Stash Report - Week 2 2012

I did a little better this week than I did to kick off the year last week. First off on my list was to get some quilting done. I've had 4 quilts in the queue for a while now and had to get moving on them. First up was the memory quilt I am making with my friend Michele from her mom's old sweatshirts. I got it loaded with a very thin batting, but was still a little apprehensive about how the needle would like going through those thick layers. It turned out fine - I had a few skipped stitches near the end, but I think that had more to do with the age of the needle than with the layers. I took it to work day on Monday and got the binding attached as well, so now just need to sew it down and add the label. 

Next up was work day - Jack joined me and we were the first ones there (and the only ones for almost an hour!). Jack set to work getting his things set up while I got mine set up. 
After I got the binding on the quilt above, I set to put my blocks into a finished top for the quilt I am making for my friend who was deployed last year. It worked to my advantage that I had labelled the blocks well when I took them off the design wall, and they went together quickly. This was such an easy quilt to put together and I love the look of it. I just need to add the borders now. It is sitting on my cutting table just waiting for my attention. 
I also got the back cut for a top I finished a while ago and started on some clothes for Jenna's dolls. After I got home that night, I loaded up my mom's third Girl Scout quilt and got to work. I quilted it over two nights and got it back to her mid week. I think this is the last GS quilt that I will be quilting. 

Overall, it was a great week including a guild meeting and some late night sewing last night. I used a little stash in the process and moved along 5 projects. Here's my report for the week: 

Fabric added this week: 0 yards
Fabric used this week: 1 7/8 yards

Fabric added year to date: 5 3/8 yards
Fabric used year to date: 2 yards

Net fabric used: (3 7/8 yards) 
Here's hoping I get back into the black by month end!

Way to go on the quilting!!! I'm hoping to move a few things along this week (today mostly) and get some easier to quilt on the frame. :)
