Stash Report -- October 31

This has been an eventful week.  Lots of movement in the stash department.

First, the good news.  I finished my Project Linus quilt and used 3 yards.  Second, I finished three tops for Alycia and QOV and used up 11.33 yards.

I had some fabric in, though.  I bought 3.75 yards to use in the remaining QOV quilts that I have planned.  It was on sale half off.

I also bought 9 yards of fabric for the Layer Cake Quilt Along.  I actually won the layer cake in an online giveaway, so I bought fabric to coordinate with it, but it was all on sale half off, too!  WOO HOO!

So, all this means my numbers are about a wash...BUT...I'm SO proud of myself because all the purchases I made were for a specific purchase.  I just bought what I needed and no more.

AND...I just spent the entire day Saturday on a bus tour of five different quilt shops and I didn't buy ANY fabric for me!  YEAH ME!

So, without further ado, here are my numbers.

Fabric in: 12.75 yards
Fabric out: 14.33 yards
Total fabric in: 36.42
Total fabric out: 66.08
Fabric used: 29.66

I'm not sure that I'm going to be able to meet my goal OK, I'm fairly sure I won't meet my goal of 300 yards busted and 100 yards net used, but I guess I'll just keep plugging along.

Make sure you check out Judy's blog to see how everyone else did this week.

I am like you I am purchasing but getting way more selective on what I buy. I rarely buy something anymore without a purpose and try to keep the buying to the next maybe 2 or 3 projects I am going to make.

Congratulations on not buying anything on that shop hop. I think you did great. The purpose of this whole exercise is to shop our stash first and then buy what you need. You are in the black and doing very well.

Ah, you are purchasing with a doable purpose in mind. That is a great achievement. there is always next year to reach for the starts/goal.

YOu are brave going on a shop hop when you are trying not to buy fabric. Not sure I could resist the temptation. You out still exceeded your in, so still all good.

I'm doing the Layer Cake Quilt Along too. I was able to shop my stash for all of it, though I'm still not thrilled with my "neutral". But I'm trying so hard not to buy anything for this one and use what I've already got.

Keep on going - you had a great week! I ahve been thinking of joining the layer cake quilt along as well, but want to use fabric from my stash and not buy a layer cake.
