Sunday Stash Report, March 15, 2015

A bit of stash enhancement today.  I have a use for it with one of my UFOs this year.  A nice wide backing fabric from Sew Batik.  If you've not heard of them you should.  They are at most major quilt shows and some long arm quilters sell their line.  Of course you can always go to their website to purchase.  They have a very large variety of nice batiks; both 45" and 120" wide. 

So I mentioned Friday that I needed more 4-patches...  Today I sewed a bunch of them.  What you see will get me through six blocks.  That leaves four more blocks worth to finish the center of the top and then I have the pieced border to make for.  I will be working on 4-patches for several days to come =^.^=

 These are what is left of the HSTs in blue/white and black/yellow to trim up.  I will be changing my blade and using my trusty 2 1/2" Bloc-Loc ruler to tackle them.

My project as today starts.  I hope to get done with a few more blocks while doing the laundry.  I just may finish Korners this month!  Sure would be nice to be one month ahead on my 2015 UFO list.
Saturday morning I got half of Kurly Kats hand sewing the binding done.  It was just too hot Saturday in San Diego to have all of it's fabric in my lap much more than the few hours just after breakfast.  We had record heat in some parts of the county.  At one point it was 93'...and Spring hasn't even started yet.  This heat wave is to last a few days and then drop back down to normal temperatures for this time of year in our area.

So without further ado, my stats for this week:

Used this week: 0 yards
Used YTD: 69.25 yards
Purchased this week:  2.5 yards
Purchased YTD: 36.75 yards
Net Fabric Used in 2015:  32.5 yards

I hope your week is awesome.  See how others are using their stash through the links at

Kurly Kats is awesom. Like how you finished it off.
wow, you are for sure having a heat wave. Hope that is a one time temp for 2015. San Diego usually has the best weather in the US. I like the Batik that you picked out. It will blend into anything.
