Stash Report - October 2nd

I've been recording my stash additions and subtractions all year.  But I guess I haven't really been paying attention to the numbers.  This is my third publicly published stash report and in all three there have been additions to my stash, with only very minor withdrawals.  It's time for a ban on fabric purchases, at least till the end of the year.  

Moving on, here is this week's stash report:

Used this week   =  0 yards
Added this week =  18 yards
Used Year to Date =  34.68 yards
Added Year to Date = 345 yards
Net used for 2010 = -310.5 yards

What did I add?   A set of 14 gold fat quarters.  I have this idea for a black and gold quilt.  Not sure when I'll get to it, but I have this really beautiful black and gold fabric that is just begging to be used. 

Last is a set of Asian prints. 

My niece loves Japanese and Chinese art and culture. I found this beautiful geisha fabric (below) a couple of years ago (the color is a bit bright in this photo, it does match the blue in the blue floral above)

I've been trying to design a setting to use this panel, but everything I came up with wasn't "fun" enough (based on my daughter's input).  About 2 months ago I finally came up with a concept the appears to meet the "fun" requirement, but I need a number of Asian prints which will coordinate with the panel.  Not sure this is going to work.   We'll have to see how the full mock up in EQ comes out.  

Check out Judy's Patchwork Times to see how everyone else is doing with their stash reports.

I LOVE the gold fabrics and can't wait to see them used with the black and gold fabric. Keep us posted on that progress.

I dont think I want to count up how many yards of fabric I have in my sewing room...

Those asian prints are pretty. Cant wait to see what creative ideas you apply to them.

Love the asian prints! Think I might have one or two of those in my stash also! My husband LOVES asian prints - we already have two asian type quilts. I'm working on another one, and have enough fat quarters I could probably make a fourth! :D
