Sunday Stash Report - April 18, 2010

A little progress this week on my numbers. I did go by a quilt shop to drop off a charity quilt the manager is going to quilt and ended up buying but only 1 yard. I had scraps left from my mardi gras quilt and bought two half yard pieces to go with that. Figure I will add black from my stash and maybe make up some bright 9 patches with the left overs.

My current numbers are:

Fabric Used this week: 4.25 yards
Fabric Used YTD: 86.75 yards
Added this week: 1 yard
Added YTD: 60.25 yards
Net used in 2010: 26.50


I was involved in a cutting bee yesterday, to bad I couldn't count those numbers. One of the ladies had about ten boxes of fabric donated to her from a lady moving into a retirement home. One lady sat and organized the fabric into categories and three of us were cutting up kits.

I cut kits for 4 charity quilts while there and another one once I got home. I also brought home several large pieces that will be backings for hospice quilts and another couple of arm loads to be gradually made into kits.

That was so nice of you and the others to help out a friend. Great to get kits made up like that too. Jane

I love that idea of cutting up kits of the donated fabrics. I have some fabrics that are being donated to me and I think I will do just that!!

Must be the time for donations--I sent some to a 4H club, I know I would never get to it, and what happens if those young kids NEVER LEARN TO QUILT! We will disappear off the earth!
