Stash Report - Week 27 in 2013

The 4th of July holiday weekend is just about over.  If you live in the USA, hope you had a wonderful celebration.  We paid a visit to my Mom's.  It was a low key holiday, which is what we all needed. 

Since the rest of July is going to be really busy, I took the opportunity yesterday to camp out in the sewing room.  The fabric for this month's NewFO was washed and pressed, so that took some time away from the stitching, but this was probably the only chance I'd have to get that all done.  Once that was out of the way, the real sewing began, only to be derailed when I realized the square in a square blocks for the second Back to Square One border were all coming out way too big. Thankfully Judy had provided the name of the block in EQ for those who wanted to paper piece it.  I printed off a foundation block and was able to figure out how to fix the 4 blocks I had finished.  It involves some unsewing, but it won't be too bad. So just a bit out this week.  

Used last week:  0.62 yards
Added last week:  2.5 yards

Used for 2013:  48.75 yards
Added for 2013:  131.08 yards

Net stashed for 2013:  82.33 yards

Yeah, I fell off the "no fabric" wagon this week.  My Guy, great person that he is, offered to let me wander around Oklahoma Quiltworks while he went to the bike shop.  How do you pass that up?  I ended up coming home with a few things.

The OSU Quilt has been such a big hit that I'm probably making at least one more of those.  I have plenty of orange left from the last one, but not so much of the OSU print because a lot of what I had was just fat quarters.  So a yard of each of the OSU prints came home with me. The two teal fat quarters are just stash builders.  

I also couldn't resist this stitchery pattern from Meg Hawkey from Crab-apple Hill.  

Barbara over at Cat Patches has stitched up a couple of quilts from stitchery patterns and I've loved her versions.  This is definitely a pattern for the 2014 NewFO challenge as I really need to finish my butterfly stitchery before I start this one.  Which means I really need to get stitching on those butterflies.    

That's my report for week 27. Check out more reports over at Patchwork Times.

Lol, want me to send you my OSU scraps? I certainly won't need them in Washington! ;) Loce the teals, and you can totally justify the little bit in with some out.

Love the pattern. I always look at those in the shops, but don't buy them because I know I'll never get around to making it. love the teal too.

Don't you just love all the Crabapple Hill patterns? I have so many of them and so few of them done. I've seen that Snowman one completed all in blues. I like the original much better though.

Love the OSU fabrics!

You and I both feel off the wagon this week. Im not even going to tell you how much I spent this past weekend. There seems to be a direct relationship for me between not starting new projects and then having to go out and spend money on new fabrics because that isnt actually breaking the no starting anything new rule (although Im obviously thinking about it )

Low key is a great way to spend a holiday :) Ours was the same :) Nice to get the prep tasks out of the way and on to the sewing part--glad you were able to reboot the project when your squares were too big. Enjoyed yourself at the quilt shop, I see :) Good for you!
