Stash Report Week 1 and Winners!

For a couple of reasons I've decided to play along with the weekly stash report hosted by Judy. First, I really want to know how much I'm buying and how much I'm using.  I thought about starting mid-way last year but decided to wait for 2011.  I also want to play along to sort of "keep myself in check" as to my fabric purchases as well as to make sure I'm using those pieces that I buy.  So...I added 3 yards of Riley Blake Domestic Diva ( finally had to get some of this...plan on using it for potholders, a runner, and some gifts for next Christmas).  I've also added 2 yards of the cream tonal background fabric from 12 Days of Christmas (not pictured)--this will be great to have to use with my 12 Days scraps, and I'm hoping it will also work with Kate's next line, Flurry! And finally, I picked up 3/4 yard of Echino's Fall 2010 Collection (Patchwork in Multi) by Etsuka Furuya--I'm going to use some of this for hexies and the rest for a Japanese-inspired quilt. So, nothing used...but 5.75 yards added for the week/year! I'm keeping a hopefully this will be easy to keep track of!

I've been stitching hexies today...and trying to decide if I want to put them together in flowers or in straight rows...this project is kind of evolving as I work on it!

And...for the winners from our LePetite parade...we have a few...

We have a great prize donated by  Cara Wilson, the wonderful quilter who designed our Prairie Point Christmas project.

It's a Layer Cake of Perennials by Kansas Troubles! And this prize will go to Joyce!

Quilter's Paradise has a $25 gift certificate for a mini shopping spree at their store...and this will go to Sandy L.

Quilt Taffy is giving a $10 gift certificate to use in their "sweet store" which will go to Tonya.

Donna at Bear Paw Quilts and more has

2 charm packs of Lily and Will by Bunny Hill which will go to Cardygirl. Congrats to everyone...a big "thank you" to our sponsors, and happy sewing everyone!

Congratualtions to the winners!
Love the hexagons!
For my stash I am planning to buy as little fabric as possible, since last year my stash only grew and grew.
I hope I can keep up ;o)

Hmmm...I might feel ill is I translated all of the incoming fabric on a spread sheet if I put the dollar amount next to it. Isn't it better to just see yardage amounts? :o) Best of luck.

Love your Soul Blossoms hexagons.

I keep thinking I should do the stash report, too, but I'm just concerned I'd spend a lot of time trying to figure up what I used. I'd rather be sewing! haha

Love your hexies. I would have been afraid to put all those together, but I really love them!

Congrats to all those lucky winners! You all always offer the best prizes.

How fun to keep track of your stash in such a detailed method.

Good luck with your stash record. I need to do the same thing, but I know it would be heavily skewed to the acquiring side and it makes me afraid LOL!

Sandie ~call me crazy said...

Oh I'm so excited! :-)

I'm not sure I would like to keep track of what goes in my stash~ what comes out could be fun though LOL

Cute hex's. Thanks to all the sponsors!
