Stash Report Week 1

My thanks to Judy at Patchwork Times for inspiring me to work on my stash and all my UFO's

I am going to try to keep track of whay I buy versus what I use and see if I can deplete my stash in 2009. So far, I have bought more than I have used, but the year is just starting!

The quilt shop where I teach has started a new promotion. Mike is blindfolded and then pulls 13 bolts of fabric. These bolts are then on sale for the week at 30% off. Needless to say, Mike pulled 2 bolts I liked and so I bought some from each. 2 yards of a light fabric and 3 yards of a southwestern turtle fabric.

So my stashbusting for this week...

5 yards purchased
1 2/3 yards (90 wide muslin) used for backing

I think that almost makes me even for the week :)

You did good! It would be hard to be teaching at a quilt shop and not falling in love with EVERY bolt!

Good for you! I don't know how in the world you can even go into a quilt shop and leave without loads of fabric. I believe what your shop is doing could be considered cruel and unusual punishment for a stash buster!

Oh, sales are so hard to pass up, and I have to work hard at not impulsively buying up sale fabrics. I have to stay out of the LQS but that's hard to do when you teach there!

Boy, I think it would be tough to stashbust when you have all those lovely fabrics so close!

Oh my gosh! There is no way I could work in a quilt shop and not go severly in debt, let alone not bring home the entire store. You did good!
