Stash Busting Report Week #18

A good week for me as the batting arrived and I was able to quilt a few tops. That, of course, didn't stop me from adding fabric this week :) The added fabric has already been purposed for the back of top already pieced! My goal for next week is to add no fabric...zero...nada...zilch...cross my fingers...

Here is my report for this week:

  • fabric received in: 6 yards
  • fabric used: -16.5 yards
  • net fabric for week: -10.5 yards (used)

Net fabric year to date: -13 yards (used)

What I accomplished this week:

  • quilted three donation tops
  • bound two donation quilts
  • sewed units for blue and yellow Strip Twist
  • pieced Elvis checkerboard to a flimsy


Goals for next week:

  • bind third donation quilt
  • quilt and bind Elvis top
  • sew blue and yellow Strip Twist to a flimsy (this is a carryover)
  • start making a surprise birthday gift for a quilt-y friend

I decided to put the blue/yellow Strip Twist units on the back burner and let them simmer. It is my hope that I will be rejuvenated to sew them into a flimsy when I get them out again. In the mean time, LindaJ at Life with Quilts and a Busy Boy Kitty asked if I would write up how I had made the Checkerboard Border quilt from a few posts back. So I dug into the stash and come up with the Elvis quilt top. I took pictures along the way but haven't written a tutorial yet. Maybe that should be a goal for next week, eh? The Elvis quilt will be gifted to DD's music teacher in June.
