Stash Report Week 29, 2011

Well, I bought some fabric this week! I had a gift certificate that I needed to use up before it expired and I was thinking about getting the Happy Mochi Yum Yum from the Fat Quarter Shop, but I couldn't think of anything to do with it so I bought some white on white instead. When I was picking fabrics for the newest SIS quilt, I couldn't find any white on white in my stash so I figured this would be a good addition.

Then, when I was drawing up the pattern for my bug jar quilt, I needed something for the background in the blocks. I picked a Bella Solid and found it online for a great price. I got 3 yards which is a little more than what the pattern calls for. Since I went shopping on Thursday and found better bug fabrics, I might need to make extra blocks so the extra yardage will come in handy.

I also got the bug fabrics, but I can't remember how much I bought so I will add that to next week's report.

No pictures yet. All the new fabric is downstairs for now.

Fabric added this week: 7.00
Fabric added year-to-date: 92.94

Fabric used this week: 0.00
Fabric used year-to-date: 97.59

Net Fabric Used: 4.65

Still not too bad!

Yay for new fabric! Can't wait to see the bug quilt. My stepdaughter would like that. She loved her etymology class in college and years after still collects and mounts bugs.

If you used a gift certificate does it still count? Ah, how we can rationalize to ourselves...

What fun projects you have in progress! Where do you like to shop online for fabric?
