I got a lot accomplished this week. I used 15.25 yards this week:
- 7 yards on a the quilt I started Friday and will finish the top tomorrow!
- 2.5 yards for a quilt I finished up Thursday
- 6 yards for the backing on the LSU quilt.
I forgot to say last week that the fabric Vicky donated didn’t get added to my stash numbers and isn’t going to get added to the usage reports either. I have it in a separate stack and it will all be used for backings for donation quilts.
Here’s my numbers:
Fabric added this week – 0 yards
Fabric added year to date – 282 yards
Fabric used this week – 15.25 yards
Fabric used year to date – 314.25 yards
Net Used to Date – 32.25 yards
You know what occurred to me this week? There’s hardly a day that goes by that I don’t quilt — piece or quilt — I call it all quilting. I’ve used 314 yards this year. Just suppose that I spent $8/yard. I didn’t because I usually buy fabric on sale or order from Thousands of Bolts. But, just to have a number, I’ll say $8/yard. That means I’ve spent $2,512 on the fabric I’ve used this year. 250 days have passed this year so that means I’ve spent about $10.05/day on fabric. Does that seem right? I don’t know what I think about that number.
Will you share your stash report for this week with us?
