Sunday Stash Report, May 1, 2011

The first day of May...hard to believe we are into the fifth month of 2011 already.  Pretty soon we'll be counting down days until Christmas!  Oh, say it's not so...

I have several completions to show you today.  First up is Karousel the cute baby shower gift made for my Grand Niece that will be born mid June.  Not sure if you have a month when every family member it seems is having a birthday to celebrate, but June is the one for mine.  If timing for Leah's first born is as the doctors' are forecasting we'll have three birthdays on the same day.  Karousel was put in the mail Friday to reach it's destination in Virginia next Saturday.  Karousel is a pattern called Sea Horses from Quiltmaker Magazine All Time Favorites Spring 2002 Issue.

Next is Karibbean.  I finished the binding on this quilt called Blue Moon by Karen Montgomery Friday.  It is a big one finishing 81" x 96".  The quilting pattern called Bottle Brush is fabulous; so I've included a photo of it to see too.
I have a bit to report as purchased, but it's only because my stash failed me!  I needed something for the binding of 2009 Kruisin Kwilt and a couple more light green batiks for the next UFO I'll be tackling (will be called Komfort Kove).  It's a Theresa Eisinger design called Pinwheel Cove brought to us by Quiltmaker Jul/Aug 2010 Issue.  All of my finishes have already been counted so nothing to claim as used.  Maybe next week...  Now for the stash calculations this 18th week of 2011.

Used this week: 0 yards
Used YTD: 104.25 yards
Purchased this week: 2 yards
Purchased YTD: 26.5 yards
Net Fabric Used in 2011: 77.75 yards

Wow you are really using up that stash and finishing beautiful quilts. The seahorses are just so cute! Karibbean is lovely. The quilting looks really nice.
Can't wait to see what you finish next.

Beautiful quilts! Good stash busting this year, two thirds of the way to 100 yards out!

Just beautiful!! I, also, made the seahorse quilt many years ago. I would like to make the Cat Tales quilt, too. I only need to see a picture. (I don't have the magazine.) Can you help me out? ~karen
