Stashbuster 1-30-11

Remember the Civil War quilt my husband asked me to make for him? And remember the 10+ yards I bought for said quilt last week at the big quilt show I attended? Well, I HAD to buy border fabric, right? Two yards out of the Hancock's of Paducah catalog--the fabric with the Civil War generals depicted on it. ? That's it!

The 2.5 yards I used was a vintage tablecloth my grandmother embroidered in the '50s. I cut it up to make a blouse/jacket. (See my Design Wall Monday post tomorrow!)
    Yardage purchased this week: 2
    Yardage purchased year to date: 17 yards
    Yardage used this week: 2.5 yards
    Yardage used year to date: 25.5
    Net used 2011: 8.5
Happy quilting!!

Still in the black at the end of January. That's a good start to 2011.

Great job. The fact that you can keep track is wonderful. I can't wait to see the Civil War quilt!!
