Stash Report 5.2.10

My celebration continues for a bit while I write this stash report. I get to add in just a bit more fabric because I cannot multiply!!! When figuring the number of squares I needed for this backing, I remembered why I use a calculator. Sometimes simple math gets the better of me. (See Taylor, this is why it is so important to do well in math!)

While I was piecing the blocks together into rows, for some reason I stopped at 4 rows-needed 7 rows of 9 blocks-and counted my remaining blocks. I was seriously short! So I went to the backing bin, pulled out a couple more fabrics and cut more 10 1/2" squares, arranged the blocks into rows and continues on like I had planned it from the beginning. You would have never known if I hadn't admitted it here!! Or maybe you would have.

Here is this weeks exciting stash report!

There's that math thing again! I'm awful in simple math. Can figure compound interest in my head, but the simple stuff gets me. I have a calculator practically attached to my hand! The quilt is looking good! Way to dive into the stash!

isn't it funny to come back to what you were doing, and think--where did I get THAT figure from??!!
