Stash Report 2011 - Week 2

Starting off the year on a positive note!

This week I busted the Patchwork Santa, 2.5 yards, and I sent 3 yards to a friend.

Then I decided to dig through some older quilt kits and found this one - "3 Sisters in Rome"!

The fabric is Roman Holiday by 3 Sisters and the Sticks 'N Stones pattern by Kansas Troubles Quilters. This was kitted by the Fat Quarter Shop three, maybe four years ago? I think it's seasoned quite well and is ready to get sewn up! Lordy, I love my stash!!

I'm almost through cutting it out, so it's going on the stash report - 7.15 yards. I want to finish cutting it this morning and move right on to sewing on it! It's a real easy pattern and will be fun to sew. I'll count the backing later when that's pieced and ready to go to the quilter.

I currently have four quilts at my local quilter. All of them just need overall quilting, but it'll be good to get those back and the binding sewn on. I love hand stitching bindings, so something to look forward to.

I talked to my great niece and nephew who received their quilts this week. They're such adorable children and loved their quilts. Makes my heart sing to know that!

2011 Totals:

Busted: 12.65 yards
Purchased: 0 yards
Net YTD: 22.65 yards busted :)

So far so good!

It's good to know that you are getting your mojo back. I love 3 Sisters fabrics so I'm looking forward to seeing your quilt top made up.

Most people hate sewing the bindings down but it is relaxing to do them and such a wonderful feeling knowing the quilt is completed.

Can't wait to see your quilts when you get them back from the quilters.

It is great that you are both getting stuff done from your stash....AND not buying anything new!!! ;-D And I agree that binding is fun...very relaxing!!

I'm really looking forward to coming back here and seeing your Roman Holiday made up! I love that line and am kicking myself for not splurging back then.

That's a great looking quilt! I'm sure you will enjoy sewing it up. :)

And woo hoo on moving in the right direction on your reporting! :)

I have a quilt kit too with Roman Holiday that I had in my hand this week. But it has lots of triangles and careful piecing and I decided i need something more along the lines of Take Five!

So can you keep up the big goose egg with Road right around the corner (both in time and from you?)

Ginny said...

You are a very generous person. That is a great quality.

Gretchen said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Roman Holiday line! Can't wait to see your completed quilt.

I am so happy to see your sewing!!!
you picked a project and got going, yeah!!!
Penny seems to like what you chose too!
how cute :)
I think I may join you this year and post my purchases and what I use I just would love to see the numbers at the end of the year. since I am making little quilts right now wonder how high numbers would ever get!
imagine if we took an inventory of our fabric...nope not even going there, will you?

You go Vicky! I think the best part of the quilt process is the hand sewing of the binding at the end. Peaceful.
