Stash report - Week 2

Remember that fabric diet? It's a great idea in theory, but here's why it's not working for me.

I'm making a quilt. I decided that I love it so much that I'm going to make it into a queen sized bed quilt. But there are 3 fabrics that BUG me. The colors are right, but the prints are not. So I thought about it for a few days. Why am I going to spend all this time and money on a quilt that will always bug me because I didn't want to buy better fabric? So that's it. 

I know it's supposed to be challenging and inspire you to "make do" etc etc. At the end of the day, I want to be happy with what I make, not settle because I was trying to prove something to myself. So instead I am starting weekly stash reports that Julie. The hard part will be figuring out how much I'm using (13" here, 9" there...)

19.5 yards (my LQS was having a good sale!)

10 yards of Neptune (open to swapping) and 2 yards of Lizzy Dish (perfect for my Kitchen Swap)

15 yards of solids (yup, that's 5 yards of gray on top!). What SUCKS is that the nice Kona Tangerine solid somehow got stained in the wash, so I'll have to be very careful about what I use.

  1. Ha ha, when you fall off the wagon, you fall hard! :) I have no restraint when it comes to fabric diets so I completely sympathize. Actually, when I put myself on a diet, I find I want to buy EVEN MORE than if I weren't on a diet.

    Love your choices, by the way.
