Stash Report 12/13/15

Moving further in the wrong direction due to incoming fabric this week...

But I talked myself into a new project, using only stash, with a little encouragement from my friends.

Antler Dance is pin basted and ready to be spiral quilted. Antler Dance is special to me and I want to do a good job on the quilting. I haven't tried quilting anything other than small practice sandwiches on my new 770QE yet, so before I jump right into quilting Antler Dance on my new machine, I want to practice on a donation quilt first. So I pulled these fabrics from stash:

Yikes, a big mish-mash of black prints! And hard to work with due to their scale and their contrast issues, either too much or too little contrast.

I decided on a giant 4-patch using the huge white dot as the constant light. The stripe at the lower left is for sashing. The busy prints will be the 4-patch fabrics with the white dot, with each patch 6" to show off the large-scale prints.

Come back tomorrow for Design Wall Monday to see progress.  I can't count out the fabric yet, and even when I can, it won't offset this week's incoming.

So what came in? Well, my bee held our Christmas party and gift exchange, and I received a lovely gift of a pattern and two yards of cute fabrics, a green dot and a blue floral, both great stash additions. Then our guild held it's annual ticket raffle fundraiser yesterday, and I won a FQ bundle of 5 great neutrals, for another 1-1/4 yards.  I also won two charm packs, but I'm not counting pre-cuts in the stash. I rarely use precuts and I don't know yet what I'll do with these.

Total IN this week:  3-1/4 yards.
OUT this week: nothing I can count yet.

Check out the other stash reports over at Patchwork Times. Some people are doing much better than I am at managing their fabric intake!

So sorry to have to use word verification, but the spam has gotten unbearable lately.
