2013 Progress Report

So I have been meaning to continue writing this blog for a while, well who am I kidding a really long while.  So I figured I would hop on the bandwagon and keep track of my stash yardage in and out for the year.

So last week I was planning a new baby quilt, and bought 6.75 yds of greens and other tones for the multi-colored animals.  I know that seems like a lot of fabric, but I know some of it will end up in the stash. 
 Here is an image of the quilt I am planning: http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/product-gallery/1571204911/ref=cm_ciu_pdp_images_0?ie=UTF8&index=0&isremote=0

Then I also am almost finished with my border of the month quilt, and needed a backing, so I bought 5.5 yards to back it. 

The cream border now has flowers, a vine and some leaves, but I have to finish button hole stitching them on Friday.  Then it's time to find a long-arm quilter who will baste the quilt for me.  I think I am going to hand quilt it.

In addition to the fabric that has come in this week I am also happy to say that my latest Queen sized quilt is finally finished.  It has been back from the Quilter since October/November and now is complete.  So I can count this in my fabric out.  Since I did not keep track of my exact yardage, for this quilt I will call this 11 yds of fabric between the top, border, backing and binding (it's probably more than that, but I can't find the pattern).

Fabric in MTD: 12.25 yds
Fabric in YTD: 12.25 yds
Fabric out MTD: 11 yds
Fabric out YTD: 11 yds
YTD fabric added to the stash: 1.25 yds

When breaking it down like this it really looks like I did not add much this month.  Let's see if I can continue to keep on track.  I do know that I will be purchasing border fabric for my Easy Street quilt in March as well as for a Baby quilt.  I have looked all through my stash and can't find the right fabric. 

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Welcome to The Year of the Finished Project. Sorry I've taken so long to comment, I've been out of Blogland for two weeks. Good luck with your goals. We post our progress on Thursday 7 March.

  2. Thanks for your comment Lynne! I know what it feels like to be out of Blogland. I have been out of town the last 3 weeks. I think I am overdue for another post :)
