Stash Report - Week 12

I sure feel like I should've used more fabric than I did this week! When I stopped and thought about it I realized why. I've been working on T-shirt quilts and they use very little stash. I still feel good about the progress and will post pictures of the finished quilts later. Two of the tops are completely done and I'm adding borders to the last one. I hope to have them layered and ready to quilt by the end of today!

I bought extra striped fabric to use for the guild retreat quilt and that arrived this week; plus, I bought the backing fabric for that quilt. I don't feel guilty for buying the fabric though because I know it'll get used soon and show up as a "used fabric" in a near-future report.

Even though I have grandiose ideas, I can't imagine that I'll have much success using fabric this next week because my 2-year old granddaughter is here. It's a good trade-off!

Here's the report:
Fabric Used This Week: 2.0 yards

Fabric Used to Date: 87.041 yards

Fabric Added This Week: 7.00 yards

Fabric Added to Date: 52.5 yards

Net Fabric Used for 2010: 34.541yards

I agree with you: very often it feels like you are using soo mcuh, but it doesn't really come true. Bottomline: it is much easier & faster to buy (online with a click or in store). Your numbers look great and every bit counts!
