Stashbusting 2014 - Week 1

Its another new year for stash busting!  I ended 2013 in fairly decent shape and starting out 2014 in the black.  :c)

Most of my stash used this week is for the Mariner's Compass wall hanging.  I was able to get the large setting triangles cut, pressed and sewn onto the center section.  In order to make the triangles, I had to cut two squares at 26.25" and then cut that along the diagonal.  Its not an easy task to cut something that is larger than your ruler!

The other part of my used stash is actually for a BOM that I recently found on Morning Glory Designs.  Its a free BOM, but you have to download each block during the month that it is up.  If you miss a month, you'll have to purchase it from the site.  This is what the BOM will look like per the pattern.  Looks pretty fun!

I prepped the first block and glue basted the pieces in place.  We'll see if I can keep up at doing a block a month. :c)

So here are my stash numbers:

Added This Week:       0 yards
Added Year to Date:    0 yards
Used This Week:          1.58 yards
Used Year to Date:       1.58 yards
Net Year to Date:         1.58 yards

Go on over to Judy's blog to see how others are doing.

Happy Crafting!
