Stashbusting Report

Finished quilting and binding this quilt today. It is a signature quilt for a young man (age 14) who is going through some serious medical procedures. He is having open heart surgery tomorrow morning, and this is for him to take with him and offer comfort while he is in hospital. Your prayers and well wishes would be much appreciated for Jordan.

That is Shiner (blue healer) checking out the quilt, and wondering who is standing behind that quilt holding it up!

Not sure how to count donated fabric... hmmmm. A friend of mine left 2 boxes of 'pretty good' fabric. She knows I love doing scrap quilts and she was cleaning out to make room for new stuff. Since she is down-sizing, and moving to a smaller place her sewing area is going to be a bit more cramped. Most of the fabric is older, and I have already cut it into smaller scrap size pieces

Fabric added this week: 3 yards (plus 2 boxes - about 50 pounds???)
Fabric added year to date: 3 yards
Fabric used this week: 3 yards
Fabric used year to date: 9 yards
Net fabric busted: 6 yards

Any thoughts on how to count fabric that immediately gets cut into 2", 2.5" and 3.5" strips? Do I count it as incoming until it is cut up, and outgoing when I use it? Do you count strips out of the scrap bins???

I don't think you need to count fabric that comes in and then straight out at all. Since it never actually hit your stash it never officially became stash.
