Stash Buster Report Week 20

I need to find a better system for keeping up!

So as far as I can remember, since my last report (week 17) I've added 4.5 yards of fabric, mostly in fat quarter lengths, gifted 1/2 yard of fish fabric to Mary at Quilt Hollow, and used approximately 1 1/2 yds fabric making my table topper and it's accompanying table runner, finished last night:


(Oh, yeah, I need to count this in Jacquie's Spring to Finish challenge.)

There has to be a better system!

Totals:

Added past 3 weeks: 4.5 yds
Added year to date: 16.5 yards


Used/gifted past 3 weeks: 2 yards
Used/gifted year to date: 7.5 yds.

Net total: 9 yards in the red.

Besides Crazymomquilts's 9-patch one-a-day quilt-along, I have signed up again for the 4 Seasons Quilt Swap. Have you seen the project this time? Check it out! This should use up more stash in a hurry, especially if one does 2 batches of 20 blocks each. If you like the colorblock we're doing this time, there are about 20 spaces left, so feel free to sign up!

Sleep tight, all!

if Mightmom sent me a box of fabric, it would be GIFT and I wouldn't ccunt. I only count stash I have to BUY! So bring it on MightyMom!!
