Stash Report Week 9

Used this week  0 yds
Used year to date  61.375 yds
Added this week  8.125 yds
Added year to date  19.375 yds
Net used 2011  42  yards!

I'm still ahead of the game, but my net used number is shrinking!  Of course, I am only calling the fabric "used" when my projects are completed, so I'm sure it will turn around soon.
  I realized that my collection of neutrals was quickly dwindling, so I picked up some on sale at Joann's.  I still had some of the fruit fabric from the stack n whack projects, but I had to add some more of the darker green fabric.  Then I attended the Tampa quilt show on Friday and 5 fat quarters that I can add to my redwork stash, jumped into my tote bag!
 I finished two more redwork fairy tale blocks from Bobby Socks Quilt Co.  The Princess and the Pea is the only block with another colour, as I just had to stitch the pea in green thread!

I just love the smug look on the cat/tailor's face in this interpretation of the Emperor's New Clothes!
I also pieced blocks 10,11 and 12 for the Raggedy and Friends BOM from the Painted Quilt, and I'm almost finished the embroidery on block 10.  A busy week, even with two sets of visitors and a quilt show.
Now head back over to Judy's blog to see how everyone else is doing.......


  1. You are doing great on your usage. Everytime I use a few yards there is some fabric that I run out of and have to go buy somemore. At least I am being more selective.

  2. Your stitching is SO fun. I have to check out that pattern!

  3. Those are cute blocks. I think adding a spot of green was appropiate!liz

  4. Those fairy tale blocks are great -- and your green pea is the perfect touch!


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
