Sunday Stash Report, December 29, 2013

Here we are another year of moving our stash...sometimes in and hopefully much more out!  I am certainly happy with my year of stash movement.  Again this year I am on the upswing with more out than in.  Don't think it would be possible to move so much stash around if it were not for UFO Challenges.  I challenge myself in a couple of ways; I seek out those projects that just need to finish or look for patterns I have been wanting to make for a long time and always try to keep to my stash to get everything done.

My last purchase of 2013 was at Rosie's Calico Cupboard this week.  I tried to find something to work for the back of Kingsford Kove (December's UFO) from my stash without luck.  I thought sure something would work, but instead brought the piece of gray home.  I picked up the last fabrics needed for Kilowatts.  (Kilowatts was made a bit larger than a standard queen so there was lots of yardage needed to make it.)  The white for the inner border and back, the black print for the outer border, and the solid black for the binding.  The 30's paisley print will be for the sleeve of Kookaburra.  I did finish Kilowatts so I conclude with yardage in both the used and the purchased categories.  

I am looking forward to using more stash in 2014.  The stats go back to zeros!  Hope you had the year you wanted using up your stash.

Used this week:   36.5 yards
Used YTD:  377.25 yards
Purchased this week:  17 yards
Purchased YTD:  142.25 yards
Net Fabric Used in 2013:  235 yards

I enjoy the names you give your quilts. Great numbers for the year. It is always fun to start the new year with zero in and zero out.
Happy New Year

Wow! You really moved that fabric off the shelves this year :*) I am always amazed at how quickly your quilts go from cutting to finished!!!

Holy Guacamole! you used a fabulous amount of stash - I'm tired just looking at that number. You are the quilting dynamo! Congrats!!

Dar said...

You certainly did use a lot of fabric this year,m but have so many nice things to show for it too. I hope 2014 is even better. I know I'm trying for better usage next year. Happy New Year.

Your numbers are impressive, Sandi, as are the quilts you made that created those numbers!

You had a great year of stash busting! Congrats.

Since my year wasn't so great on the busting end of things, I'm looking forward to resetting my numbers for both the in and out to zero.
