Sunday Stash Report

Frolic is finally finished, and is also one of my UFO's for the year. 

It is a pretty big quilt at 85x85, and made with almost all fabrics from my stash. I even used up the extra pieces to make a few blocks to put on the back. I was a bit worried about the triangle borders fitting, there was a lot of bias in the quilt, but I was pleasantly suprised when it all went together pretty smoothly. One of the keys was to stay stitch the outer edges before putting on the inner border and triangle borders. It really helped to keep the edges from stretching.

Extra blocks

There were a lot of extra pieces left over, so I used up most in the blocks above. They will be part of my scrappy backing of 10" squares. Using up the Stash!

Purchased this week at Modern Quilts in Phoenix (a great store if you are ever in the area) was a navy blue for binding the Dear Jane Quilt, and a couple of greys for a future project.

Here are the updated numbers:

Used this week: 21 yards
Used YTD:  37.0 yards.
Purchased this week: 3 yards
Purchased YTD:  24.5 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD:  12.5 yards.

Finally in the black for the year! Check back to see what is on my design wall for the week.
