Stash Report 5/18/14

I went to Paducah on Monday to deliver all my book stuff to my editor. WHile there, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to visit Hancock's and Quilt in a Day, now, could I?!!!

Let me tell you, two weeks after Quilt Week is a great time to visit Hancock's of Paducah. All the hordes who visited during Quilt Week generated tons of bolt ends and remnants. I scored lots of 3/8 to 1-yard cuts of all sorts of good stuff, including Kona cotton in white and black, always good stash additions. I picked up a couple of remnants and FQs at Quilt in a Day, too.  The stash definitely grew some this week!

Yardage in, 10.625.
Out, 4.6 yards for a sample donation quilt (more tomorrow)
Monthly and YTD totals will be tallied at the end of the month, but the stash is definitely ahead.

some half-yard cuts of low volume backgrounds
and a Kaffe Fasset remnant
pink & grey, because my stash was lacking in these colors
fun bolt ends and remnants

OK, I didn't have an immediate plan for these so they're purely stash enhancement. But at bolt-end prices, I couldn't pass them up.

Linking up today with Judy at Patchwork Times; check out everyone else's stash reports over there. I'm sure everyone is doing much better than I am this week at keeping their stash under control!


  1. I agree - I never pass up good deals when I know I'll use the fabric.
