Sunday Stash - Uh, I Can Explain

Grand Illusion step 1So, a big old Black Friday Sew In and most of my time sewing was spent making 280 HSTs and then 100 units for the Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt for Bonnie Hunter. Of course that doesn’t count towards stash usage the way I track since it’s not in a finished quilt!

I also made 9 more postcards since I had batting scraps leftover from the bowl cozies, so that helped ooch my usage up. And I have my earlier week’s usage, too, from the bunting and the electronics organizer.

Festive TablerunnerI also made a tablerunner using a pattern I found on Craftsy. It uses 2 jelly roll strips of red and 2 of green, and several more of white for the background.  It goes together quickly, so if you need a quick gift for the holidays, I’d recommend the pattern.  Mine is going into a gift swap at work.

Of course, all that usage was relatively negated by some serious yardage procured at the Black Friday sale at my LQS. A layer cake, a jelly roll, some FQs… the list goes on. Really, I’m doing it to shop local and support the economy! Anyway, I’m not so close to net 200 yards used as a result.

  • Used this Week: 4.25 yards
    • 0.5 yd for electronics organizer
    • 0.25 yd for more postcards
    • 2 yd for tablerunner
    • 0.5 yd for a gift for someone
    • 0.5 yd for bowl cozies
    • 0.5 yd for bunting
  • Used year to Date: 321 yards
  • Added this Week: 10 yards
    • 10 yards various fabric for stash
  • Net Used for 2014: 193.25 yards
  • YTD Used for Charity: 116.25 yards (36% of total used)

  1. The year isn’t over until the stroke of midnight on December 31, and you have heard the fat lady sing!! Well that was I was told as I was growing up, here in Australia.
    Keep trying someone has to do it for the rest of us.

  2. Love your colour scheme for the Bonnie Hunter quilt. I’ve never attempted one of hers, but they always turn out stunning.

  3. I didn’t get to post my stash usage this week. Computer connection issues whilst swanning around central Australia. Good to see your projects on the go. I might dip into Bonnie Hunter’s mystery quilt yet… but might not also! Great job on what you have accomplished

  4. I would love it if you would comment on those mad diamond units from Grand Illusion #2. I was thinking of doing the mystery quilt until I saw those.
