Sunday Night Stash Report

I want to be more mindful of the amount of fabric coming in (and out, but mostly in) to my stash, so I’m going to give this “Stash Report” idea a spin.  I’m guesstimating what I’ve used in finished projects since the beginning of the year based on what I’ve blogged, so this is sort of a catch-up post.

  • Used this Week: 7.25 yards
    • 5.25 yards to make 5 pillowcases (3 for charity)
    • 2 yards to make cat bed covers (for charity)
  • Used year to Date: 31.75 yards
  • Added this Week: 16.75 yards
    • 5 yards for blue Swoon backing
    • 5 yards for purple Swoon backing
    • 4.5 yards for purple Swoon background fabric
    • 1 yard Hello Kitty fabric for Bloomer’s pillowcase
    • 1 yard Happy Birthday fabric for Boxer’s pillowcase
    • .25 (fat quarter for one of the Swoon quilts)
  • Added Year to Date: 19.75 yards
    • 1 yard light blue cotton from the remnant bin
    • 2 yards fleece for cat bed covers (for charity)
  • Net Used for 2012: 12 yards
    • Total Used for Charity: 11.5 yards (36% of total used)

I also want to track what I’m donating to charity – I don’t have a particular goal in mind for the percentage (over 10% maybe?), but wanted to see what it actually comes out to.  I’ve got the Furever Homes quilt coming up to add to the charitable crafting, as well as a twin-sized quilt for the Wellspring Living house and whatever smaller Project Linus ones I’m inspired to make. Of course, with the 3 king-sized quilts I want to make, too, that’ll shove that percentage in the other direction!

  1. Significant! I haven’t tracked in awhile. I probably should–I think it is useful. I just keep an eye on the size of the stacks overall. I do want to start doing some pillowcases, though. You’re inspirational!

  2. What Andi said….

    Good luck with this. I hope it doesn’t make quiltmaking less fun for you. Sarah from Stash Resolution was doing this, wasn’t she?
