Stitching and DeStashing--Week 22, 2019

Last week was a good one for my stash reduction efforts. I tallied up the number of Orange Peel blocks made in the past six weeks (28 blocks, 1/2 yard used.) I also finished making the rest of the Woven Squares QOV blocks, using a total of 3.25 yards for all 48 blocks. No new fabric added. The YTD additions to stash are finally back down below 10 yards!

Here are all 48 of the Woven Squares blocks up on the wall. Please forgive the poor lighting in my nighttime photo. I'm hoping to finish joining them together today, then figure out a plan for a border or two. This might be a finished quilt top by this time next week!

Used last week:                          3.75 yards
Used year to date:                   18.625 yards
Added last week:                          0.0 yards
Added year to date:                   27.75 yards
Net stashed year to date:         9.125 yards

Kate's 15 Minutes to Stitch challenge at Life in Pieces has us tracking how many days each week we get in at least 15 minutes of quilting time. I've been able to get in some quilting time every single day, and I hope that pattern continues!

15 Minute Challenge:  
5/26- 6/1                 7 of 7 days
2019 Total         140 of 152 days

Happy quilting everyone!

  1. Oh My! I love this design. I think I have finally found what I need to make with my overflowing strips.

  2. Loving that "woven" look on this one..hugs, Julierose

  3. Woven Squares is coming together beautifully! Congrats on getting the imbalance in stash management down below 10 yards in. There is still more than half the year left. Have a great Sunday.

  4. That's a great design and looks good in those colors - hope you found your sewing time today!

  5. I really like your woven squares. That looks fairly fast to piece. Great stash reduction, and woohoo! going under ten added! You're doing really well on the 15-minute challenge, too.

  6. Your Woven Squares QOV looks great!
