Stash Report

Well, I finished four quilts this week! Granted they were just tied, but I did use lots of fabric for backing. Not only did I do that, but I got rid of 3 boxes of fabric to the Lutherans to use for LWR quilts. I have so much fabric, I just need to get rid of it. At this point in time any one that will take it and use it for charity can have the old, unloved stuff that I no longer want. As long as they come to my house and pick it up. Its amazing how much fabric one can amass. And no I didn't measure it all, I weighed one yard, then weighed the rest of the fabric in the piles. Quick and easy! Though 24 yards were used for the backs of those four quilts.

I am very happy that I am getting very close to breaking even, I might have to clean more fabric out!

So here are my totals for this week.

Purchases this week 0.0 yds
Purchases YTD: 256.5 yards

Used this week: 90.0 yards
Used YTD: 187.5 yards

Running Total 69.0 yards in the red


  1. ROFL--Oh Jay--I will help reduce your stash at the Fremont sew in! Weighing your yardage--I can really chuckle at that. My backings are really becoming quite pieced!

  2. I can completely relate. I cleared out quite a bit of fabric last year by donating to the charity program at my guild; but I still have so much left over.

    And this week I've not touched a thing!! Need to get off the computer and get busy like you have been.

  3. You will be blessed for donating so much fabric for charity quilts. So many older folks just aren't able to purchase fabric and the fabric you donated will keep them busy for a long time. Thanks for setting such a good example for the rest of us.

  4. Yup, I'll be there to help bust your stash a bit more too, weather permitting!
