Stash Report Sunday 7/16/17

My stashbusting efforts hit a milestone yesterday--60 yards used for the year! I know it's not a huge amount for many people, but for me it is a very good total after 6-1/2 months. My usage goal for the year is 100 yards, and I have made an excellent start at reaching that goal.

My usage for the week was 2.25 yards for a set of Scrappy Trips blocks. I'm planning to combine these blue blocks with some red ones I made earlier in the year for a Quilt of Valor.

This photo shows a few of the fabrics from these blocks. Some I remember so clearly, others I have no idea where or when I got them. The cream print with teapots and cups on it is at least 20 years old. I used it to make a little wallhanging for a friend who collected blue & white china.

Used last week:            2.25 yards
Used year to date:       60.00 yards
Added last week:             0.0 yards
Added year to date:        8.25 yards

Net used year to date:  51.75 yards

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'm trying to keep on track with some quilting time every single day.

15 Minute Challenge:  
7/15 - 7/21                 7 of 7 days
2017 Total          191 of 196 days
