The unofficial Stash Report

Last week I did a little shopping.  Okay, I did a lot of shopping.  The last time a friend and I headed to the LQS, we arrived to a sign saying that they were closed for a couple weeks due to the holiday season.  This time, that wasn’t a problem. 
On the list:
The Brown Quilt—For an event in June
Dark Brown Border fabric (3 yds + more for binding)
Light Brown Border fabric (1 3/8 yds)
Purchased: 5 yds of the Dark Brown & 3 yds of the Light Brown
Here is the dark & light with a small section of the quilt center showing.
Next, the Bright Quilt, based on Diamond Delight found in Strip Clubbing by Cozy Quilt Designs.
On the list:
Background Fabric 3 7/8 yds and 3/4 yds for the binding.
Additional fabric: more variety needed
Purchased: 5 yds of Deep purple for border and binding
6—1/4 yd cuts for variety
Here are the strip sets that are going with the border and additional fabrics.

The blue is something that I will use in a scrap quilt as a border.  The next two are cuts that might end up in the Diamond Delight.  The last 2 are batiks.  The green/brown one was a possible border for “The Brown Quilt”.  The new one above goes much better, but with several green batiks in the stash, a quilt is just asking to leave the stash and find a home.
Total income yardage:  28.5
This is definitely not my typical style.  My motto is use what you have, buy what you need.  Most of this I needed!

Happy Quilting,
Just Another Quilter


  1. What a haul! And all of those fabrics are really, really pretty! I particularly like the blues and browns in the first picture. ---"Love"

  2. Nice fabrics to play with. I was determined to have a no buy for my stash until at least three UFO projects are completed finished. However, I seem to have been buying fabrics like crazy, but all are for two specific projects which I had nothing that would work well in my stash. Well one project I pulled some stash, but had to buy more but this project takes 27 different purples. I hate purple. LOL

  3. I have vowed to only buy what I need to finish projects that I already have. So far I've been good. LOL Of course I have been inside most of January. ;)

  4. I think it's marvellous that you and a friend have a good healthy shopping trip to the LQS. You mostly bought fabric needed and there is a terrific variety. Watching them transform into quilts will be a pleasure indeed.

  5. Lots of shopping is always fun. And if you have a plan for everything, it's all good. I can't wait to see what it all turns into. I know it will be beautiful but enjoy seeing the photos!

  6. Good day! I simply want to give you a big thumbs up for the great
    information you've got right here on this post. I will be coming back to your site for more soon.
