Stash ENHANCEMENT Report - July 31, 2011

Yesterday I went on the guild bus trip to the Hershey, PA quilt show. Fantastic show (to bad I forgot my camera), wonderful vendors and a great time. The 3 1/2 hour bus ride each way was kind of tiring but still had a wonderful time.

As I expected I did some major stash enhancement at the show. I was specifically looking to add a couple of batik fabrics to my stash and find some nice small prints that would make good borders to some fall table runners.

I ended up getting the batiks, the fall prints, a bright kids print and a FQ packet I couldn't pass up. In addition I purchased two patterns, a spool of bottom line bobbin thread, a couple of quilty cards and a telescoping back scratcher. I definitely helped the economy.

Here is a picture of my "haul" and stats for the week:

Fabric used this week: 3/4 yard
Fabric used YTD: 180 yards
Fabric purchased this week: 9 yards
Fabric purchased YTD: 127.5 yards
Net fabric used in 2011: 52.5 yards

My usage this week was very small. I spent most of the week quilting customer quilts and working on very little of my own projects. Here is a picture of one of the last customer quilts I quilted. This was made by a 14 year old, she did a great job.

and look at this little piece of a quilt, this was the last one on my frame.

Have a wonderful day.

Cute quilts! I probably would have done much worse on stash enhancement... looks like you had a great plan.

You did great on the enhancement. You are still in the busting mode.

A telescoping back scratcher? That sounds like something I need since I usually get an itch in an unreachable spot.

Very cute customer quilts. Nice fabric haul. I was in stash enhancement mode too. Must be in the air.
