Stash report Week 17

I finished a UFO this week, and started a new project, so there are some numbers to report.

Used this week:             1.7 yards
Used this year:              57.9 yards
Added this week:          0 yards
Added this year:           95.5 yards
Balance:                       +37.6

So close to breaking the 60 yards used point. If I keep going with the new project, (pics tomorrow), I should be able to break that 60 yards used mark. Woohoo! I would love to be able to wipe out that positive balance by the end of June. I don't know if I can do it, though. Especially because Quilt Canada is coming to my town in May, and there will be a merchant's mall, where I am sure there will be yardage added numbers. But, it's a good loose goal to have. Go on over to Patchwork Times if you want to see some more stash reports. Judy has pulled this month's UFO number 9, which is my disappearing 9 patch. That's a good one, since the blocks are all made, and just need to be sewn together. On the down side, I won't be able to count it as stash used, since I count as I make components for quilts, and these are all made. There might be borders I can count on them, though.


  1. You are close. Quilt shows really are a tough temptation especially after you've looked at all the quilts hanging. You just feel inspired to buy more.

  2. Is that the show that's in London? I'm going to that one and then to the one in Kitchener/StJacobs. I can't imagine what my totals will be then. I don't really need anything but I'm sure I'll find something to buy. I'm excited as you must be too!

  3. There's also the Quilts of the Netherlands show in Ailsa Craig May 23-28, starting with a town-wide quilt airing Sun. May 22nd...
    We had a few of the quilts at one of our latest guild meetings - there's some amazing works of art represented! (Of course, there will be vendors there too!)


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.
