Stash Enhancement/Busted - Week 49

My fabric addiction finally got the better of me yesterday. I went shop hoppng with a few friends and did some enhancements to my stash.  I had been so good for most of the year, but it was bound to happen sooner or later. It was lots of fun though.  Just wish I could have held off another 4 weeks.
Fabric Added this week:       12. 91 yards
Fabric Added Year-to-Date:  43.91 yards
Fabric Used this week :         2 yards  (pillowcases)
Fabric Used Year-to-date:-    87.94 yards

Here is a peek at some of my new fabrics.

The ones on the top are for charity projects (pillowcases, backings on baby quilts), the reddish/gold batik is for the liturgical quilt and the floral and fat quarters are for Easy Street mystery quilt.  I'm still in the black for the year, but way off the mark for my goals of using more fabric than last year.  Well, there is always next year, right?

I'm linking up with Patchwork Times, so check there to see what others did this week.

  1. I love that floral fabric!!! And your aquas/limes are perfect for Easy Street. Every now and again we have to add to the stash - it's a rule :*D You've done a great job of keeping your purchases to a minimum - much better than me for sure!

  3. It happens to the best of us, Dar! I splurged a few weeks ago and did more damage than you.

  6. I love the floral you have. Is that going to be borders on Easy Street? The colours look perfect.

  7. But what kind of quilters would we be if we didn't buy any fabric?! Under 50 yards all year and almost 90 used - that deserves applause in my book!

  8. You've used twice as much as you've added. I think you are doing fabulous, Dar. Great enhancements, btw.

  9. Very pretty fabrics! You've had a good year in terms of stash management, so you should celebrate that even as you think of ways to get where you want next year.

  10. All I see is the red batik. Beautiful. I think you should be very proud of your usage. Geez, 88 yards in less than a year! That's wonderful. When you run out of fabric, come to my house.

  13. Sounds to me like you can still purchase another 44.03 yards before the end of the year. That way you can break even, not use all of it up. I'm a firm believer that 'she who dies with the most fabric, wins'
