Happy day to everyone!  Personally, I plan to celebrate by sewing.

Hancocks of Paducah had a batik sale last week.  The batiks were all so gorgeous I couldn’t decide on any.  I love to indulge in great, inexpensive batiks for quilt backs, and then, of course I find uses for the scraps.  🙂  I really don’t need any backs right now, but all these were also on sale.  Some oranges, some boy novelty prints for pillowcases, a baby panel, a diagonal navy and white stripe for bindings, some Christmas.  Because I don’t have enough Christmas fabric.  *Sigh*

I used 7.5 yards to make Scrappy Cabins 2.

This week:  + 15 yards,  – 7.5 yards
This year:  + 57.5 yards,  – 73.75 yards
Net fabric destashed  in 2015:  16.25 yards 

So, the numbers went backwards a little, but I know it will be better soon.  Those last two quilts feel particularly good because the tops were all from strings, using fabrics down to the last bit, and it was also fun to visit with fabrics from the past.  How are you doing with sewing up your stash?
