Stash Report 12/27/15

This may or may not be the final stash report for the 2015 - after all, there are still a few days left....

I finished quilting the practice quilt, so I can count the backing. The spirals did get a little easier and my skill improved. I have the binding prepped and I'll get that sewn on this week, so I'm going to go ahead and count it now.

December IN: 17 yards (14 yds - In Stitches Sale; 2 yds - Sew Bee It Xmas party; 1 yd yellow for table runner)
December OUT: 10-1/2 yards (1-3/4 yds Cannon's texture quilt;  Practice Quilt 3-1/4 yds top, 2-3/8 yds backing, 1/2 yd binding;  table runner top, back, & binding 1-1/2 yds; 3/4 yd damaged; 3/8 yd leftovers from practice quilt backing donated to STLMQG free table, )
December net change: 6-1/2 yards added

YTD IN: 160-1/4 yards
YTD OUT: 145-1/8 yards
YTD net change: 15-1/8 yards added to stash

Didn't break even. But overall not a bad year. I have two tops done and their backings prepped, one already basted and ready for quilting. That'll be a good start for the new year.

With all the busy-ness of Christmas, etc. (we're having our family celebration later today) plus the challenge of learning to use an unfamiliar new machine, I haven't thought about January goals.  I'll have to let the goals go for now and get to them later.

Linking up with Patchwork Times - check out the other stash reports there.


  1. Those 2 tops will make a great start for 2016. I have 3 tops at DD#1s waiting to be quilted with backs. They too will make a great start for 2016 when she gets to them.

  2. You've had a great year moving your stash around. Great numbers in 2015 as well as a good start towards 2016. I'll bet some awesome projects have moved through your hands throughout the year. Sure like your current project. Have fun with your family today. Happy Holidays, Sandi

  3. Maybe not break even, but you definitely used a lot of fabric this year. Enjoy your holiday celebration and hope you get some time for stitching in before the end of the year.

  4. I always love seeing your numbers. You have made so many wonderful things with all that fabric.
