Stash Report - Weeks 5-7

Although I've neglected to report, I have been keeping a record of my ins and outs of fabric. I'm happy to say that all of what I bought when I was on retreat at the end of January was purchased with a specific project in mind and that I've completed the top to one of those projects and am ready to add the borders to the another one. I have backing for both of those quilts as well as the binding.WooHoo!

I've counted all the fabric as purhases, but not all as used yet. When I buy new fabrics for a specific quilt, I count all fabric in at the time of purchase.  But, I don't count them out until the top is complete. And, I don't count the backing and binding out until that is done. That's kind of an incentive to not have tops sitting around waiting to be quilted. I already have a bunch of those from previous years, so I really don't need to be adding more! I am working hard at finishing a UFO between starting a new project, but it really is a challenge for me. There are soooooo many wonderful quilts that I see that I want to make! Maybe I should avoid looking at the Design Wall Monday posts or Pinterst. NOT!!!

Here's the report:

I don't have the courage to add the extra information that you do. Knowing how many UFOs I actually have would depress me. LOL
