Stash Report - Week #1, 2013 and a finish!!

Today, I finished a quilt I started the week before Christmas.
I call it my Holiday Lane Quilt.
 I was inspired by Jill Finley's Holiday Lane pillow pattern that she shared with us in November, 
for the Holiday Lane Pillow Blog Hop.
You can find the pillow pattern on Jill's website Jillily Studio's
I just modified the size of the houses to fit with the blocks I had made for the body of the quilt.
This is a generous lap quilt.
It measures 55 X 68 inches.
The fabric for the front is Count Down to Christmas by Sweetwater for Moda.
I won a fat quarter bundle of this fabric over a year ago,
 on Darlene's blog Quilting Daze,
when she had a sponsored giveaway from The Fat Quarter Shop
So now I have a quilt to match my Holiday Lane Pillow.
I hope you like it!!

I decided to keep track of my fabric use this year.
  Judy at Patchwork Times hosts the Stash Reports,
 and I'm joining her.
I will try to keep track of the fabric coming in and going out.
My husband says I need to join a quilter's anonymous group for my addiction. LOL!!!
But, I think I do quite well at using my fabric. 
I just tend to hold on to my fabric scraps a bit too much! LOL!!
So, here goes.....we will see how bad I am.

Used this Week: 8.5 yards
Used year to Date: 8.5 yards
Added this Week: 0 yards
Added Year to Date: 0 yards
Net Used for 2013: 8.5 yards

This was a good week!! 
Only stash fabric used for my Holiday Lane quilt.

What a happy holiday quilt, I just love it! Yeah, I'm not going to keep track. That's just dangerous, hehe. While setting up my new sewing room over the holidays, my son looked in and said "maybe you should go for a net negative fabric flow this year". ..quilt possibly he's right.
