Sunday Stash – Zooming Up

Although I switched from measuring and reporting on Net Used, I haven’t exactly been touting my Total Used yards either since I know I’ve been behind this year compared to previous years. Again, this is a reflection of a shift in what I’m sewing for, so it’s not catastrophic or anything dire, but it does make the spreadsheet look sad. For example:

My 2017 total used yardage has been below the minimum for every single year since 2012. You’ll notice, however, and giant spike at the end there – that reflects this week!  This week I finished a big quilt I’ve been working on for about a year, plus a smaller quilt that is a pattern sample for our July release at The Stitch TV Show.

  • Used this week:  27.5 yard
    • 22 yd for giant quilt
    • 1 yd for storage bag
    • 4.5 for Emilio pattern sample
  • Total Used Year to Date: 135 yards
  • Added this week: 0 yard
    • Woohoo!
  • YTD Used for Charity: 21.75 yards (16% of total used)

One thought on “Sunday Stash – Zooming Up

  1. I should remember to make storage bags for gift quilts. You mention it frequently and I never think of it when I am done with the sleeve.
