Sunday Stash Report, April 10

No report last week; nothing in or out.

The only fabric out this week was 9-patches made for our guild's service projects, since I'm not in the mood to weigh the trash this week. 12 12.5 inch blocks = 1.3 yards.

I also picked up a kit for this year's Service Projects challenge, for a medallion quilt. That's already started, but it added 3.5 yards to the stash.


This week's thrift shop yielded a few finds. First, a crochet book.


Some bags of floss, a couple of strings of beads, and straight pins.

A milk glass creamer and sugar (no lid unfortunately). Totally goes in the craft budget since I use the milk glass pieces to hold sewing stuff.



Spending this week: $9.25

Total spending this year: $125.29

Fabric in this week: 3.5 yards

Fabric in this year: 13.48 yards

Fabric out this week:  1.3 yards 

Fabric out this year: 22.12 yards


Net: 8.64 yards OUT

Project Quilting 13.6 - Flying Geese

 The last PQ challenge of this season from Kim Lapacek at Persimon Dreams is Flying Geese.

The requirement was to have at least five flying geese blocks.

I made a placemat to donate to our Service Projects. It's 14 x 18, the preferred size for the placemats.

Project Quilting 13.5 - Rhythm & Repetition

 Finished yesterday! In response to the latest PQ challenge: https://kimlapacek.com/2022/02/rhythmandrepetition.html

I didn't intend for this to be the colors of the Ukranian flag, but it worked out that way. Hoping someone will take it off my hands for the price of a donation to a food bank or World Central Kitchen. If no takers, it will be donated to our Service Projects for a preemie quilt. It's small- 28 inches square.

Sunday Stash (a day late)

I wound up taking the youngest to JoAnn for assorted supplies this weekend, and also bought some flannel to finish a baby quilt - that just needs borders.

A thrift store stop yielded a square of flannel big enough for a small baby quilt- maybe 30 x 30. It'll go for this week's Project Quilting challenge. 

6.2 oz of trimmings and awful fabric tossed - 1.36 yards

Spending this week: $6.76

Total spending this year: $96.80
