Fabric used this week  19.625 yards
Fabric used year to date  103.125 yards
Fabric added this week  0 yards
Fabric added year to date  28.5 yards
Net used 2014  74.625 yards

I was finally able to count the fabric used in two quilts that were made while I was south for the winter, including backing fabric that was added just before we returned north.

Boxy Stars was made with tons of scraps, all leftover from previous projects.  The only "new" fabric was the striped border and the backing, both picked up on sale.   Machine pieced and quilted.
  Cherry Pie Friends began as a  small panel, and a collection of cherry themed fabrics.  The group sat together for more years than I'd like to admit, before the inspiration hit.  The backing was new fabric, also picked up on sale.  Machine pieced and quilted, with unstuffed piped binding, sewn by machine.

We're having a quiet Easter, but our two sons and families will be visiting next weekend.  They don't like to travel on a holiday weekend, so they drive to our home on Thursday night, taking Friday as a day off.  That way they have a nice visit before returning on Sunday.

Check out everyones' stash reports at Judy's blog, Patchwork Times.


  1. Nice quilts (and nice stash use). I, too, have a collection of cherry fabrics that I hope to get to someday... Happy Easter!

  2. I really like those quilts, especially Boxy Stars, Susan! Great job!
