Stash Report--February 2018



  • 10 1/2 yards in the 9-Patch Pizzazz
  • 2 yards + 2 @ 2 1/2" strips for pillowcases
  • I'm not counting the two charm packs from Sew Sampler (which is somewhere around 1 3/4 yards) as those are in-and-out. I added them but am already working on a project with them. I will also be using for that project, from my stash, 3/4 yard for border and binding, and 1 1/3 yard for backing. That stash fabric is getting counted.
  • Total Used: approx 14 1/2 yards. (I'm rounding it off.)


Added 3 yards from Cotton Cuts. Total added: approx. 3 yards


Net for the month: Down 11 1/2 yards (plus 2 strips!) Woo! Watch me go!

In the interest of simplicity and having to do less math, I decided not to keep track of total for the year but, rather, just go month by month. If I can keep it in the negative most months than I'll obviously be using up stash. 


Stash Report--January

I missed posting this on the 31st as I was out of town. A couple days late doesn't matter!

In the month of January, I:

  • Donated 41 1/2 yards of fabric (or, at least, set aside to donate as the donation step is a few months off).
  • Used 0 as I was working on quilt I'd started in December so it doesn't technically count.
  • Bought 20 @ 10" squares = approx 1 1/4 yards (Sew Sampler), 3 yards (Cotton Cuts), 1 Jelly Roll = 2 3/4 yards (Missouri Star Quilt Company), 9 yards of no-immediate-plan fabrics* (Mt. Pleasant Quilt Company). Total additions: 16 yards

Net: Still down 25.5 yards!

*If you recall, I'm not counting fabrics I had to buy for a project that will get used within a reasonable time period.
