Stash Report & Goals Update

January Stash Report:
Yards IN - 19.75 (1-1/2 yds  for Gramercy & Friends; 10 yd bolt of white on sale; 5 yds Hancock's sale including some for pillowcases; 3-1/4 yds FQ sale)
Yards OUT - 0.  Nothing I can count, nothing finished enough. I did make 23 12" blocks but since the flimsy isn't finished I can't count the fabric yet.

YTD IN - 19.75
YTD Net change - 19.75 yds in.

Because most of this was sale fabric and very good prices, I ended up spending on average less than $4.00 a yard for what I bought in January. So, it was well worth the hit to my stash report to score these bargains. Now I just have to get busy and use up some yardage!

January Update
1. Add borders to CSQ raffle quilt. DONE & delivered to Sandy for quilting.
2. Design cover for Broken Chevron pattern in Photoshop. DONE - see below
3. Piece backing for Plus Dash top. Found wide white-on-white backing in stash, will use that instead of pieced backing. Plus Dash is on Sandy's wait list.
4. Work on project for potential publication. Completed ripping & re-piecing; worked on blocks; determined layout.
5. Keep up with bee blocks.  DONE
6. Prep projects to work on at camp retreat in Feb. DONE. Have 8 pillowcases kitted, two large blocks for Gramercy & Friends kitted, and "potential publication project" blocks to assemble into top.
 -  Extra accomplished, not on original list: Made 23 different 12" blocks for "Gramercy & Friends."
 -  Other extra accomplished: Made pincushion for STLMQG pincushion swap.

I'd say January was a very productive month. February may be a little lighter; grandbaby is due this month.

February Goals:
1. Make two 24" blocks for Gramercy & Friends at camp
2. Make 8 pillowcases at or before camp, to be given on 2/14 for delivery.
3. Work on Gramercy & Friends to complete the flimsy
4. Work on project for potential publication
5. Keep up with bee blocks
6. Pull unwanted fabric from stash for CSQ guild Fabric Swap on 2/17

With these goals - if I accomplish them - I'll have some good yardage-out numbers in February.

I also need to get the label sewn on my Broken Chevron quilt and print some more patterns. A local quilt shop is going to hang the quilt and sell my patterns. If you are interested in the Broken Chevron pattern, check out the Patterns tab above and e-mail me.

Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times.


  1. That's wonderful about the LQS carrying your pattern!!!!

  2. You did very well in January! I, too, expect better stash numbers for February as I have some more finishes. Have a great week!
