Stitching and DeStashing--Week 15, 2019

My stash reduction efforts kept heading in the right direction this week with 3/4 yard used on two sets of blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I made 12 Stair Steps blocks in greens, our color from March. This is a new layout idea that I am considering for these blocks.

I have a set of six crumb blocks in reds that I made in January. They were meant to finish at 4", but all the other crumb blocks have finished at 6". I decided to add on to the red blocks and bring them up to the same size.

4" crumb blocks...

turned into 6" crumb blocks

Used last week:                           .75 yards
Used year to date:                    11.25 yards
Added last week:                          0.0 yards
Added year to date:                    26.0 yards
Net stashed year to date:      14.75 yards

My numbers for Kate's 15 Minutes to Stitch challenge have been steadily going up over the past month. Once again, I was able to spend at least 15 minutes quilting every single day that week. I'm in the zone and enjoying the process!

15 Minute Challenge:  
4/7 - 4/13          7 of 7 days
2019 Total        91 of 103 days

Happy quilting everyone!

  1. I like the layout for the stair step blocks. Adding to the 4" red crumbs was the most logical solution and easy enough to accomplish.

  2. That's an interesting layout for the stair step blocks. How would you work in the blocks of the other colors?
