This week I used 4.0 yards for a backing for a QOV. Vicky had donated the fabric but I’d added it to the stash last year so I’m counting it as a use. 5-1/2 yards were used as a backing for the patriotic stars I quilted. The top was made either in 2007 and since it was completely made and waiting to be quilted, I didn’t count that fabric. A bit over 1 yard was used for Taylor’s pillowcase and 1-3/4 yards were used for the borders on the Shadow Stars top I finished. I didn’t count the fabric I’m using in the swirly stars because I haven’t finished that top yet. It will get counted in next week’s report.
Nothing added this week!
Fabric Added this Week: 0 yards
Fabric Added Year to Date: 0 yards
Fabric Used this Week: 13 yards
Fabric Used Year to Date: 40.50 yards

Stash busting report posted, but in reality, it was a stash building report!
Kare Ybarra says
This week was much better as far as stash busted and projects well on their way to completion. Thanks Judy – this really is inspiring!
Wow, over 40 yards in two weeks. Way to go!
I hope I did it right this time. I’m surprised that when you keep track of the fabric you use how much it actually totals up to and how much more there is to use up. It’s really kind of scary.
Still batting zero, but at least I’m not in the hole!
You’re putting the rest of us to shame. Great start to the year!
Thanks for keeping us motivated, Judy! For me, it feels good just being organized and keeping track this year.
Thanks Judy! I have been enjoying reading your blog and making my own stash busting reports each week. I gave you a shout out on my blog to hopefully inspire some other quilters.
Still need to get some organizing done up in my studio but it feels so good to be back to sewing…. so good!

Well Judy it didn’t last long – but at least I’ve used more to date than I purchased. 😉
You are doing fantastic! I should get a few quilt tops quilted. I could get some good yardage from putting together the backs from my stash.
Okay, we are back to report and it’s great to see so many people working on their stashes and being creative!!! It gives me the energy I need to keep those batteries going and to just get it done!! And having alot of fun seeing what everyone is up to.
Thanks Judy for such a great place to come and report in at!! 🙂
I had a very strong week of piecing backings and finishing up borders. I hope to stay strong for this next week.
The progress was not as much as I had hoped, but I did make progress. This week I will be quilting and working on my own pattern samples.
Lofty goals on my part for the day….I’m still hoping to get my top at least pieced!

I’ll have to post later with my complete update as I am still sewing away on the quiltathon project.
I’ll have something to report next week as I will count what I used during the quiltathon.
Have a great week!

I posted my usage for week 2 – I am amazed at how well everyone is doing with this. Keep it up and use it up!
Yeah! One kit down, a BUNCH more to go… whoo hoo!
Sorry, Judy… left it on the wrong place 🙂 brain is tired….. But thanks for inspiring me to get a lot done this weekend and I’m busting my stash 🙂
Well, I didn’t add to the stash. . . but I didn’t use any. Hopefully I can start showing some depletion of the stash starting next week!
Diana Wilson says
I love that I have more going out than coming IN so far this year! Thanks for the inspiration Judy.
It should would work better if I actually got some sewing done.
I made a lot of progress this week which is part of my report but since I only count fabric when I finish a project I don’t focus as much on the finished number as much as whether I’m going to my stash first when I need fabric.
I think my YTD total is just 1.5 yards used but I’ve got a bunch of stash in projects in progress so I’m happy.

Since I do not have a blog I can’t connect to Mr. Linky. So….in this week = 5 yards. Out this week = 4 yards. Year to date = -1 yard. I enjoyed the quiltathon (Thanks Judy) and reading everyone’s reports for the quiltathon and stash busting. All the reports are terrific!
Just posted mine. Everyone is doing great!
Bonnie Stevens says
No progress the past week, but I am hopeful for this week ahead. There are so many inspiring blogs. If I would stop reading and go do some work, I might make progress. Hmmmmm.
