Sunday Stash Report - Mother's Day 2014

First of all Happy Mother's day to all the Moms, grandmas and step-moms out there.  Hope you have a wonderful day.  

I don't know what happened this week but have very little to report.  I did get a couple of tops quilted so guess that is where my quilting time went.  The only fabric I can claim used is one quilt backing and a table runner.  

I made this table runner out of left over 1 1/2 inch strips from a layer cake quilt I made recently.  Usually pieces that small I just toss but decided to use these because I liked them so much.  Don't think I will do that again, seemed to take forever to sew them all together but made a cute summer runner.

This was also my sewing buddy yesterday.  I turned around from my machine and she was right up at the sliding glass door watching me.  I think we stared at each other for a good 10 minutes before she finally walked off.  

My stats for the week are:

Fabric purchased this week:  3.5 yards (for baby quilt backing)
Fabric used this week:  5 yards (purple backing and summer runner)

Fabric purchased YTD:  51.75
Fabric used YTD:  130

Net fabric used this year:  78.25

Fun runner!

Cute sewing buddy. She must have been a curious one (that or she wants a quilt. LOL)

I usually don't save pieces that small either. It did make a mighty cute table runner though.

Such a cute runner with what would have been in the trash can. Glad you saved those pieces. Your quilting buddy looks like a pet. I'm impressed with your stash numbers too.
