Sunday Stash March 11, 2017

No fabric out this week. I wasted the first part of the week getting over myself, but that’s a story for another post.
Fabric did come in, but not on purpose.
I had small group yesterday to work on charity quilts. One member had fabric from a friend of the family that passed. Most of it was dated and a lot was of questionable fiber content. I picked up some muslin and a stamped embroidery block. I hope I can get the creases out, but if not I will trace the pattern onto different fabric.
embroidery blockAnother member came with copy paper box full of fabric from a guild member that is destashing, but not part of our group. That box was current quilt shop quality fabric. Most of what I took went straight into my charity quilt fabric hoard since it went with things I already had. I did pick up a piece of black for me.
free fabricAs much as I hated to add fabric, I couldn’t pass up free. I thought I did good to limit what I took for my personal stash. It could have been a lot worse.
Fabric In: 2.5 yards
Fabric Out: 1.5 yards
Net Fabric Added: 1 yard
Quilt & embroidery spending: $15

    It is hard to pass up “free” fabric with the current fabric prices. You didn’t do very badly and still have lots of time to get back to the black side of the stash equation.

    I love that black.
    I actually had 2 yards in, but they immediately went to the out pile for a church group, so I’m not counting them.

    I wouldn’t be able to resist good quality free fabric either. Love the black fabric. And I hope you can get the wrinkles out of the embroidery block. That’s a pretty design.

    You did great! I’m not sure I could have resisted free fabric. You know, that black fabric so very pretty!

    I love that black fabric. In fact I have a pretty sizable chunk of it!

    I know how hard it is to pass up “free” fabric even when we really don’t need it right now. I hate to add it to my stash report too. I like that black fabric though and would have taken it too. lol

    Love the black fabric.
    I sewed the renaissance dress for Carri in a mad hurry. All I used to mark it was a piece of chalk to roughly mark it while she was wearing the duvet. LOL. She trust me but I saw her eyes, eyebrows up, thinking what the heck is she doing. I didn’t have time for a pattern. Just cut sew, recut, resew….I was happy with the result even though it was a rush job.
