Stash Report Sunday 11/5/17

I've been playing around with some new block ideas this week. I made two blocks that I've known by the name Dutchman's Puzzle (the smaller blocks.) Then I made two more blocks that were a variation of the same pattern, but the name I found for that version was Flying Dutchman. There's some irony in that name because Ed, my music man, is playing in the orchestra for the Atlanta Opera's performances of Wagner's The Flying Dutchman. It seems like this is meant to be!

Dutchman's Puzzle/Flying Dutchman blocks

These four blocks used a total of 1/2 yard of fabric. I've been getting lots of quilt shop emails with tempting sales, but haven't given in yet--no fabric added last week!

Used last week:             .50 yards
Used year to date:        87.0 yards
Added last week:            0.0 yards
Added year to date:      8.25 yards

Net used year to date: 78.75 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 had a productive week, making good progress on a few projects.

15 Minute Challenge:  
10/29 - 11/4              7 of 7 days
2017 Total          298 of 308 days

Check out more stash reports at quiltpaintcreate, and add your own report so we can keep the linky going.

  1. Fun blocks. Are these going into one project are are you just experimenting? You've done such a great job on both the stash busting and on finding time to stitch this year.

  2. I love both those blocks.
    Fun to find interesting facts about blocks.
