Welcome to 2010 stashbusting efforts. I did ok last year….I ended using 1/2 yard (yes your reading right, a lousy 1/2 yard) more than I purchased. I was hoping to do better but sometimes those fabric stores just call my name…..Karen…..buy me….so this year I’m not going to listen to the voice of my wicked twin sister, I’m tired of her leading me astray.
Since I have not had a sewing day all to myself for quite awhile, I took one yesterday and I finished this top….its called “checkerboard” ….it was orginally published in some magazine several years back (if anyone knows which magazine please share with me)…..this quilt used all stash……no new fabric was purchased for this quilt!!!! I’m not sure if I’m going to leave it like this or if I’m going to add a couple of borders…..I’m going to leave it hang this week and look at it and decide from there.
So here’s my first report of the year
Fabric used this week 1.25 yards
Fabric purchased this week NONE
Net fabric used 1.25 yards
This quilt did use a total of 7 yards and if I add borders it will burn even more stash.
Later………Mrs. I promise to do better this year in the stash using efforts.
