Stash Report - August 26, 2012

It seems as though my "Summer of Done" project was a flop. I got a few quilts made but was hoping to have at least ten finished.

This QOV is off to Alycia. I promised her the pattern and then decided I should send a quilt along with the pattern. I love seeing the pictures Alycia shows on her blog. There is no greater feeling than seeing a quilt I made wrapped around one of our Heros, it is an honor to provide quilts for these men and women.

Saw this quilt being made on a You Tube from Missouri Star Quilt Company and had to make one. I found a Phenomenal Fall jelly roll without any lights or whites in it from Green Fairy Quilts which was just perfect. Used all the strips but one.

This one I am keeping - it will make a great snuggle quilt - finished at 72x80 before washing.

I am thinking ahead to next year's quilting goals, what I want to accomplish, how much fabric I might use from my stash, how much I might purchase, etc. I think my goal for 2013 is that there will be no goals! Subject to change, of course. 

Used YTD - 276.08 yards

Added YTD - 91 yards

Net Used YTD - 185.08 yards

Quilts finished in 2012 - 32

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 plus 2
3 - finish one already started quilt each month (have about 20 of these, some more than 6 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
