    Hey, Judy! Didn’t you have something a few months ago that involved cleaning out and organizing stashes/sewing rooms? People posted “before” pictures and the goal was to have it done by January 1 and then post “after” pictures?

    Great stash-busting!

    Whoa, you are the scrap busting queen! One question – what do you do with the backing leftovers? You know, the 4-6″ of overhang on each side? Just curious. Hope you and Vince enjoy Valentine’s Day!!

      I cut it off and trim it down to the largest possible squares or strips I can get. If it’s fabric I’ll use in my quilts (sometimes my backing fabrics are ugly), I’ll put them in the scrap boxes. If it’s ugly fabric, it goes in a drawer and I use those squares to make dog quilts.

    Happy Valentine’s Day to you too Judy! I owned a flowershop for several years and that ruined it for me!!! LOL I’m just thankful I don’t have to go in to work today and deal with all the men panicking at the last minute!!!! 😀

    Excellent busting Judy! One measly yard was used here since I’m in the midst of working on existing projects. But at least there was no more shopping!

    Great job Judy of using so much this week. My totals are not great — yet! I’m in the midst of piecing or starting to quilt some of my things, but won’t count the fabric as busted until they are finished. My week 7 totals:

    Used this Week: 1.25 yards (pillowcase & 2 blocks)
    Used year to Date: 19.54yards
    Added this Week: 0 yards
    Added Year to Date: 3.25 yards
    Net Used for 2010: 16.29yards

    Hope to have a better report next week. Dar
