Not much playing with fabric this week at Life in Pieces. Though I did get into the sewing room long enough to finish cutting out block 6 for the Fat Quarter Stars Quilt Along. Maybe I'll actually get that block sewn together tonight. That would be nice as block 9 comes out on Tuesday.
The stash report for 2012 is starting off in the wrong direction. We had some time after the volleyball tournament to stop by one of the quilt shops yesterday so I could pick up some lighter neutrals for the Scrappy Stars UFO. Several suggested last week that I try lighter backgrounds to reduce the business of the quilt and that worked really well (Thanks, Liz, Trudy, Kate and Melanie). Unfortunately, There are almost no neutrals in my stash, so I bought extra so there will be some to put back into the stash when the project is over. So the stash report took another hit.
Used last week: 0 yards
Added last week: 12 yards
Used for 2012: 0.28 yards
Added for 2012: 22.5 yards
Net stashed for 2012: 22.22 yards
Here's what came home yesterday.
Not a great start to the new year, but I had decided that this year wasn't going to be about stash reduction, but about adding the fabrics I needed to finish projects.
It's time to go wake up Drama Teen for day two of the volleyball tournament. Check out what's going on with stash management this week by jumping over to Patchwork Times.
