Stash Report - Week 14

Well, Judy fell off the wagon this week and so did I! It was actually a good week for both busting and adding to the stash. I started off the week with a day home with a sick little girl, so I spent a lot of the day sewing while she was swimming. I added binding to three quilts (one baby, two wall), and pulled fabric for another baby quilt - a panel I bought a long time ago. I quilted it up this week too and found binding for it but haven't had a chance to prep it and put it on yet. 
After all that good work at the beginning of the week, I headed over to the International Quilt Festival in Cincinnati, OH with a van full of friends. I was so good on the first day and only bought two things - both presents for other people! On the second day, I bought a lot more....everything which is in the picture below! 
The red fabric (4 yards!) is a backing for a quilt I am working on for my sister in law. It is an on and off project that I am doing when I have a sewing day, so it might not be busted soon but I have a specific purpose for it. The layer cake and the little 2.5" square packets were on sale at The Fabric Shack and I just couldn't pass them up. I will make up at least two of the square packets for my guild small quilt auction. The blue piece in the back is for a baby gift (a fabric book), and the purple batik is to make a cover for my new iPad, which also arrived this weekend. I also added 4 patterns (1 in a kit form) to my pattern stash -- yikes! 

Added this week: 10 1/4 yards
Used this week: 3 1/8 yards

Added year to date: 18 5/8 yards
Used year to date: 25 1/2 yards

Net fabric used: 6 7/8 yards (I am pleasantly surprised that I am still in the black!)

Patterns added/used this week: 3/0
Net patterns used year to date: -3

I guess I better sign off this computer and get working on finishing up some projects so I can bust some more stash!!

Isn't if fun to finish a few things so you don't feel guilty about purchasing more...Looks like you found a great balance!

Way to go! Although, I am a little shocked that you didn't buy any more quilting thread... I was very tempted by the Superior booth!

Looks like you got lots of nice treasures. Sorry I missed you guys. We were there Friday and Saturday and I'm just getting ready to do my post.

Great 'loot'! It will all find a perfect project to be used in!
