Stashbusting 2013 - Week 53

I'm a day late in posting for Judy's final Stashbusting post for the year, but I wanted to make sure I had a summary of 2013.

I actually did alright in 2013 and most of my fabric purchases were for specific projects, which I just haven't finished yet.  I did purchase and finish the Lone Star Wall hanging this year.  As usual, I purchased more fabric than I needed, but I wasn't going to risk running out.  The same goes with the Mariner's Compass wall hanging I'm doing now.

Here's the latest progress on the quilt.  I took the photo on the angle since that center section will be on-point in the final quilt...for now its just easier to put it up square on my design wall.

So here are my stash numbers for the end of 2013.

Added This Week:       0 yards
Added Year to Date:    47.65 yards
Used This Week:          4.79 yards
Used Year to Date:       25.64 yards
Net Year to Date:         22.01 yards
I ended up with more fabric purchased than used this year, but the 22 yards extra actually go mostly to the Mariner's Compass quilt.  I hope to at least finish the top in early 2014.  The quilting will take a while as I will need to think about how I want to quilt the open spaces in the design.

Happy Crafting!

  1. good going on your stash - I have accumulated a lot this year and I wasn't going to buy much - but I try to think of it as saving money because all or most of it was purchased on sale and as prices keep going up I am saving money now that we are in our retirement I won't be buying fabric as often. I do have enough now to keep me going for some time to come.
