Week 4 - Stash Report

I think all quilters at some point look at their stashes and think ... oh my goodness, where did all that fabric come from and what in the world am I going to do with it all. Well ... I got to that point last year and joined Judy's Stash Busting Challenge and I am participating in Judy's Stash Busting Challenge for this year too. I have so many UFOs on my shelves and enough fabric to make lots and lots of finished project. This year is going to be another good year to complete UFOs and bust some stash. If you are in the same mindset - come join in and see how well you do this year. CHECK-OUT how the rest of the stash busters are doing.
This was another good week, any amount busted is a good week right? I sold/swapped out some fabric and also made some swap blocks like these .... and working on some others (will post photos later maybe)

Fabric usage report ....
Fabric Added this Week: 0 yards
Fabric Added Year to Date: 4 yards
Fabric Used this Week: 1 yards
Fabric gifted/sold this week: 10 yards
Fabric Out Year to Date: 29.5 yards (woohoo ... we are rolling now!)

Thread usage report --I have over 51 spools of thread on hand - I hope to use half of these this year. I know I will have to add white and beige here and there to do certain blocks but plan on using those oddies for piecing backing and my string and crumb blocks.
Spools added this week: 0 spools
Spools used this week: 1 spool
Total Spools used to Date: 2 spools
Total Spools bought to Date: 2 spools

until next time ... happy quilting

That is one of my favorite blocks. I think it's very classy looking. I use up lots of odd thread and bobbins for my backings and strings too. Good job on your numbers.
As far as learning to knit, do like I did and get yourself a book for teaching children to knit. Lots of good pictures and easy to follow instructions.

Cute blocks...Ohio Stars are one of my favorites! Great job on the stash busting, you're making great progress. I know that point you mentioned at the beginning of your post. I sometimes think, "hey, I don't have all that much fabric." then I look around and realize "Oh yes I do!" *lol* I haven't bought any fabric this year yet myself and am making a real effort to use what I have on hand. Out with the old, then I can move on with the new...kind of the theme of the year for me :D Hope you have a great day!!
