Stash Report Week 31

There was a little bit of sewing done here this past week, but not a lot. Work at the hospital took up most of the time and days. And there was some fabric in delivered last week too, and I think I will be ordering some more, as well. My son is a Batman fan. He has all the movies, and collects the comic books. So when I saw this fabric at The Fat Quarter Shop, it had to go into my basket, and get delivered to me. It will make a perfect Christmas gift for him. I can safely talk about it, and show it here, because Laurie says he doesn't read my blog. So far, I only have The Joker's Back collection, but I am going to order the other Classic Batman, as well. The other thing that came in was a jelly roll of Charlevoix I've never ordered, or worked with a jelly roll before, (a collection of 40 2 1/2 inch strips, one from each of the fabrics in the design collection, for those of you who aren't quilters) And I've never worked with an entire fabric line, either. My current plan for it, subject to change, of course, is to do a Pineapple Blossom However, that is a ways away, as there is other stuff to finish first. So, on to the numbers

Fabric used this week:                          2.8 yards
Fabric used this year:                          85.5 yards
Fabric in this week:                              5.5 yards
Fabric in this year:                            106.5 yards
Balance:                                              21 yards more purchased than used. I don't know if this number is going to eventually get to zero, or even negative numbers this year. But it is nice to see it getting smaller. If I can get at getting some of the large number of quilts waiting to be quilted done, that will quickly use up a lot of yardage in backings. And now, I'm off to do some sewing, and some quilting. I hope you all have a good day.


  1. Holy Batman heaven! Who knew there was so much Batman fabric available. Can't wait to see what you make with your new fabrics!

  2. I'm really excited to see how the Batman quilt turns out! : )


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.
