Welcome to another installment of Melanie's stash enhancement report! What can I say, I really love fabric and when I see a good deal it is oh so hard to pass it up!
I think another strategy I will have to use in order to use my stash instead of buying new, is to stop receiving emails about sales. They are just way too tempting!
This week I bought a fat quarter bundle of the entire Sherbet Pips line and I just love it!
As I was showing my husband the design from Moda Bake Shop I wanted to use to make his mother's quilt, he saw another pattern that he thought would be better. I completely agreed with him, so I supplemented what I had already purchased to make this quilt instead. I think this design will be perfect for Charlevoix!
Of course since I really love "Hexagon Park" by the very talented Lynne I decided to use it to make a Christmas quilt from the new line "Flurry" by Kate Spain.
On the sewing front I am still plugging away on my Super Nova quilt. It is taking longer than I'd hoped to complete, but I think I am going to love it!
All right enough stalling, here are my numbers:
Used this week: 0
Used YTD: 9 yards
Added this week: 20.5 yards
Added YTD: 76 yards
Net Used:-67 yards.
Yikes, time to get busy!
In an effort to use all of this beautiful fabric instead of just buying it, I am challenging myself to not add anything to the stash until the quilt show in June. I know that really isn't that long of a time, but I have to be realistic. I don't think I can go to the quilt show and not buy fabric.
To see how everyone else is doing check out Judy's blog.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
