A UFO Finished and Stash Report!!

Well I have finished my first UFO of the year!! My sailboat quilt will soon be hanging in my office!!

I also quilted my valances and just need to bind them and then I can hang them in the dining room!!

Here's my stash report for the week:

  • I used 3 yards of fabric to finish the blocks, sash, border and bind the quilt. I also used 2 yards of wide muslin for the backing. So that's 5 yards out of the stash permanently!!!

  • I bought 8 FQs and 2 yards of Hawaiian fabric for a wedding gift. This fabric will not sit in the stash as it has an intended purpose and was only purchased because I have no Hawaiian fabric in mty stash. I needed the Hawaiian fabrics for a wedding gift for a friend that will be moving to Hawaii in July. The wedding is May 11th.

Here are my goals for the coming week:

  • Bind the valances

  • Cut out the Hawaiian fabrics for the wedding quilt

  • Choose and prepare projects for guild retreat in April

  • Avoid buying fabrics for the stash!!!

Wish me luck!

Way to go, Beth! What a great feeling when you can cross one of the UFOs off of your list. The sailboat quilt is wonderful and will sure look nice hanging on your wall.
