Stash Report 1/15/17

One of the local quilt shops had a Fat Quarter Frenzy event, all FQs $1 each. I couldn't resist; 16 FQs came home with me.

The purples are for my Pat Sloan Solstice Challenge project. The aquas and low volumes are purely stash enhancement. The greens are for a project requested by my son for next Christmas.

Since I finished my LCT QOV, I can count out the backing (3-3/4 yards) and binding (5/8) yards.

So, this week/month/year-to-date:
IN: 4 yards
OUT: 4-3/8 yards

Since my objective for the year is to break even or have a net stash reduction, this is a fine start.

Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times - check out everyone else's beginning of the year stash management efforts over there.


  1. More out than is always a good thing in my books. I love the FQs you chose.

  2. I just brought home some nice greens as well, and I'm thinking some aqua/teal wouldn't go amiss, either. FQ's for a dollar would indeed be very hard to pass up! It's great you found some that will work well for ongoing or upcoming projects.

  3. Purples are a colour sadly missing from my stash, will have to rectify that after seeing your lovely collection & for $1 a bargain for sure

  4. I like what your picked up at the great FQ sale. I almost wanted to go, but since I don't need any particular color right now, I stayed away. You got some good ones.

  5. That's a great sale! You showed great restraint by only buying 16 :)

  6. Fat quarters are such a great way to enhance and refresh the stash. But isn't it amazing how fast that yardage can add up?


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