Stash Report Sunday - January 31, 2010

Used this Week:     8.25 yards
Used year to Date:  32.25 yards
Added this Week:    0 yards
Added Year to Date: 29.5 yards

Net Used for 2010:     2.75 yards

Any week we don't add fabric is a good week!  We made five more pillowcases and three blankets for Haiti.  Good stuff!

Someone asked how I determine how much fabric I've used. With the pillowcases and blankets it was easy. Each blanket was a simple one-yard cut of flannel. Each pillowcase uses just over a yard of fabric.

Judy keeps an Excel spreadsheet and tracks her yardage used as she goes. For me, even with a large quilt, I'm not counting it until it's done. That way I'm encouraged to get some of those UFOs out of bins and onto the sewing table.

Hop on over to Judy's blog for a look at how everyone else did this week.

Barb, The blankets for Haiti is being done through Project Linus. The national chapter was contacted by at least two organizations who have requested blankets and we have the specs on how they want us to make them. Our local chapter's goal is to make 1,000. We're meeting in February to box them up and send them according to the instructions given to Project Linus.
