Another good week for stash busting! This just motivates me to keep going. I've given some thought as to whether or not I want to continue these reports next year and the answer is an emphatic yes! I know I would have bought more and used less if I hadn't been keeping track of the details.
I did buy some fabric this week. In particular I needed some more fabric to finish the Nestled in the Branches quilt I started at the quilt retreat. The fabric is from JoAnns and it's been over a year since I bought the original batch so I was a little concerned if they still carried it. It's from their Legacy Studio collection of fabrics. Well, I was fortunate to find enough of both fabrics I needed. I bought a total of 2.5 yards between them.

Now on to what I used this week. I only finished 1 quilt top, Twisted Rope, but it is definitely the largest one I've ever made! 112" square. I used 14.5 yards for this top! Wow! That's a lot of fabric. Here's a picture of the quilt laying on top of LeeAnn's bed. She's the one I'm making the quilt for.

Wow! I've finally topped the 400 yard mark. That feels like quite an accomplishment!
