Stash Report Sunday 3/19/17

I missed posting a stash report last Sunday, but there really wasn't much to report anyway. This week was much better with over three yards of fabric used. I added borders to to the center of a quilt that was started in 2003, and I also pieced the back for a small quilt.

Used last week:           3.375 yards
Used year to date:     23.125 yards
Added last week:           0.00 yards
Added year to date:       2.00 yards

Net year to date used:  21.125 yards

Here is my Maple Stars quilt top complete with new borders. I received half of the blocks in this quilt from a block exchange at my quilt guild, and I made the rest of the blocks myself. They were joined together with the sashing and setting triangles in 2003. I decided recently to add borders to make the quilt a more useful size. I had to search long and hard through the fabrics in my sewing room to find the green leafy print for the outer border, but finally managed to dig it out!

I am continuing to join Kate at Life in Pieces in tracking how many days each week I manage to get in at least 15 minutes of quilting time. I have been able to find time to stitch every single day over the past two weeks, keeping up my nearly perfect record.

15 Minute Challenge:  
3/5 - 3/18              14 of 14 days
2017 Total              76 of 77 days
