Fabric Fast Stats

So this week started out with my HG scrappy quilt. I don’t even know where to start with counting yardage for that quilt. I actually made the blocks last year…so I am just going to wait and count backing & binding when I get around to making them.

But I did use up several yards of my Kona muslin for the QOV quilts. which I am also not going to count because I Am keeping track of the bolts I purchase. The year isn’t even half over yet. I have traded fabrics, been gifted fabrics and re-arranged my stash about 50 times. I have had to concede on some projects and make them with different fabrics than I would have if I had bought what I truly wanted. In the end I still feel good using what I have. I am thinking on doing this another year …depending on how much stash I have left. We will see what December looks like. I may have to change my rules a bit or stock up n a few key items that I know I will use. But I really think I could last another year with my stash. If I just look at my current stats and what I have left. It’s pretty unbelievable. Denial is a great thing while you are buying. But I am also thinking at some point I am going to have to quilt sewing ans start quilting some of these….and that might be what sustains me for a second year. I can spend a year just quilting what I have already made and let my stash marinate. LOL

I did make this table runner:IMG_8778 IMG_8779

I had a few extra points leftover from my Sisters Choice quilt. So I just cut some stash to complete the blocks and make a runner.   I am holding off on making backings for some of my recent quilts. I hate leaving them without backings……but I am getting to the point of not wanting to sacrifice yardage. At the rate I am quilting these (not) ….I think I can afford to wait and see what I need as I go. I think if I actually get to quilting some of my quilt tops I will have scraps from other backings so I can piece together a few more. …so that’s another good reason to wait.
