 yards of white tone on tone. Great deals on everything!!

And here is what I received as gifties. A 5 yard quilt kit in dog fabric. Woo hoo!


And here is what I busted. Almost 4.5 yards of backing for the Split Decision quilt.


And yardage for blocks 6 through 10 of the Midget blocks. The last time I counted fabric for blocks 1-5, I only counted 5" of fabric and someone commented that they thought it was too low so this time I am counting 1/3 of a yard. I think that does seem a little more in line with all of the paper pieced blocks.


And here's my numbers!

Fabric added this week: 21.29
Fabric added year-to-date: 64.07

Fabric used this week: 4.77
Fabric used year-to-date: 48.91

Net Fabric Used: -15.16

In the red! But I am not too worried about it right now. I am working on 2 quilts today to assemble and once they are done, I think that I am going to cut out the Fresh Flowers and the dog fabric and get those kits ready. Woo hoo!!!

You're only barely in the red, and can make it up with backs in no time!

Great stuff. It's always fun to get new stuff. As Jennifery said, it won't take you long to get back into the black.

I love your Whimsy quilt!

Alycia said...

Your purchases are great! Sounds like you had fun. What are you planning with the hunks *grin*

Paper piecing does seem to use a lot of fabric. I have only tried it a few times for that reason, but your blocks are really nice.
