Stash Report Week 30-33, 2011

I'm back!! I have fabric in my new quilt studio and I'm ready to report the last few things that I purchased. And since things are back in the studio, I actually have pictures of what came in. Woo hoo!

I had plans to work on a bug jar quilt for my nephew and had to get some new, more 'grown up' fabrics since the fabrics that I had gathered were a little cartoonish. I got 7 small cuts and a fat quarter.

And I got a cut of Bella in the Hay color for the background of the blocks. This matches pretty nicely with the wood grain fabric that will be the shelves.

I counted the Hay on my last report along with this WoW Michael Miller. It looks like snowflakes on white.

I also bought 30 pounds of fabric on Friday, but Jean says that if it's purchased by weight, it doesn't count so I am going with that. I am scared to even try to see how much yardage it is. Plus, I am sending some to Regina. :)

Now that I am putting my fabrics on the shelves, I might have another FQ bundle to report. I think that I saw it still in it's shipping box when I was loading up boxes and emptying the small bedroom.

Fabric added this week: 1.81
Fabric added year-to-date: 94.75

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

Net Fabric Used: 2.84

Still not too shabby!

The frog fabric is adorable. Like the spiderwebs too.

Glad that you didn't have to count the weighted fabric. I am impressed by the amount of fabric that you have used this year so far. I also think that you will move a lot more with your new room set up. Happy quilting!

I am anxiously awaiting the bug jar quilt. My DIL and I want to do a jar quilt with fruits and vegetables and also try to make some bushel baskets of stuff! So far we don't have a plan/pattern!

Bwahahahaahahahahaaha. I only filled two drawers on my storage thingy with that fabric folded. I kept out 2-8" stacks that I'm shipping out to a friend.

I made my son a bug jar quilt and used Glow in the Dark thread in some of the jars. I "wrote" our names in some of them too.
He loves it-although now it "doesn't fit"-too short.
