I thought I was going to have an easy stash report…I thought it would be a nothing in, nothing out report. That didn’t happen. A package arrived from Whittles….with backing fabric…and a couple other fabrics.
There is three yards of the 108″ backing fabric and two bundles of fat quarters, each with 10 fat quarters….I guess the backing fabric should be counted as 8 yards of fabric.
Has anyone bought the 108″ backing fabric before? This is my second time purchasing it. So far, I am not a fan. The backing fabric seems thinner or not quite the same quality as quilt shop fabric. This is a Bernatex brand fabric. I don’t know what brand the other fabric I used was that I had used that 108″. Do the companies make a cheaper quality for backing or did I just not have the best experience with the two pieces I have had. I would love some suggestions or opinions if anyone has some. Leave a comment here and tell me what you think.
Back to my stash report….
Here are the official numbers.
Used this Week: 0 yards
Used year to Date: 205.5 yards
Added this Week: 13 yards
Added Year to Date: 191 yards
Gifted: 81 yards
Net Used for 2011: 13.5 Yards of store bought fabric…9.5 yards of recycled fabric….81 yards gifted.
I decided next year that I am going to add a new category. I made quite a few projects for Moda Bake Shop. They send me the fabric and I don’t purchase it. I want a category for fabric that I purchased and one for fabric that was given to me. My goal in keeping a stash report is to track spending and having the categories split would be helpful for me.
