Stash Report Week 3

I went to the Quilt Club at the local fabric store, and they had a scrap bag available! It's really more strips that scraps, but it works for me. I figured about 1.4 yards, and since I had a coupon, a grant total of $1.47.

I've also been going through boxes of stuff that DH brought home from his parents' house. Some of the material is usable, but some of it is NOT, and that's just going in the trash. I'm calling it "used" since I had to deal with it, and it used to be part of the stash. Maybe half a yard got tossed.

EDIT: The biggest thing was what I DIDN'T buy this week. I thought about buying some wide backing for Mom's quilt, and even fondled the sheeting at Hancock's last week, but decided to wait until (1) I had the new coupon, and (2) I was ready for the backing. Well, after waiting, I decided that I'd piece the back, dang it. When I went up to the stash to look for backing material, what do I see? A HUGE chunk of nice cream sheeting. And what's this? It's extra-wide? SCORE!!!

Used this Week: .5 yards
Used year to Date: 1.9 yards
Added this Week: 1.4 yards
Added Year to Date: 1.4 yards
Net Used for 2011: .5 yards

I'm hoping for much better numbers next week - I finished the top of my Mom's quilt, and will sandwich it later tonight, and hopefully get it quilted in the next week. I may or may not get my friend Kim's quilt sandwiched and quilted, since I have to work on a guild challenge piece due in early February.

At least you still used more than came in!
