Stash Busting 2011 - Week 20
I haven't posted about Stashbusting lately because there's been nothing-in and nothing-out. But I must confess some purchases! The three fat quarters above were purchased at a Sew Many Quilts, a quilt shop in the town where my sister lives. I also got a few pieces for my Dear Jane quilt, but I haven't been adding those to the official stash because they are dedicated to that project. The three above just spoke to me for some reason - especially the orange one on the right. My bigger purchase is actually going to help me bust my stash (that's my story and I'm sticking to it!). I bought two bolts of fabric from The Fat Quarter Shop recently. I bought a bolt of solid white and a bolt of solid black. They have really good deals on their Moda and Robert Kaufmann solids, and I was able to combine that with a coupon and was very pleased with what I ended up paying. The way I figure it, now that I have these fabrics on hand, I won't have to go out and buy background fabrics whenever I want to make a quilt. I have plenty of stash, but it is mostly smaller pieces - not much yardage. Let's see how long I can go now without buying anything (except for the DJ quilt). It's a personal challenge!!
Fabric in this week: 30.75 yards
Fabric out this week: 0.00 yards
