Stash report, Week 1

I am starting my second year of a no buy fabric diet. I did not buy much fabric last year but I also did not get much finished or used up. This will be a better year for using my stash. I have been looking at my scraps and can see a distinct pattern forming. I have what I call my ugly fabric that has been cut into 2.5" strips and now are sub cut into squares. This is fabric from my dark, country phase. It won't seem so ugly when it has been cut into much smaller pieces. Bigger pieces of my ugly fabric will work wonders as pieced backs.

I am using my bright, happy scraps to make baby quilts for our guild's charity project, Kid's Komforts. I want to make one quilt a month. I have decided on the pattern and I need 504 blocks to make 12 quilts.

I have decided that I will not count fabric in my totals until the project is completed finished. So this week's numbers are really good.

Used this Week:  0 yards
Used year to Date:  0 yards
Added this Week: 0 yards
Added Year to Date: 0 yards
Net Used for 2014:  0 yards

Please check out Patchwork Times  to see how everyone else is fairing this early in the year.

In stitches,
