Stash Report Sunday

I admit I am late doing this because I have been playing in my stash!!! But that sure doesn't help this weeks report any *grin*

Used this week:                  0 Yards
Used Year to Date:            148.7 Yards

Charity Fabrics Added:      33.25 yards 
               I finally caved and measured that box of fabrics that Lois's group donated
Purchase Fabrics:               0 yards
Total Added YTD:                130.5 yards

Net Stash BUSTED YTD:     -18.203 yards Used ( gotta add that .203 makes me look good!)

Now I do just want to say of all that fabric added - I have only purchased 2 3/4 yard. That has to count for something right? Cuz boy - have I been tempted!!!

These are all the fabrics from Lois's group. I have BIG plans for these. Our QOV group is going to make those really fast strip quilts that have been all over the internet ( and of course, when I want the link I can not find it) but they are made with a Jelly roll.... so the boys - TONIGHT - are going to start cutting some of this up into 2 1/2 strips - using my AccuQuilt GO .... cuz you all KNOW it is not smart to give 3 boys rotary cutters -

I figure that at least 6 of us will attempt these tops - so I need at least 240 strips - that ought to make a dent right????

To see how others did or what pretties they bought - cuz they didn't have my kids tagging along saying - oh mom - do you really need that?

Go to :Judy's

Your reason for being late is perfectly justifiable, and I look forward to seeing what you do with the strips.

I look forward to seeing the Jelly Roll quilt. I have seen the video and love this idea. I have a bunch of stuff I need to cut up and work on. Good luck with the boys cutting.

I'm not sure what strip quilts you mean so now I'm curious. It's probably not safe to give ME a rotary cutter, so good idea to have your kids use the Accuquilter. That's a nice looking pile of fabric.

Good job using your stash instead of writing about it! Can't wait to see what you do with the strips!

Sounds like you have serious plans, so hopefully you'll be back in the black before long.
