Stash Report – March 28, 2010

Nothing in this week, used a little.

Used this Week:  9.5 yards
Used year to Date: 197.5 yards
Added this Week: 0 yards
Added Year to Date: 36 yards
Net Used for 2010:  161.5 yards

How’d you do this week? Still committed to busting the stash? Getting harder as the year progresses? Starting to notice a dent in the stash?


  1. 1


    Well done, Judy! You’ve used of *lot* of fabric so far this year! I had a good week and got to use up several floral fabrics from my stash that were still pretty but just not my favourites anymore. 🙂

  2. 2


    Wow you have used a lot of fabric. I have a net used of 26 yards and even that relatively small amount I can see as I don’t have to jam the fabric on my shelves quite as much.

    Used a little? I too used 9.5 and I thought that was monumental. I find I am truly making a dent. In fact I have had to replenish my 30’s fabric. Maybe I should try using up stuff I am tired of.

    About the only dent I see on my shelves is the half empty crate of Birthday FQs from the swap I’m hosting — and I don’t get to count those. April is the semi-annual bolt sale at my favorite quilt shop and I’m already planning my purchases. Backing and binding for a quilt I’m nearly finished – but only if there’s something on the clearance rack, or if I’ve finished the top before the end of the sale. Fabric for a class I’m taking in May and a length of muslin for my 30’s fabric Sylvia’s Bridal Fabric.

    Commited? Yes!

    Getting harder? It will when spring market happens!

    Noticing a dent? No. I’m beginning to think there will never be any dents in my stash room. But hope springs eternal.

    Look at your numbers! Wow, you’re making it happen! Good for you!

    I agree with Penny: 9.5 is not a little – at least in my world, but that may just be us weekend warriors? Thanks for hosting the stash report – got to get my act & numbers together…

    Judy, your used totals for 3 months have already reached what I set as my goals for the year! Good going. I’m not giving up though. I had to hurry up this morning and make a pillowcase in order to use ANY this week. This reporting does help though. My excuse (again) I’ve been busy quilting for others so their UFO’s get finished.
