Stash Report – April 18, 2010

Wow, I so can’t believe it is the middle of April!

Life has been busy so the computer has been the last thing I have been able to get to lately, so pardon the scarce posts……I didn’t even have time to do a stash report last week. But, last week was an easy one – nothing, nada, no change from the week before.

This week though, I ordered some backing material for my Civil War Tribute quilt. I found some really cool backing at the Fat Quarter Shop and just had to get it before they ran out. This is 108″ wide fabric so I don’t even have to piece it! YAY! It also was a great bargain as the price at $12 per yard was quite a bit cheaper than if I had bought standard 42″ wide fabric.

Here is the fabric I bought along with the link to the site

And since I only got 4 1/2 yards, that is all I have to count in my stash report even though it is 108″ wide!

Here is the version that I REALLY liked, but it was available only in the 42″ width, and I just was NOT going to go there!

So here are my stats for the last two weeks –

Used the last two weeks:  0 yards
Used this year:  84.81 yards
Added the last two weeks:   4.5 yards
Added this year:   37.71 yards
Net used for 2010:  47.1 yards from stash

Still pretty well…at least I am still happy with it. To check out how everyone else is doing, hop on over to Judy’s blog!

  1. Great fabric buy and with it being 108″ instead of only the 42″, I think you picked the best choice. Nice going and your numbers showing the usage of your stash is great. Jane

  2. That is lovely and the brown is my favorite. I am working on the Civil War Dairy quilt but I saw the Tribute quilt at the quilt shop. It is very pretty.
