I have TOTALLY admired all the people out there who are so organized that they keep a running record of what they have in their fabric stash…..
I am totally amazed that they can even keep a weekly stash report on their computer in a spread sheet.
If you’re looking for that from me, I am afraid, it just isn’t going to happen. I am just not that organized. I have however, decided that I would like to at least note purchased and used amounts of fabric.
This week I bought fabric 1.5 yards to finish a baby quilt and I bought these brand spanking new charm packs of Moda’s new lines. I am SO excited to play with these!
I finished three Schnibble patterns (Miss Rosie’s Quilt Company) tops. I used backing fabric for three baby sized quilts….I used a yard of the fabric I bought.
I also gave away a fat quarter bundle to my niece along with LOTS of left overs from my Lily Pads quilt.
I LOVE my stash…it’s not too big. It’s not too small. At any given moment I can grab some fabric and start sewing a project. BUT, I don’t want to become overwhelmed by my fabric so I plan to start being a little more accountable and joining the quilters who give a weekly stash report over at Patchwork Times.

When I ventured on Judy’s page two years ago, I didn’t have a clue how I would figure out how much was in my stash. I was so relieved when I realized she was only doing a running total of in and out – my goal is to have more go out than in, so I can do this! And someday, maybe I’ll get to the point where I ust want to keep it balanced – but it will be a LONG time yet!
Welcome to the Stashbusting reports! They really are a good way to keep on track. Love the charm packs you picked out.
I think many of participating in the Stashbusting reports start at zero at the beginning of the year and just track in and out with the hopes of out is greater than in by the end of the year — at least that’s what I’m doing.
I cannot wait until tomorrow so that I can come home and see the new fabric!!!! I’m thinking sewing day on Wednesday? I don’t have to work that night so I could maybe stay a little later!
That’s a bit too obsessive for me! But have fun with it! ~karen
Thanks for the fabric – and fun…can’t wait to dig in and pick the patterns for the girls’ beds! I am trying not to be too overwhelmed!!
Welcome to the group! I have a spreadsheet made up that is easy to use to track your ins and outs if you are interested. I’d be happy to share.
