Stash Report Week 12

I'm in a holding pattern. Buying and busting at about the same speed.

I had some flannel purchased last year to make a little boy's quilt. His mother (who doesn't understand quilting dynamics at all) said that the baby boy would be in the same room as his older brother in a bit, so perhaps matching quilts. I honestly don't know if I can make the exact quilt twice. Anyway ... so this flannel was just sitting there. I really don't like working with flannel. It's kinda like nails on a chalkboard to me. I made a freebie offer to my quilting group, and there was a taker. I feel sort of cheating by listing it as a bust, but it's out of my stash room. 11.5 yards busted.

No purchases this week, but I do have yardage of Prairie Paisley heading my way from The Fat Quarter Shop. This is my favorite line in the whole world. Really. No, no, REALLY! The purchase will be reported next week when it lands on my doorstep.

I'm almost finished with the embroidery on All Things Christmas and should be able to assemble the body next week. The borders and backing will be counted as a bust once I get those done.

Year-to-Date Totals:

Busted: 134.0 yards
Purchased: 97.5 yards
Net YTD: 36.5 yards busted!

The Prairie Paisley is speaking to me too! One of our local shop owners even e-mailed me that it was in her shop :) I'm wanting to make a patriotic quilt. What are your plans for this ine?

Have a fabulous Easter! My husband is smoking chickens. We have Savoy's rice dressing mix defrosting. One of my Louisiana favorites.

Take care,
Becky in Georgia

Maybe making 2 different quilts that have some of the same fabrics in them?
I did that with a set of sisters in Girl Scouts. One had pink and one had purple accents.
