A Finished Flimsy and Stash Report 4/6/14

Finally!  Some fabrics out the door and closer to finding a home with a deserving veteran.  Do you remember the QOV that I put together at retreat last month.  Well I finally got all the borders put on, made matching binding and a pillowcase and even found a piece of fabric large enough for the backing.  It felt so good to get this done AND to check off another UFO sitting too long on my shelf. These blocks were orphan blocks and one of them doesn't really fit, but I wanted to use up what I had, and they were all color coordinated at least. I'm sure a veteran will enjoy using it anyway.

The backing is the same fabric as was used for the cuff on the pillowcase.  The red border and binding of the quilt is the same fabric as the pillowcase bottom.  
So my numbers for this week are:
Fabric Added - zero
Fabric Added YTD - 2.25 yds
Fabric Used - 7 yds (borders, pillowcase, binding and backing)
Fabric Used YTD - 16.28 yds
Net used for 2014 - 14.03 yds

Hope you had a good week and accomplished lots of stashbusting in your sewing room.  To see other Stash reports for the week, drop on by Judy's Patchwork Times
