Stash Report - April 2016

April was a steady but quiet month for me. I spent a the first part of it helping my neighbor and great friend pack up her house and get ready for a move to Orlando, and we had to race to finish watching Friday Night Lights on Netflix in the last few days before she left, so I spent way more time stitching than sewing or quilting this month, however, I did have a little stash usage.

I finished quilting my APQ Challenge top for April and made the binding (the top and back were already counted), and then on a whim I signed up for a guild workshop with Terry Kramzar. It was a great workshop on Quilting in Layers and I really enjoyed it. I started with three rolls of batiks and a handful of other fabrics and wound up using 15 fat eighths of the batiks to put my top together.

That's all for this month - a little time piecing, a little time quilting, and a new skill learned. 

Fabric added this month: 0 yards
Fabric used this month: 2 1/4 yards

Fabric added year to date: 3 5/8 yards
Fabric used year to date: 24 1/4 yards

Net fabric used: 20 5/8 yards

Hope you had a great April with your stash!

It sounds like you will miss your neighbor, Jennifer! My neighbor and best friend moved to Chicago 9 years ago and it just hasn't been the same since she's been gone. At least it is easy to keep in touch these days.

I enjoyed your quilt updates :) Hope May will be a good month for you and your family!
