Week 9 Stash Report

These are the blocks my small quilting group is working on for a quilt to donate to the Sutter Hospital Breast Cancer Quilt Auction. Held once every 3 years, a couple hundred quilts are donated and displayed for a silent auction for the month of October in the halls of the 5-story cancer center in Sacramento, California. The live auction is the first Saturday of November and over $100,000 is raised for this worthy cause.

The blocks you see here will be cut in 4 equal pieces and rearranged into new blocks before being assembled into a quilt. I'll show it to you in September before it's donated to the auction. We call it "Hearts for Hope".

So this week I used 1.5 yards for this project, 2 yards for the Civil War quilt I'm working on and .25 yd for the BOM (from Bunny Hills).

I also bought 5.25 yards of fabric for said projects--(boy it's hard to be good on this stash report stuff!!)

Fabric purchased this week: 5.25
Fabric purchased year to date: 55.25 yards
Fabric used this week: 3.75 yards
Fabric used year to date: 45.75 yards
Net used: -9.75 yards

So, how did you do on Judy's stash report blog?

It is hard to be good! Obviously, I'm not doing well. I keep needing stuff. lol Your heart blocks are pretty, and if I'm right about how they will be cut and re-pieced, it's going to be spectacular.

Great progress. LOVE THE HEART QUILT! This is not the strip quilt we are working on for spring chicks is it? I am still working at cleaning up my area (unfinished projects)as I still need to move stuff back into rooms after the floors were done. Found so many projects that I am overwhelmed!!
