Stash Report - Week 20

I got a bit more done on my Hunter's Star this week so the inside is done. I made some changes due to "diminishing fabric on hand" and it's not as big as I wanted, but that's ok. I'm ready to add borders, but I have to do some playing around to see how to use the fabric most efficiently. If I'd recently bought the fabric I could probably just get more, but since this fabric has been in my stash for at least six years, that's not going to happen.

Actually, when I decided to make this quilt, I was going to use this fabric, then I wasn't going to. I even went shopping for new fabric; but while I was shopping, I decided to use what I had and hope for the best. I was afraid the dark blue in my stash had too much "direction" in it, but when I I couldn't find a blue to play well with the light blue I had and I would have to buy ALL new fabric...... Well, I just didn't want to spend the money. :-)

Long story short, I like the fabrics I'm using and even though it'll be a bit smaller than I'd like, all is good!

Here's the report:
Fabric Added This Week: 0.00 yards
Fabric Added to Date: 76.50 yards

Fabric Used to Date: 151.625 yards
Net Fabric Used for 2011: 75.125 yards

I am sure it will turn out great! Why don't you post a picture of your missing fabric on your blog, maybe somebody has it in her/ his stash and doesn't mind to do a fabric exchange! I would if I had it!

I would post a picture looking for the fabric if I didn't REALLY want to get this quilt done soon. What the heck, I think I'll post a picture tomorrow during Design Wall Monday and not work on the until the end of the week. Thanks for the suggestion Barb! Cross your fingers.
