Sunday Stash Report, March 13, 2011

Excuse me, sorry for the big yawn. Don't know about you but this loosing an hour really messes up body clocks. The cats can't figure out when to start bugging me for breakfast! Still dark out there, but I won't complain when it's still daylight at 7pm! Gives me ample time to take in my daily exercise instead of rushing like the dickens home to change clothes and be out walking that standard time during the winter months creates.


I have finished Krimson Khat. I am considering entering this quilt in the 30th Annual San Diego Quilt Show that takes place September 8 - 10. Three quilts can be entered into the show. Deadline for entries is June 12. One year I entered quilts and did not make it into the show because by the time they received my entry the display areas were already full. I did submit my three entries a bit closer to the deadline so I know not to let that happen again.

Like any other quilter who had a Shop Hop in their area my stash grew a bit from the event. Visiting 16 shops in four days is difficult to resist temptation. Fortunately this week's report has me reporting three of the four days since Day 1 was reported last week. Hey stretching out the Shop Hop's purchases doesn't make me feel quite so guilty! Well I do feel guilty, but it doesn't look as bad when reporting :). So for this past week my stats:

Used this week: 0 yards
Used YTD: 64.5 yards
Purchased this week: 3 yards
Purchased YTD: 17 yards
Net Fabric Used in 2011: 41.25 yards

This quilt is very worthy of being shared with others and entering into the show will certainly be appreciated. Good job on your purchases. Not bad at all. Judy C

Oh my, I love that quilt. Please do enter it in the San Diego Show. I'll be coming down from the desert to see that show and I'll be looking for it. Good job on restraining yourself during the shop hop. Don't think I could have managed that well.

That is one of my favorite blocks-you made it look so rich and contemporary. I think you should enter it in the show for others to enjoy.

I went to one shop that was having a fat quarter blowout sale and ended up with 15.5 yards of fabric!!!

I Love that quilt! It has to go in to the show! I am with you, love the longer days and that it is not dark when I get off work.
