Sunday Stash Report, October 28, 2012


Let me start with my final 2012 UFO completed.  I'm two months ahead of the challenge.  Being ahead let's me get a few others done before 2013 challenges commence!  Knoted is a Judy Laquidara design FREE on her website called Note to Self.  Knoted has that silent "K" when pronounced.  I stopped mine after the third border with the plan to bind it in the dark black/brown which would have been the next border following Judy's design.  Although I like how I can use more stash with a larger project I prefer something a bit smaller.  Knoted finishes 67 1/2" x 80".

Kooky Kins
I finished Kooky Kins this past Monday.  Kooky Kins is a Buggy Barn design called Crazy Jacks.  It can be found in their book Frightfully Crazy.  Kooky Kins is also a 2012 UFO that has yet to be selected.

A third finish this week is Lori Smith's design that I'll call 4 Stars from her Quilt Squares #6 pattern.  This block is October's Quilt Square Quilt Along block selected by Jo's Country Junction.  I'd make these ahead too but it isn't known which design is next until the first of each month.  I'll claim yardage on all 12 blocks that I do in 2012 when I put the project together into a sampler quilt around the first of 2013.

I did add a bit to my stash this week; purchasing fabrics for my Road to California Mystery class that I'll be taking in January 2013 and eight 1/2 yard pieces for a 2013 UFO that I've got on my radar where I will need a bunch of neutrals.  These fabrics won't collect dust!  I am quite pleased with my numbers this week!

Used this week: 26.25 yards
Used YTD: 247.75 yards
Purchased this week: 18.75 yards
Purchased YTD: 125.75 yards
Net Fabric Used in 2012: 122 yards

Hope you have time to create this week!

Didn't you just barely start Knoted? I can't believe how quickly you pull off finishes! It looks great. And Kooky Kins just makes me smile--so cute.
As usual, your little quilt square looks great.

Great numbers. It is good to plan for quilts we want to make in the next few months, much easier to purchase a bit here and there. Knoted is the perfect size. I didn't make that one as I was worried that all my black strips wouldn't match up - your quilt looks perfect. Thanks for sharing.
