Stitching and DeStashing--Weeks 12 & 13, 2019

My weekly Stash Report has become something I dread sharing lately, with very little going out and much more coming in. Do you suppose that is why I haven't been posting a report every week? Today's tally covers the past two weeks, and I'm happy to say that there was no new fabric added and a good amount going out for a change. 

Most of my outgoing fabric was used for a wide variety of blocks over the past few weeks as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. They all used such small amounts of fabric that it made more sense to add up the fabric used for the whole group. I made one Framed Crumb Star, 3 string blocks, 3 crumb blocks, 4 Stair Steps blocks, 6 Tiny Tuesday blocks, and 15 Orange Peel blocks. The grand total used for all of those blocks was 1.25 yards, and I also used 3/8 yard for the hanging sleeve on a quilt for a show entry. Here is a rerun of yesterday's photo of most of my scrappy green blocks for the month just because I hate to have a blog post without any photos.

Used last week:                        1.625 yards
Used year to date:                        6.5 yards
Added last week:                          0.0 yards
Added year to date:                    26.0 yards
Net stashed year to date:         19.5 yards

Kate's 15 Minutes to Stitch challenge helps motivate me to find at least a little time for quilting every single day, and I have been doing much better at that recently. I've gotten in my 15 minutes, sometimes much more, every day for the past two weeks. I'm happy to be getting back to my usual quilting routine.

15 Minute Challenge:  
3/17 - 3/30        14 of 14 days
2019 Total          77 of 89 days

Happy quilting everyone!

  1. Glad to hear that you are finally able to get back to your normal quilting routine. You've had a very busy year outside of the sewing room. Your in versus out may be a bit lopsided at the moment, but once you get back into the groove I'm sure you can flip that around before the end of the year. Hope you get in lots of stitching time this week.

  2. Everything is such a pretty green. It helps to be in a routine. You can make a dent in the stash, I know you can!

  3. Beautiful green blocks to showcase what you have been doing. You are doing an excellent job with the stash as well as with quilting every day.

  4. Love the orange peel blocks and the owl!

  5. Wow, that's a lot of green! Love all your blocks and glad you had a "good" stash and stitching report this week (although it is just as much fun to add stash as to use it, isn't it? ;)
