Sunday Stash Report, January 8, 2012

Second report of the year and still nothing to show used...of course the better side of this is nothing to reveal as purchased!  I continue to work on the many projects that I've found myself started in of late.  Unfortunately I'm starting yet more.  I'm usually a one project at a time sewer and really do prefer it that way.  Just sometimes it happens and I'm feeling overwhelmed.  All will get done I tell myself...just not all at the same time.

Used this week: 0 yards
Used YTD: 0 yards
Purchased this week: 0 yards

Net Fabric Used in 2012: 0 yards

 So here is the one I'm most diligently trying to finish.  Komplikated!  A Bonnie Hunter design that appeared in the Quiltmaker Magazine issue Sep/Oct 08.  Mine is a true stash buster.  It will consume quite a bit of fabric (yes I've been saying this for awhile).  I'm getting ever closer to assembly.  I'm using my Bloc-Loc ruler to square up the last 23 pinwheel blocks right now.  Some of these will be assembled in both directions; note that some go one way and the other group spins counterclockwise.  I'm working on having somewhere close to the same amount of pinwheel color in each group.  I've got pressing to do on the 12-patch blocks, however no more to sew on these.  Next step ASSEMBLY on this delinquent 2011 UFO!

I've also got my #5 2012 UFO fabrics figured out.  Went through my stash and found this rich dark green that's plenty enough for the dark blue that Judy Laquidara uses in her Connect the Dots design.  This pattern is available on her FREE tab on her website.  I am determined to get this one going and done in January 2012!  Kontinuum is the name I've selected for this project.  I think the blue and the green/blue will look well as the tan and gold that's in Judy's quilt.  The various neutral batiks will be used as the background.  There are 4 fabrics in this project.  I will probably stop after Judy's 5th border using that color, which will be my green as the binding.

I'll be sharing where I am with the other started projects tomorrow.  Use up your stash!  See other reports via Patchwork Times.

I count fabric as used when I pull it out of my stash and cut it. Did you do any of that? Maybe you do have something to report.
Look forward to seeing your projects!

It sounds like you've been busy! I'm sure you'll have some numbers to report before you know it!
