Stash Report

I purchased 4 yards of fabric and 2 fat quarters. I used up 3 yards of fabric this week. I am backing quilts and finishing them. The stash is slowly dwindling. I think it has shrunk from 1 and 1/4 totes to one tote. I am noticing less and less large pieces, I think much of my stash now is scraps. I have some charm packs and coordinating yardage but I am not counting them in the stash as they were gifts. I can't wait to cut into some of them this next week.

I have made 40 of my Civil war diary quilt blocks. Here is another one I made yesterday. Love the stars!! After all the problems with the triangle blocks this one went together in one afternoon.

Here is a photo of my latest quilt. I need to add the binding yet. I pulled it off the frame last night. I am learning every time I use the new long arm. Still have a ways to go. Mom has her little sail boat wall hanging on the frame today. She gets to "drive" the machine today. I am going to do more stash busting!!

So, I guess you are all having fun with the new machine - congrats on using up the yardage. Soon it will be time to get some replacement fabric!
