Stash Report - July 8, 2012

While reading blogs last week I came across "Julie K Quilts" request for some strings. I have A LOT of strings and decided to share some. 

The brown box is a 16 inch by 16 inch by 16 inch and packed solid with strings.
That boxed weighed just over 20 pounds.  According to the Internet one pound of fabric equals 3 yards. I don't think there was 60 yards in that box so I am only going to count it as 10 yards out. I sent her just under half of my strings.


Finally, I have my first "Summer of Done" quilt finished!



All "Summer of Done" quilts are going to be super easy to make.  This one sure was easy and it looks great. I am sure it will find the perfect home in Utah!

Used since last post - 15.63 yards
Used YTD - 240.35 yards

Added since last post - 0
Added YTD - 87 yards

Net Used YTD - 153.35 yards

Quilts finished in 2012 - 26

My goals for 2012 are simple~
1 - make one QOV each month. 
Jan  Feb  Mar  Apr  May  June  July  Aug  Sept  Oct  Nov  Dec
2 - make one quilt for Ronald McDonald's House each month
Jan  Feb  Mar  Apr  May  June  July  Aug  Sept  Oct  Nov  Dec
3 - finish one already started quilt each month (have about 20 of these, some more than 3 years old)
Jan  Feb  Mar  Apr  May  June  July  Aug  Sept  Oct  Nov  Dec
4 - if I complete the above 3 goals each month I can start one new quilt
1 - 2 - 3
