I purchased fabric on friday for a quicky Warm Wishes quilt that my DH and I are making. A Co-worker's husband is very ill, his favorite thing to do is fish so we went and purchased fish fabric on friday. Yesterday I made the blocks and Ed started sewing them into rows and then I started getting the rows sewn together. Nice we can be a team on this.
Stats for the week are:
Fabric used this week: 8.5 yards (mostly on the warm wishes quilt)
Fabric used YTD: 49.5 yards
Fabric purchased this week: 6
Fabric purchased YTD: 38.5
Net used in 2011: 11 yards
I am thinking about re-thinking my stash reduction goals for this year. My goal last year was to downsize by 100 yards which I did hit, just barely. I am finding that so much of my stash is like 1/2 to 3/4 yard sizes which are hard to use up except in scrap quilts and I am finding I don't have many blenders etc. I might switch my goal to just staying in the black with the amount used/vs. purchased but concentrate more on using up old old fabric and replacing with blenders and nice "go with" fabrics.
My only sewing for the rest of the week was getting this backing completed for my Christmas ribbons quilt.
Another co-work of my DH asked if I would make them a quilted seat cover. I didn't have time so Ed went ahead and made the cover and I quilted it. I was calling the DH a ONE BLOCK WONDER. He can do very accurate piecing if he wants to but is never interested in making more than one block as he says that is boring!! Didn't he do a great job.
