I actually bought quite a bit last Friday while sewing in a quilt shop (never a good thing to do unless you actually NEED to find certain fabric! LOL). Fortunately, all but two yards are earmarked for specific projects so I only have two yards coming in.
This photo shows the Christmas fabric I bought that was 30% off. Can’t beat that deal! The two with blue background will go on the back of a Christmas quilt I am finally in the process of trying to finish up….it will be one UFO down! YAY!
The red poinsettia fabric is the only piece I bought that was not earmarked for a specific project. I have no excuse other than I just fell in love with it, but it is only 2 yards (I will probably regret that I didn’t get more!)
These fabrics are all for specific quilts. The first stack is for Munchie’s Princess quilt that I hope to have done around Christmas. The main part of the quilt is a Disney Princess panel that I took with me to the quilt shop. I needed inspiration on how to fill space between panels. I already have some pink Fairy Frost and a small amount of purple Fairy Frost. I hope these take care of the whole quilt! There are 3 and 1/2 yards of fabric in that pile.
The brown fabric is for the back of my 2009 First Saturday quilt shown here (scroll down a little). There wasn’t quite enough, only 8 and 1/4 yards, for the whole back, so I will have to do some creative piecing to make it work, but I think it will be gorgeous!
The next stack of fabric is for my brother and his new wife. I have had the pattern in mind for quite some time for a quilt for their couch, but I had not yet found the fabrics I wanted to use. I just happened to find some at the quilt shop that inspired me, so that quilt will be in the works after the first of the year. There are 9 and 1/2 yards in that pile.
So, despite the fact that I bought 27 and 1/4 yards of fabric, only 2 yards count against my stash report. Here it is –
- Used since last report: 0 yards
- Used this year: 110.06 yards
- Added since last report: 2 yards
- Added this year: 50.46 yards
- Net used for 2010: 59.6 yards from stash
So go on over to Judy’s Patchwork Times and see how everyone else did during one of the major shopping weeks of the year!
