I started off the new year with a trip to the Goodwill Outlet store where I picked up all of these shirts for $7.12. I’m guesstimating there is about 19 1/2 yards of usable fabric. The thrift store run (and the one I’ll make later today) is to gather more shirts for yet another Disappearing 9-Patch quilt. I’ve already started pulling shirt pieces from my stash to cut the squares. This one will start with 39 unique 9-patches.
- Fabric Used Since Last Report: 0 yards
- Fabric Used Year to Date: 0 yards
- Fabric Purchased Since Last Report: 19.5 yards
- Fabric Purchased Year to Date: 19.5 yards
- Net Fabric to Stash: 19.5 yards
Do I have any goals for the stash this year? I want to work from my stash. Limit my purchases to what I need to finish what I’m working on and not buy fabric just to have something new to work on. The exception to that rule/goal will be if I’m buying fabric for a quilt that I’ve been commissioned to make — the shirt quilt is an example.
Looking at the first five projects I have lined up, with the exception of the Disappearing 9-Patch and the Turquoise & Green Strip Twist, I think I have everything I need to complete them – well, except for batting.
Hop over to Patchwork Times. to see if other took advantage of New Year’s Sales.
