Stitching and De-Stashing: Week 2, 2019

It's a chilly, grey day in Georgia, perfect for staying inside and quilting. There are many chores to take care of today (laundry, cooking, cleaning), but I am determined to spend some serious time in the sewing room too!

Kate's 15 Minutes to Stitch challenge at Life in Pieces has us keep track of how many days each week we are able to spend at least 15 minutes quilting. Last week saw quilting time on 6 of the 7 days, almost all of it hand applique. Getting a project organized enough for machine work is more than I can handle right now, but it feels good to get in some hand stitching most days.

15 Minute Challenge:  
1/6 - 1/12            6 of 7 days
2019 Total        11 of 12 days

The stash report didn't see much of a change for the week. I used 1/2 yard for some green string blocks (easy, mindless piecing) plus the first batch of blocks for a new Rainbow Scrap Challenge project. I will share those next weekend. No new fabric was added.

Used last week:                          .50 yards
Used year to date:                     1.25 yards
Added last week:                         0.0 yards
Added year to date:                     0.0 yards
Net used year to date:           1.25 yards

Check out more stash reports at quiltpaintcreate and join the 15 Minutes to Stitch challenge at Life in Pieces. 

Happy quilting everyone!

  1. That looks like a St Patrick's Day quilt in process. So pretty.

  2. Hopefully things are going to calm down on the work front soon so you'll have some time to get some projects lined out and get back to your machine stitching.
