Sunday Stash Report

The good news this week is I did get some sewing in.  Unfortunately, I can't count a whole lot of it out because I didn't finish anything, but progress was made.  I used some stash for the binding of a table runner, made more butterfly blocks, and did a little quilting on my Kaleidoscope.   

The bad news, at least for the stash report it's bad, I bought some fabric.  Well, a lot of fabric I guess.  Every year Pam from Del Ray Fabrics has a tent sale in her backyard and she always invites the DC Modern Quilt Guild.  Last year I didn't go because I was hugely pregnant and exhausted.  This year I didn't want to miss it, and I'm glad I didn't!!

I had told myself when this line came out that I would have to pick a few prints that I really wanted, but I wasn't going to buy the whole line, way too expensive.  As soon as I walked into the tent sale I saw this bundle, and decided to just see how much she wanted for it.  It was marked down to more than 50% off of the cheapest price I had found online.  Needless to say, I cradled it in my arms like a little baby the whole time I browsed.  It was coming home with me!  I also picked up a few fat quarters of Children at Play by Sarah Jane. 

So cute!  Perfect little boy fabric.  Lucky me, I have two of them!

Thanks Pam!  You made my day!

I really can't speak highly enough of Del Ray Fabrics.  Not only does she have a great selection, but she is so incredibly generous.  She donated a ton of beautiful fabrics to the 100 Quilts for Kids drive.  If you are on the lookout for a new online fabric source, please look them up.

Onto the numbers:

Used this week: 0.25 yards
Used YTD: 34.75 yards
Added this week: 9.75 yards
Added YTD: 137.75 yards
Net Added YTD: 103 yards

My goal this week is to finish up my Kaleidoscope quilt and make more butterfly blocks.

We'll see how I do!

To see what everyone else is up, go to Judy's.

What a deal!!! Sometimes, you just have to buy it. Sounds like your money is supporting a valuable small business.

What a steal!! I love those fabrics. I found you via the FNSI link. Nice to meet you. I'm your new follower. :o) I have one little boy and can't resist a good "boys" fabric either!
