Stash report, week 6, 2013

Since I cut out most of a quilt this past week, and since I count my stash as out once it has been cut for a project, I have big numbers to report this week.

Used this week:                              11 yards
Used this year:                            21.6 yards
Added this week:                             0 yards
Added this year:                          10.5 yards 
Balance:                             11.5 more yards out than in so far this year.

I think I like this business of having positive numbers. Of course, there is still an unpacked box of fabric that I purchased waiting over at the new place to be added in. But I just might be able to balance that off with at least some more used numbers. Most of that order is for backings. The rest of it is for kids quilts. I found while doing all those quilts before Christmas for the kids, that I like working with all the fun fabrics that work so well for kids. I have a whole pile of border prints and also some panels that were printed as squares, with pictures of different dogs and cats, that would make up into some fun kids quilts. The London Friendship Quilter's guild collects quilts for kids in the Children's Aid system, so some of those would be perfect for that. I'm linking up to Judy's Stash Report at Patchwork Times. Lots of stash reductions and additions to be found over there.


  1. That's a great place for kids quilts. I never thought about donating some to the Children's Aid here in Windsor. I don't belong to the guild here and when I did, that wasn't one of their charity's. I like making kids quilts, they're uncompicated and the kids will like them no matter what.

  2. Your numbers are looking pretty darn terrific! Can't wait to see what you have to open up -- sounds like fun stuff!! :)

  3. I love the idea of donating the quilt to Children's Aid. I think you for sure need to put a tag on that says it was made with love, just for them! Don't forget about the older ones either. I know quite a few that are in Foster Care. :(


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
