The last week or two I've been slowly making progress on some Winding Ways blocks. Here's where I was 2 weeks ago:
And now... All 12 blocks are made. Nine will stay as a small wall-hanging type quilt. The other three (at the top) are destined to become a table runner.
From just those blocks, I was able to use just over 1.5 yards of fabric.
The downside over the past two weeks....I bought fabric... and lots of it. To my defense, Connecting Threads had a sale and I had a gift certificate to the store AND I bought fabric for the next large wall hanging (a mariner's compass style quilt). I also bought backing material for my Bento Box quilt top that is waiting to be quilted.
Here's the connecting threads fabric (pre-washing):
Here's the backing fabric...and a cameo by the kitty. :-)
And here's the fabric for the Mariner's compass quilt. Its a lot of paper-piecing so I bought more than I needed, but what's a little stash building here and there. ;-)
I also spent some time yesterday organizing my fabric and bookshelf. Looks nice and pretty all organized...I wonder how long it will stay that way.
So here are my stash numbers:
Added This Week: 41.80 yards
Added Year to Date: 47.65 yards
Used This Week: 1.59 yards
Used Year to Date: 16.44 yards
Net Year to Date: 31.22 yards
I'm definitely back in the red now with the backing and extra fabrics that I bought. I doubt I'll hit neutral again by the end of the year, but maybe I will get lucky.
