Week 27 Stashbusting Report



Well, I feel like I am making a little more progress as far as fabric used is concerned . . . I used a total of 4 yards from 3 different fabrics to back a quilt, and boy, is that back going to be ugly (the picture doesn't do it justice, trust me) but I'm not worried because I plan on using it as a ground cover for picnics or at the beach. Currently, 95% of the fabrics in my stash are not big pieces, so trying to create yardage for backing without purchasing some is a challenge! I did have to purchase yardage for borders for a quilt and also fabric for an online swap, but it came in, and then I counted it out (with the exception of 1 yard as I bought a little extra . . .)
Fabric added this week: 4.5 yards
Total added: 105.029 yards
Fabric used this week: 8 yards
Total used: 94.666 yards

Net: -10.363 yards

This is my granddaughter Sophia who fell asleep in her highchair while I was loading the quilt on the longarm!

Good job being creative!

I recognize that cute little chair - my daughters have a swing in that fabric, and they still think they're little enough to swing in it!

Well, if you are piecing your backs, good for you!!! Personally, I like pieced backs!!! more interesting - gives them life and it made me laugh that you are going to use it for picnics and the like. At first I thought you were going to say as the dog bed!! i am glad it's going to be used for more fun things - although dogs do need a comfy thing to lay on too!! have a great stashbusting week!!!

Spoken, or written, like a true pioneer woman!

And what a sweet thing your granddaughter is!
