Stash Report 6/30/13
I commited to making Esther' Love Entwined coverlet, so have been going through my stash. I did need to buy 8 yards of background. If I'd owned a lot of neutrals I'd have pieced it, but I don't. Since I will begin immediately to use it, I'm not going to count it as new in my stash. That's one of the ways I handle purchases. If it's just impulse purchase or enhancement with no project in sight, then I count it. So in digging through my stash I realized I need a shelf of just my batiks so I can see what I have. The rest of the quilt will be from that pile. Right now I have them all in a drawer and they're such a jumble, I don't know what I have. It made me clear a bookcase shelf and start my organizing. What with making a block, giving a yard as donation and pulling for the new quilt, I've managed to reduce my stash by 4.5 yards. Oh and here is the quilt top I made for St Anne's - I finished all my goals for June - what a surprise! It's a frayed edge top and I just have to put it together. Another member will clip it and wash it before we give it to some first time mother.
