Stash Report

I’ve been trying to not buy fabric….not because I am trying to save money or anything like that.  I just have projects here that I want to finish.  If I add more fabric, the projects I love and want to finish sometimes get pushed aside.

I did however buy some fabric yesterday.  Who can say no at only $.50 for each piece?


It is 9 yards worth.  Yep 9 yards for $2.50.  I got the plaids thinking I could use them with shirts…maybe as border pieces or backing.  Time will tell.

Today I had some free time so I whipped up a couple doll quilts for the Mississippi Valley Quilters Doll Quilt Drive.  Making the doll quilt tops was real easy as the pieces for the centers were in goodie bags of scraps and crumbs that have been sent to me by readers of the blog…THANKS girls for sending me your scraps!!!  Their leftovers were perfect for this project.

The quilts aren’t meant to be fancy.  They are given to the Head Start children in the Quad City area.


See simple but I am sure, very appreciated.

The black polka dot was in some fifty cent fabric I got a few weeks ago.  When I purchased it I had no idea what I was going to do with it but it looks like it found a good home in this doll quilt.

I did finish a quilt this week.  If you missed it you can find it here.

Here are my stash report numbers…

    Just wondering how you calculate the yardage out. I was thinking of doing a running tally but wasn’t sure how to figure out what went into a quilt top.
