Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Stash Report

The LQS has an awesome sale going on. Even so I wasn’t going to buy anything any — but they have select wide backings on sale for $5.95. I needed one more backing for the Challenge Quilt II quilts. The plan was to create a pieced backing from shirtings. But for $12, I could save myself a lot of time — and I had access to the long arm Saturday.  So, I bought 2 yards of this fabric. The report will show 4-1/2 yards as I converted the measurement to 45″ equivalent.



The quilt still needs binding, but it’s quilted, excess batting/backing is trimmed, and the threads are trimmed.

This week I also got around to making the pillowcases for Nifty Thrifty and the Green Disappearing 9-Patch quilts — I opted to split the green “yardage”  – I think I had 15″, so these pillowcases have a narrower cuff than I normally use.



The report:

Fabric Added Since Last Report 4.5 yards
Fabric Added to Date: 206.59 yards

Fabric Used Since Last Report: 5.517 yards
Fabric Used to Date: 149.71 yards

INCREASE in Stash to Date:  56.88 yards
