Stash Report Sunday 8/21/16

I was hopeful that I would be able to get my stash numbers back into the black this week because there would be 6 yards counted as used for a recently-finished quilt top. Then I received a package with my winnings from a giveaway held by Sally who blogs at The Objects of Design. My prize was this jelly roll of Kaffe Fassett fabrics.  

I love the prints and the color combos of Kaffe's prints, but I'm never quite sure how to use them effectively, so I don't tend to buy them very often. Thanks to Sally for giving me a chance to play around with this beautiful group of fabrics!


     Used last week:               6.50 yards     
Used year to date:        61.875 yards

Stashed last week:             3.0 yards
Stashed year to date:         64.0 yards 

 Net year to date:   2.125 yards stashed

I am joining Kate at Life in Pieces in tracking the number of days each week that I spend at least 15 minutes quilting. Once again, I managed to find small chunks of time for quilting on most days. I keep plugging away, and eventually there will be some results worth showing. 

15 Minute Challenge:  
August 14 - 20                 6 of 7 days
Year to date              216 of 233 days

350 Block Challenge at Prairie Moon Quilts
Blocks made this week:   16

  1. How wonderful it is that you are keeping up with the 15 minute challenge and the 350 challenge locks as well. I wish you continued success.

  2. Love the fabric! You could make a jelly roll quilt with it with a black triangle at every seam. I've seen it done and it really looks sharp. And then a piano key border. I'm getting ideas about a jelly roll in my sewing room.

  3. Very pretty fabrics. I have a hard time using precuts, hopefully you can find something fun to make. Considering how much you've had to work, you've done really well at finding time to sew.

  4. I have a very small collection of kaffe fabric waiting for inspiration. It's probably not there, because I am afraid to say his name wrong:)

  5. You're welcome! And jump right in. And by the way, Kaffe fabrics don't count toward stash totals. They are the stash equivalent of calorie free. :)
