How’d you do this week?
Are you happy with your efforts so far this year? If not, do you know why? I know I could’ve done better and mostly my downfall has been good, quilt shop quality fabric I found on sale. I just can’t beat myself up over adding name brand, quality fabrics for $4 – $6/yard.
I added nothing and I used 17.50 yards! Next week I will get into the positive territory probably for the fisrt time this year. If I quilt a couple of my own tops, I can go through some yardage for the backings and that will boost my numbers greatly! Here’s my report!
Fabric added this week – 0 yards
Fabric added year to date – 282 yards
Fabric used this week – 17.50 yards
Fabric used year to date – 271.50 yards
Net Used to Date – <10.5 yards>
Someone asked me last week how I keep up with my yardage use. I keep a little pad by my cutting table and I write down what I use. When I cut fabric for a top, I write down the total fabric required for the top and then if I don’t finish the top during the week, I guess at whether I’m 1/4 or 2/3 or 3/4 or whatever percentage done with the top and then I just used that percentage of the total. I’m not worried about being 100% correct down to the inches — just getting close. On my pad this week, you might can see that I have 1 yard down for the Scrappy Stars. They were almost all made last week but I had a few more that went on this week’s numbers. I finished the tops for both Gratitude and Winter Break.
