stash report


Morning all, I don't  usually do a stash report because I usually work with scraps or pre-cuts so it would be hard to figure yardage. However this past week I decided some of my old Christmas fabric needed to go and in a big way. I had been making quilt as you go place mats but using 2 inch strips takes a while to use up yardage so I made pillow cases. Donna's mother is in a nursing home and they play Bingo on Fridays so a sent these 7 pillow cases there to be used as prizes. I hear they were a big success so I will make more.

Each pillow case uses 1 yard and 2 inches of fabric so for this week fabric used is 7 3/8 yard.

I do have to admit to 1 yard in, purchased to make a pillow case for my niece. Needed fabric to match
quilt she got at graduation.
