Stash Report Sunday 7/3/16

It's hard to believe that we are past the half-way point for 2016. This seems like a good time to evaluate my stash-busting efforts so far this year. My fabric goals for the year are the same as they have been for the last three years--use at least 100 yards of fabric, and use more than I add to the stash. I just looked back at my end-of-the-year stash reports from the last 3 years. 2015 was the only year where I was successful at both goals, using 167 yards and adding 150. I am currently on track to finish in the black for this year, but far behind last year's total usage. It's time for a few finishes!

I did not add any fabric this week, and used some on my Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks, plus I even gave some away. (That was hard for me!) Here are my current RSC blocks.

I am joining Kate at Life in Pieces in tracking the number of days each week that I spend at least 15 minutes quilting. It was a good week for getting time in the sewing room every single day.

15 Minute Challenge:  
June 26 - July 2            7 of 7 days
Year to date          171 of 184 days

  1. Those are some cute blocks. Don't think I've ever seen them before. I have confidence that you will use more than you stash for the year. You are heading in the right direction.

  2. Beautiful RSC blocks! That's going to be a very colorful quilt when it's all done. You've done so well at finding those 15 minutes every day. You are going to have an excellent year if you keep up like this.
