Some people don't count fabric as used until the quilt is totally done and some when the top is complete. I generally count fabric as used when it is made into a block, mostly just to see a little constant change in the numbers instead of waiting until the end of a project. With Bonnie Hunter's mystery Allietare, we were making parts of blocks like 4-patches and HSTs, so I didn't report any of my usage on that quilt yet. Now that the center of the quilt top is all together, I can subtract the 6.5 yards used in the quilt. All that's left to do on that is borders! I'll be sharing photos tomorrow on my design wall post.
I also used 3/8 yard making more 9-patches for the Ring Cycles quilt. There was no fabric added this week. My total for the year is no longer red!
Used this week: 6.875 yards
Used year to date: 9.0 yards
Stashed this week: 0.0 yards
Stashed year to date: 7.5 yards
Net year to date: 1.5 yards used
I am joining Kate at Life in Pieces in tracking the number of days each week that I spend at least 15 minutes quilting. The more days I quilt, the more quilts I can get done and the more fabric used. It turns out that over the past week I worked on five different quilt projects. Two of those are nearing completion!
15 MINUTE CHALLENGE:
January 17 - 23 7 for 7 days
January total 23 for 23 days
350 Block Challenge at Prairie Moon Quilts:
This week's block total: 38
