Design Wall Monday 01/05/15


I was finally able to sew a little on Sunday.  I've had a terrible head cold that I can't seem to shake, so I wasn't able to sew over the holiday break as much as I wanted.  In fact, I'm terribly behind for my quilting class, which starts very soon.  I'll need to get creative in order to have projects to present.  I did manage to get out of the house over the weekend.  I needed to get outside, so I decided to go to a quilt shop!  Which brings me to the stash report...  2014 was a crazy year for me - lots going on, including moving to a new city.  All of my fabric got packed up, and I ended up giving away quite a bit that I knew I would never use.  I never tallied up how much I got rid of, and so my stash busting reports went by the wayside.  Of course, that also meant that I did not tally up how much got added!  Now it's a new year and I'm back on the stash busting bandwagon.  I bought two one-yard cuts of blue fabrics and one half-yard piece of the print shown below. 

So that means I've added 2.50 yards of fabric, but I am also calculating about 2.75 yards used in the quilt top above.  I'll be reporting this weekly, if there is any activity.  If I haven't used or added any fabric in a given week, I won't bother to post a report.

Fabric added this week:  2.50 yards
Fabric added this year:  2.50 yards

Fabric used this week:  2.75 yards
Fabric used this year:  2.75 yards

Total net usage:  0.25 yards used!

Hopefully you are all well and ready to go. I love the blue fabrics you got.

Feeling bad really puts the brakes on everything doesn't it? I hope you feel better soon. Sounds like you are going to make some things quickly for a class? I hope you post them; I'm always up for quick projects. I really like your red, white, and blue quilt too.
