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 spreadsheet...so 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!
