Sunday Stash Report - Week 2

I have been fighting bronchitis so didn't accomplish as much as I would have like this week but I did manage to get the Patriotic Bear quilt all together, quilted and even the binding put on by machine, only the hand work left to do.

I also cut out a strippy quilt yesterday but that yardage will not be measured until the top is finished.

My stash is extensive but am going to see how long I can go without buying any fabric.  When we were faced with closing our LQS I went through my stash and found fabrics that I had purchased over several years but had not made into anything because I didn't have any "go with" fabrics for them.  Before our going out of business sales I shopped the shop and found blenders to go with my fabrics and tied them up into nice little bundles just ready for me to start a new project at anytime.    Here are about 10 of my bundles waiting and ready to go.   I guess the challenge will be coming up with patterns that use that amount of fabric and only use 4 or 5 colors.

Here are my bundles...

My stats for the week are:

Fabric used this week:  7 yards (bear quilt top, backing and binding)
Fabric purchased this week:  0
Fabric used YTD:  9.5
Fabric purchased YTD:  0

your bundles are a great idea!!!

Cute finish, Kathie. I have learned that the downside of "bundling" is I raid a bundle for another project or I forget I already have the "perfect" fabric for something when it is tied up in another bundle. Nevertheless, we all need a method, a process, a something to help (notice I didn't say KEEP) us organized.

Fun quilt. Not sure I would be able to keep my bundles bundled! Thanks for sharing.
