Hi ... my name is Colleen and I am a wife and mother living under the sun in San Diego, California. I have one son and one daughter and three dogs ... My furry children. I created this blog so I can ... well, what else? Talk about quilting ... and the other things most important in my life ... family and friends!
Okay ... No excuses here! I have no idea where the last few weeks went! Yikes!!! So am combining several weeks worth of stash reports. Easy to do because not a ton of sewing was going on. I feel like the tides are changing a little, so I hope that those stash reports will start reflecting it!
Used this Week: 3.25 yards Used year to Date: 41.25 yards Added this Week: 3.25 yards Added Year to Date: 23 yards Net Used for 2014: 18 1/4 yards
Even though I added 3.25 yards, I also managed to do a quilt in my Stashbusting class that used 3.25 yards ... I promise those amounts washed themselves out on accident!
A couple of weeks ago I went on a small quilt shop trip with two friends. I only added a couple pieces of some new Diamond Textile fabrics ...
Really pretty tangerine dot and an equally cute grey and pink check fabric. I also bought a fat quarter of plain white to use in the Stashbusting quilt I was making.
This week I went with a friend and bought 2 yards of a Kona white since I loved the last quilt I just made (see my next blog post), I needed some white. I have lots of beige and tan fabrics, but white isn't something I usually have in my stash.
I also have planned a quilt for my next stash class in June ... A red white and blue picnic quilt, so I added 1/3 yard of this interesting red.
How about a peek at that Stashbusting quilt I just made
