Stop the presses .... I piddled around with my stash yesterday! Yes, I did! I have to make one block for a joint gift quilt, and I decided to dig into my Robyn Pandolph stash. It's been a while since I've done that. Some pretty fabrics up in that cabinet.
Anyway, when I opened up this piece, I found that I had obviously used it once before on applique! There was a hunk cut out of it! I had to laugh. Most folks might have just cut a strip off to use. No, I had to leave the piece intact and just cut what I needed. Now there are two hunks missing from this yardage. At this rate, I'll probably still be cutting hunks out of it at The Home!
And I had some good yardage use yesterday. 44.5 yards busted for charity quilts! Nothing incoming, but I do have an order on its way from the Fat Quarter Shop. A small kit for a child's quilt with backing, and I forget what else. Not too much damage done, I don't think. Wait, maybe there are two orders winging their way to me. Uh oh uh oh uh oh...
Anyway, here are the totals.
Busted: 343.25 yards
Purchased: 372.055 yards
Net YTD: (28.805) yards busted :(
Last year at Labor Day I was 327.625 yards in the red. Looking good, Vic!!!
Oh, speaking of the Fat Quarter Shop, check out this new book, A Path to the Civil War. I can't wait to get my hands on it!!!!!
