Stash Report and May New FO

Although I've played with and used lots of fabric this week, I really didn't reduce my stash very much.  Most of the bindings and quilt backings that I made were from fabrics given to me for that purpose, so it doesn't count against my "used" numbers. Darn!!  However, I did use a little from my stash in making these star blocks for one member of our piecing group. She wanted non-bright stars with neutral backgrounds.

My numbers for the week:
Fabric Added - 0
Fabric Added YTD - 71.95 yds
Fabric Used - .25 (guesstimate)
Fabric Used YTD - 57.71 yds
Net added in 2013 - 14.24 yds

I'm still hopeful the net number will be in the black before the end of June. I still have my eye on a goal of using at least 200 yards this year.

But the reason my stash is not dwindling down is that I started another new FO in May.  It was planned to be a gift in May, but I ran out of time:  So now it will have be a future gift for someone. lol.

It was a kit from Timeless Treasures called Autumn Plume and the fabrics were so pretty.  I didn't get much done on it.  In fact, I only got as far as taking it out of the wrapper, admiring and petting the beautiful fabrics and drawing up my template to cut the diamonds, but it was started in May.  Maybe I can get the top finished at an upcoming retreat!.



I am linking up with Patchwork Times for the Stash Report and Cat Patches for the May New FO.  Go check them out to see what others are up to.
