Stash Report - Week 27 - 7/3/11

Every time I make some progress in the sewing room I seem to think I need to reward myself by shopping for fabric. This past week I finished the binding on the Yellow Taxi Cab. WooHoo. Four yards for the backing and binding. Great.

Then Friday was the first day of July and I thought, "Christmas in July!" Made me think of all the Christmas presents I need to make. This year I am hoping to be making 15 casserole carriers (as seen Here, Here, and the tutorial Here) and I'm not thrilled with the fabric I have for them so far. What's a girl to do? Luckily my good friend Joyce was happy to accompany me to Joanns so I could acquire some very pretty fabric. Eight yards of pretty fabric.

I started looking at fabric for the linings of the carriers and decided that I had tons of muslin that would work very nicely. (I'll probably change my mind about that and buy some more pretty fabric for the linings the next time I reward myself for finishing a project. LOL)

Stash Report
Used the past week: 4 yards
Used year to date: 59.25 yards 

Added the past week: 8 yards
Added year to date: 90.75 yards

Net used in 2011: -31.50 yards (not good but could be worse)

Head over to Patchwork Times to see how others are doing with busting their stash.

Your taxi cab quilt is amazing, it makes me like yellow! Is it your own design? I love it!

Love the fabric choices on your finished quilt!

I like the name you chose for your Yellow quilt. My Numbers are about dead even so if I keep trying to stay at least even this year, I'll do good. Half way doen with the year, so we have time to use up some more.

Melinda, I love your quilts, love your blog, love everything you do!! Now here's my thought - incase you get bored making 15 casserole cozi thingys- insulated pizza box covers (With bias piping, of course)! I have 2 insulated bags but the large pizza boxes are too big to fit in these.What do you think? Audrey
