Stash report

I finished another quilt! The quilting and the binding of the Hole in the Barn Door (or Churn Dash-the pattern is the same and I've used it interchangeably with this quilt; each time forgetting completely that I had ever called it by the other name or even that the patterns are the same) is finished. I used a wool batt by Hobbs and am very pleased with the loft. I did overall freehand feathers and love the way the quilting looks on the back. Now we just need to sleep under it in hot weather and cold.. won't be very hard since it's winter here again but I'm sure it will be summer again in a couple of days. :P I'm hoping my husband will LOVE the weight of it since he can't always handle the weight of a cotton quilt on his foot.
stash report
in: 3 yards for a commissioned duvet cover edge
out: 13. 6 yards I simplified my counting; (I think I read about it on Bonnie's site but it may have been Judy's. If someone tells me which is correct I'll fix this.) Figure out the yardage for the back, add 25% to that measurement for the front, add the binding. Done.

total year to date
in: 6.68
out: 59.4

I LOVE adding the yardage of a whole quilt to my total!

Wow, you're doing GREAT with your stashbusting numbers!

Love that quilting! I've never used wool batting before, myself. Nice to read about it.

That's an easy way to count fabric used in a quilt top, but my first thought was that 25% is low. Maybe that's just wishful thinking on my part! LOL. Your numbers are fabulous!
