Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Stash Report Week # 46

I’ve completely ignored my Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler blocks so far this month. Maybe over Thanksgiving weekend I’ll get all 5 of them done for the month. It will only add up to about 5/8 yard, but every inch counts.

The binding is going on the graduation quilt! I made it last night, so 5/8 yards out.

This past year I’ve reached for that fabric on more than one occasion to use it for something — the last time I stapled a note to the selvage so I wouldn’t use it and then wonder what happened to the binding fabric for Josh’s quilt.

The note is now off the fabric and the remaining 7/8 yards is in the “blue” bin so I can use it for something else.

Fabric Added this Week: 0 yards
Fabric Added to Date: 282.333 yards

Fabric Used this Week: .625 yards
Fabric Used to Date: 90.386 yards

Net Stash: +191.947 yards

  1. Good for you for not using that binding fabric for another project. Can't tell you how many times I've done that! About that stashbusting effort . . we may need to talk about which direction you're supposed to be heading! 🙂

    I cut the binding strips and put them in a little ziploc bag with a label for what quilt they are for.That way I don't have to worry about accidently using the fabric for something else.

    I think quilters use a LOT of ziplock bags!
