Stash Report February 20, 2011

Have you seen the new Keepsake Quilting Catalog?  On page 41 are some yummy Double Pinks that I would love to purchase for the Dear Jane Quilt that I will be making in Pinks and Chocolate Browns. But I am gong to restrain myself and try to use up what I currently have first.

This week I sent 18.5 yards of fabric from my stash to my Mom. She and a group of ladies are making quilts for school children in Africa. So even though I did not personally use it, the fabric is getting used up for a great cause.



Used this week: 18.5
Used YTD: 29.0
Purchased this week: 0 yards
Purchased YTD: 9.25
Net Fabric Used in 2011: 20.25

Check out more Stash Reports at Patchwork Times!  Have a great week!

  1. Giving fabric for others to use is a great way to use your stash. Using the fabric is the goal so by giving it to others you ARE achieving your goal.

  4. great way to trim you stash--you sent fabric you probably don't need, and they get some to use--a win-win deal! Stash busting has taught me only to buy fabric I will use now. Lots easier to plan quilts than it is to sew them. Hold out on purchases until you're ready to start.
