Stash Report And Scrap Bags

The last stash report of the year, and what a stash year it was.
I used 1/3 yard of fabric finishing the bell UFO. I never did name that one although I’ve considered Bell Hell. The hand sewing onto the wood base was an experience I don’t care to repeat.
Yesterday I hit a couple of quilt shop sales with a friend. Whenever you’re doing something you shouldn’t, you should always invite a friend along to encourage and support your mischief.
I was doing OK until my friend pointed out the scrap bags. I don’t know why they appeal to me, but they do, and I do use them. I picked up one with a lot of neutrals in it to use on the Quilt Addicts BOM that starts January 15th. I also picked up some cuts from the remnant bin. The black is a staple for me that I use a lot. The neutrals will go in the BOM.

Total in, mostly from the scrap bags, 6 1/3 yards. Did you know a gallon ziplock bag holds over 4 yards of fabric?

Fabric In: 43.3 yards
Fabric Out: 21.4 yards
Net Fabric ADDED: 21.9 yards

    Just think on Friday, you get to start at zero again. I think that is what I enjoy about this time of year. I get to start at zero again. LOL

    I certainly like the idea of sharing mischief with a friend. Sounds like you had a good time and wow really 6-1/3 yards in a gallon size bag… Sandi

    Sounds like you have plans for most of what you brought home. It should go right back out. Good luck with your stash busting goals for 2016.
