Stash Report October 28, 2012

The pattern for this quilt was found here - and I just knew I would make it someday.

The pattern called for 1.5 inch squares and strips, since I had an abundance of 2.5 inch squares and strips my quilt turned out huge, it finished at 113 inches square before washing.  I used white with black dots for the cornerstones and a black with white dots for the binding. Another quilt that was easy to piece. All types and colors of scraps went into this quilt.

The quilt isn't as crooked as it looks, my hanging job was off.  I used 23.96 yards, including the back and binding. This quilt is off to live with a very good friend.

This next quilt is going to Ronald's house. It is 47 inches square. I had a bunch of leftover 2 x 3.5 blue strips and paired it with some orange pieces. Luckily I had the perfect fabric for the border. This is a bright and cheery quilt.

Used - 397.27 yards

Added - 94 yards 

Net Used YTD - 303.27 yards

Quilts finished in 2012 - 42

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 3

3 - finish one already started quilt each month 
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

Love the orange and blue quilt. In my world, that's a classic color combo.

Beauiful quilts. I really like the orange and blue one, brights are my all time favorite. You've had a great stash busting year!

Have you noticed your stash getting smaller? You've used so much this year. It would be such a shame to see that wooden shelf get empty.
