Stash Report Week 23

This is HARD! In my defense, I had four things to make for others, so there hasn't been a lot of busting going on. I'll finish up the last two this week. Then it's Katie bar the door! There will be fabric flying out of here so fast it'll make my head spin! Besides, I want to get everything cleared out for when the Sweet Treasures BOM starts. (See last post.) I love this quilt!

I did get the Prairie Paisley Patchwork Party finishing kit cut this week, and started working on it. So I can count as a bust 9.75 yards.

Before I get to the "rest of the story," remember all those yards I busted for backings at the first of the year? Well, four special quilts are off to Judy for some loving, and three that will probably be donation quilts went to a local quilter. That's seven -- SEVEN -- quilts off my UFO list! The bindings are already made and waiting for them. I love sewing down bindings, so I'll have plenty to do when those are returned to me.

One of those was Botanika, a Robyn Pandolph applique BOM. It was my very first applique and it's been sitting for six years. I'm real excited about getting it finished.

Now that I've suitably distracted myself and everyone else with all of the above .....

Some, but not all of this, was part of that 55 yard order from Week 22. I didn't pull out the backing yardage that's been put away. The rest of it, 44 yards, was this week. 'Nuf said.

Oh, a funny thing - when you're talking with your friends about fabric, be advised that "Mary Engelbreit" and "Merry & Bright" sound alike and can easily be confused! ROFLOL.

Year-to-Date Totals:

Busted: 190.5 yards
Purchased: 310.75 yards
Net YTD: <120.25> yards busted

Even though you've tempted me with your gorgeous fabrics and BOM's, I didn't poke one button. :)

I see you visit the Fat Quarter Shop quite a bit. Did you happen to notice the winner of their FQ give-away? That is my DIL! She was so excited to win. She's a brand new quilter.

I am in awe of how you work! GO girl!
