So, this is it. The final reckoning. This has been a great exercise… once I actually saw the numbers and how much I was buying it became easier to scale things back.
I ordered a bundle of fat quarters (on sale) and four 1 yard cuts of black on white (Easy Street, I am completely out) but unless they come on Monday (not likely) this will be the first for 2013. Since I haven’t gotten them I’ m not counting them yet!
My final finish for this year is the tree skirt from Missouri Quilt Co. Made from 2 charm packs (1.25yds) and 1.5 yards for borders and binding as well as 2 3/4 yards for the backing… I’m thinking 5.5 yards in this project. This picture was taken with my Ipod touch, then transferred using i-cloud…it really isn’t a very good picture.
Acquired since last report…..0
Acquired YTD……189.25 yds
Used since last report…… 5.5 yards
Used YTD………219 5/8 yards
Net for 2012…….30 3/8 yards….Woo whoooo I used more than I added!
I love how several times I was reminded that it is OK to” freshen” the stash. And I know that when the LQS has their big sale, or when I’m at a big quilt show I will buy….just to keep things current! I’m really happy to have used more than I acquired.
I’m doing this again in 2013.
