Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Stash Report – Final for 2015



My sister gave me a 3 yard length of this Nutcracker fabric for Christmas, it is the last of the yardage to be added to my stash for the year.


Week before last, I was given a bag of scraps – some with batting still attached. I finally sorted the bag out and have a lovely pile of fabric.


The binding for the Black & Bright quilt, plus the pillowcases, is the last of the yardage that is used for the year.

Overall for the year I think I did very well.  I personally only bought 59.448 yards of fabric — the rest , another 172.017 yards was either given to me or I won it.  You truly will be amazed at how much fabric there can be in a bag of “scraps”.

Total fabric brought into the house this year: 231.465 yards

Total fabric used this year: 177.859 yards

Net fabric in my stash: 53.606 yards

How did you do with your stash this year? Do you anticipate a different outcome next year?  I know I do. I avoided the thrift shops this year, but I’ve been asked to make another quilt from recycled shirts, so will be bringing in more shirts after the first of the year – at 1-1/2 yards of fabric a shirt and at most only using 1/4 of a yard from each shirt, I expect to have plenty of fabric left over. I’m guessing nearly 60 yards.

Hop over to Patchwork Times to see how others did with their stashes.

One Thought on “Stash Report – Final for 2015

  1. The nutcracker fabric is very fun. Even though you ended in the red, you still had a lot going out this year. Good luck with stash management for next year, it’s always a challenge.
