Stashbusting 2012 - Week 42

Its been a few weeks since I posted for stash busting, not because I haven't been sewing, but because I wasn't really using any stash.

I did finish up a client's quilt this week.   I posted more pictures here.


I also stopped at my local quilt shop and bought fabrics for another baby quilt for a baby boy.  It was fun picking out the fabrics to make it "boyish".


I also finished up a little quilt top I was working on the past day or two.  It came together really quickly.  I'm not sure if I'm going to quilt it right away or wait a little bit.


So with this last top completed, I did use a little bit of stash this week.  The binding is also ready to go, but I'll have to still pick out some backing material.

Here are my numbers:

Added This Week:       5.0 yards
Added Year to Date:    23.54 yards
Used This Week:          2.06 yards
Used Year to Date:       23.2 yards
Net Year to Date:         0.35 yards

I'm just a smidge in the hole now after buying 5 yards, but I'll use that up fairly soon and once I pick out some backing material, I'll definitely be back in the positive.

Check out how everyone else is doing this week over on Judy's blog.

Happy Crafting!

  1. The "boy" fabrics you pick out are so fun, they will certainly make a great quilt. Love the border on the Snails Trail - going to have to keep that in mind, it would look good on a scrappy quit. I like that your blocks, on your little quilt, are oblong, an unexpected surprise.

    Enjoy your day.

  2. Your baby quilt is so cute. Love the blues and crispness of the colors. Aren't those small quilts fun to make. I like them because it gives you a sense of completing something and it is finished before you know it.
