Stash Report 2/19/12

Yay - I finally started cutting into my Color Challenge Fabrics!!  And I am still cutting up my scraps into layer cakes... I thought I would show you the madness


here is how this is working... I am grabbing a pile of fabrics, ironing it, and then cutting. If it works to cut ten inch squares - I do that... if it needs to be stripped it goes into that pile on the right ( behind the orange box). If I can cut a 10 from it, I do, and then I strip the rest of the fabric into 5 inch strips, and 2 1/2 inch strips.... in the end I know that i will have enough for another couple sew days.... We will have Quilt of Valor tops galore!!!  


And since I count it out when I cut it, as I am not always the one sewing it, my number look good... so hows that for coming clean?  And knowing that in the next couple of months a lot of sewing will be taking place, but not a lot of stash moving out..... sigh

Oh Alycia---send some of your quilting mojo my way, would you? As always....wishin' I was closer to quilters like yourself! Excellent progress!

I am amazed that you have gone through 133 yards already this year. That is incredible!

I could easily buy 133 yards in two months, but I don't think I could use that much. :)

Can't wait to see all the quilt tops that come out of your sew days!
