August has been a good month for stash busting. I finished two quilt backs this month and that really helped bump up the stash numbers. Now I'm back to making blocks to finish off projects, so there is not as much going out this week.
Used last week: 0.33 yards
Used in August: 9.92 yards
Used year to date: 28.21 yards
Purchased year to date: 10.25
Net used for 2015: 17.96 yards
Hopefully Back to Square One will need a back before the end of September and I'll get another nice bump in the used year to date numbers. I picked up the now quilted Grand Illusion from the post office on Friday. I started making the binding yesterday. I've recently started sewing the labels on with the binding to make them harder to remove, so that also needed to be finalized yesterday.
I decided to just keep the quilt name as The Grand Illusion. Since Bonnie's inspiration was a hotel, the postcard seem to be an appropriate label format. The label has been soaked, rinsed and left to dry overnight. Hopefully I'll get the binding sewn on this evening so I can start the hand stitching tomorrow.
That's it for my stash report. You can find more stash tales over at Patchwork Times.
