Stash Report: Week 3

3 weeks into 2009 and I still have not purchased any fabric, but this week I received some fabric gifts. Since I plan to report all fabric as it's busted, I will consider gifts of fabric to be additions to the stash. Thankfully I'm still on the plus side of the stashbusting totals :)

Note: The above photo is just some of the jelly rolls in my stash, I'm still trying to find the "perfect" jelly roll pattern.

Yesterday I had planned to cut some more fabric for my Superbowl Sunday project, but I messed up my back around the bottom of my left shoulderbalde and have not been able to get around too well since then.

Here's this week's report:

Fabric added this week: 4.75 yards
Fabric added year to date: 4.75 yards
Fabric used this week: 2.75 yards
Fabric used year to date: 10.25 yards
Net fabric busted: 5.5 yards

Today was the Band Booster Vera Bradley Bingo Fundraiser. I donated the quilt in this post to the raffle. We made nearly $1,000 on the raffles and I received alot of compliments on the quilt. The tickets were only on sale today and there were 211 people at the event. So not too bad for a day's work. I also won one of the bingo games and brought a lovely Very Bradley Raspberry Fizz Cargo Sling Purse home with me. I am soooooo excited because I am not the luckiest person when it comes to these games. YAY me!!!

Congrats on your big win! What a great idea for a band fundraiser. Our HS band is raising money for a trip to Hershey Park and my 8th grader is going to DC this spring. I might have to volunteer to make some raffle quilts!

Beth,
I too love jelly rolls. Have you looked at the book Jelly Roll Quilts? It has some great patterns using jelly rolls. Two of my quilting buddies have made almost all the quilts in the book. They're quilts are wonderful.

Congratulations on your win!
