Stash Report March 20

We had a terrific storm last night and our electricity has been out until now so I couldn't post!

As I reported last week, my quilt guild's quilt show was this weekend. Since I won't be shopping until later today, I have ZERO additional fabric for this week! However, we are encouraged to "make our vendors happy" so we do like to buy from them and I intend to comply.

I quilted my UFO, completed by BOM and prepared applique leaves for my Civil War quilt so didn't use much fabric--only 1/4 yard for the binding for my UFO and 1/4 for the leaves. I don't use a double binding, only single, cutting 1 1/4" strips. I learned that in a Darlene Zimmerman finishing class. Most of my quilts are for show and won't get a lot of use so why struggle with double binding? Of course, if it's for a college kid or a baby or a quilt that will get a LOT of use and washing, double it up. Otherwise, save your fabric and make it easy on yourself, especially if you're doing a curvy or wavy edge you'll be cutting on the bias!

Stats:
Fabric added this week: 0
Fabric used this week: .5
Fabric added year to date: 55.25
Fabric used year to date: 51.75
Totals: -3.75

Great - you'll be out of the red in no time - even with your show purchases - LOL since you are such a prolific piecer.
