It was a good stash reduction week. I made two backings for quilts, several small sample backings for a quilting talk I will be giving and a few other misc. things.
I had several quilts that needed backings. Looked at my box of 10 1/2 squares already cut and had a few in the brown family so decided to make the backing for my small left over fish quilt first as I only had to find and cut half of the fabric.
Even though it is taking awhile to make backings I am glad I didn't buy any of the wide backing fabric the other day at JoAnns. I will save buying backing fabric for when I have to get the quilt done in a hurry or there is NOTHING in my stash at all that I can use for the quilt.
My stats for the week are:
Fabric used this week: 10 yards
Fabric used YTD: 71 yards
Fabric purchased this week: 2 yards (pretty pink stripe)
Fabric purchased YTD: 48.5 yards
Net used in 2011: 22.5 yards
At least my net is getting up there a slight bit.
