Stash Report Sunday 1/3/16

It's time for the first stash report of the new year. This is when we all start over with a clean slate for the year. Just like the past couple of years, I have two goals for my fabric stash in 2016:
1.  Use at least 100 yards of fabric.
2.  Use more fabric than I add.

I don't have any usage or additions to report this week. I have been working on Bonnie Hunter's Allietare mystery, but don't have any usage ready to be counted yet. I do have a few blocks put together, and I hope to have lots more to show on Bonnie's link-up tomorrow.

Kate over at Life in Pieces has started tracking the number of days each week that she manages to spend at least 15 minutes in her sewing room. She used to host the 15 Minute Challenge, and I found it very helpful in motivating me to get in a little bit of sewing time every day. Those little chunks of time can really add up to some significant progress on a quilt project, and sometimes the time turns into an hour or more of stitching. I will join her in tracking my days.

I have also been participating in the 350 Block Challenge at Prairie Moon Quilts for the past couple of years. Each month Shelly lets us know our goal for the number of blocks to make, and everyone reports in at the end of the month. Last time I checked, my total for 2015 was over 1200 blocks, and I still need to add up my total for December. I'm going to start including my block totals in my Sunday stash reports too.

  1. It's going to be a lovely QOV. I like how the color switch worked out.

  2. I also meant to add, glad that the 15 minute challenge was something that worked for you. I thought about resurrecting the linky party, but in the end decided that that was more than I could keep up with looking at where work is headed this year.
