Sunday Stash Report, November 10, 2013

I have another change to my Stash Report this week.  It is an add, but one that was necessary to complete Kookaburra.  There was enough of the right fabric in my stash to fulfill the inner border requirement not enough for the outer border.  Believe me I really tried.  Finding blacks that will work with a 30s feel isn't that easy.  A solid black Kona cotton is what I had for the inner border.  The more solid fabric above is what I will use for the outer border.  I have already put the fabric to use.  I'm busy making chevrons for the zigzag pieced border.
Kookaburra Zigzag Border
 There is one row of zigzag around the quilt.  That second row you see is just the start of the next row.  There is a solid black solid piece to match the inside part of the zigzag that will be sewn between the center and the pieced border.  Then a single piece outer border using that nearly solid will be the final addition that matches the outside part of the zigzag.  Binding will be from the solid black.  I'm on course to having Kookaburra done this week.

Oh and that black and white print is to add to my stash right now without a project in mind.  I like the design of the print...don't you?

So for this week here are my stats:

Used this week:  0 yards
Used YTD:  313.25 yards
Purchased this week:  4 yards
Purchased YTD:  106.25 yards
Net Fabric Used in 2013:  207 yards
Last week I mentioned all the binding projects I had in queue.  I have the binding, sleeve, and label on the other three (Kamp Kastles, Koda's Keeper, and Kloudburst), just need something good to watch on TV!

Several others are working their stash...see what's going on with them at Patchwork Times.
