Stash Report - 19 March 2017

This week I finished three panel quilts to donate through the quilt guild.  We've been asked for small (~36 x 45) quilts for families to use for playing with their babies on the floor.  I found fairy panels on the clearance rack at one of the local quilt shops.  They've been sitting on the cutting table for a month or so.  Tuesday we had snow with ice underneath, so I took the day as vacation and got all three quilted.  Saturday, I trimmed them, and found a piece of backing cut-off in the stash that worked for binding.  All three are now ready to turn in at the next guild meeting.

Today, I pulled a couple of pieces out of the bag of greens from my mother and pieced them together as a backing for one of the tumbler tops.  That's pressed and waiting to be loaded on the longarm.

Stash Report - 15 May 2016

A little added and some used this week.  "Out" is backing and binding for the tumbler quilt.  This one is now finished.  In was a couple of FQs just because.  They'll get cut today to add to the tumblers and strips.

I started Growing Up Odd from weddingdressblue yesterday.  I've been cutting 2" strips as I was cutting for the Film at Five quilt.  Those all got cut into 2" squares yesterday, and I've started piecing.  I'm planning to make this as a baby quilt or throw size quilt.  

Numbers for the week:
In this week:                                      0.5 yds
Out this week:                                   4.04 yds

In YTD:                                           16.79 yds
Out YTD:                                        51.69 yds
Net for 2016:                                   34.90 yds USED

I think this is the earliest I've actually used over 50 yds.  So far this year, I've finished 4 UFOs and finished 4 new quilts.

Stash Report - 8 May 2016

It's been almost a month since my last stash report.  It looks like this is becoming a pattern.

Since my last report, i've finished two quilt tops.  The first is a tumbler quilt - baby quilt size.  The second is Film at Five from the Wedding Dress Blue blog.  I like a lot of the tutorials from this blog, and will probably start Growing Up Odd next.  I've been cutting 1 1/2" strips from fat quarters as I cut the 2 1/2: strips for Film at Five.  I've also been cutting tumblers as I had the fat quarters out.

I did add fat quarters on a couple of trips during this month, as well - they've all been going into the strips and tumblers.

This afternoon, I'm aiming for piecing a back for the tumblers quilt and getting that loaded.

Added since last report:           3.5 yds
Used since last report:              8.2 yds

Added YTD:                           16.29 yds
Used YTD:                              47.65 yds
Net for 2016:                           31.35 yds USED

I'm liking where I'm going for the year.  I'm buying to freshen things up, but am using both what I buy and from stash.  I'm doing a better job of getting tops quilted as I make them, and I'm ending up with finished quilts.

I'm linking with Judy at Patchwork Times - go see how everyone else is doing with their stash.
