It is amazing how much of your stash you use when you make backing for quilts.  Last week I made 2 backings for quilts of valor quilts so my numbers used look good plus I cut out a couple of things.  However, Angela at was having a sale and how could I resist?  It was buy one, get one yard and this is what I added.  Surprised aren't you that it's red, white, and blue?

Used this week:  18.625 yards
Used this year to date in 2012:  156.375 yards
Added this week:  13.625 yards
Added this year to date in 2012:  133.375 yards
Net used:  22.625 yards

How is your stash busing coming along?  Click on over to and see how others are doing.


  1. You are right, backing do eat up yardage. Thus, I try to find my backings on sale or piece various yardage together for a back to make it more economical.

  2. Sweet fabrics. Hard to resist a sale like that.

  3. You are still in the black even with your new stuff, which is gorgeous.


Your comments make my day. I love to hear what you have to say. Please leave me a comment.
