Yesterday I sewed a bit. With any luck today, and with Daisy's cooperation, I should be able to finish or almost finish a string block quilt top that I'm making for a memorial donation. About half of that fabric will be a bust for me.
Two things arrived this week from The Fat Quarter Shop. First was a tower of Judie Rothermel's Vicksburg. I'm going to be using some of that in a Civil War quilt that's a gift and that I need to start soon. The second package was the Moda U kit, Nostalgia. This quilt is going to be quick and fun to make. I plan on making it this summer. Just need to order the backing when the yardage comes out.
I think I poked some buttons this week - and I think they involved Glace! Pretty much all stashbusting bets are off for me until I satisfy my thirst for this fabric! (Wow, that was a dramatic!) I've been chomping at the bit for this since Fall Market!
So here are the ugly totals - since Judy dared us to post them!
Busted: 119.50 yards
Purchased: 308.375 yards
Net YTD: <188.875> yards
Am I kidding myself about stashbusting? At least I'm keeping records, something I've never done before. My goal is to end the year even ..... don't laugh! Everyone keeps laughing at me when I say that! I just keeping telling myself that I'm stashing for retirement!
