Stitching and DeStashing--Week 52, 2019

I'm later than usual in posting my Sunday Stash Report for the week. That is because Ed and I spent the last few days at the beach. We went to St. George Island, which is just off the panhandle of Florida near Apalachicola. The beaches were gorgeous, and there were very few people there--perfection! We spent lots of time walking the beaches, ate plenty of delicious seafood, and had a very relaxing vacation.

Because we rented a house at the beach, I was able to take a sewing machine along and spent some of my time quilting. Most of that was cutting pieces for Bonnie Hunter's Frolic mystery, plus I did a little bit of stitching too. I also finished a couple more Orange Peel blocks during the drives down and back. 

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. Because I was able to quilt at the beach, my total for the week was 7 for 7. I will post my final numbers for the year next week.

15 Minute Challenge:  
12/22 - 12/28           7 of 7 days
2019 Total         342 of 362 days

Before we left on our trip, I finished joining all the blocks together from Alycia's 2019 Winter Quilt-Along. I haven't been able to get any complete photos of the finished top yet, but here  is the center of the quilt. Yardage used for this quilt was 5 yards. No new fabric added last week.

Used last week:                             5.0 yards
Used year to date:                        63.0 yards
Added last week:                            0.0 yards
Added year to date:                    71.75 yards
Net added year to date:            8.75 yards

I will update my final totals for 2019 next week. There's still a chance I might be able to use some more fabric in the remaining 2+ days!

Happy quilting everyone!

  1. Beautiful beach photo. How do you calculate how much fabric you use?

  2. You've done well with both your stash and your quilting. The red white and blue quilt is beautiful.

  3. Looks like a fun and relaxing winter get away. You've done really well on both finding time to stitch and using up stash this year. Your version of Winter Quilt along turned out beautifully. I'm hoping mine is a finished flimsy before the end of the year.

  4. What a wonderful vacation!!! Quilting and the beach, aaaaahhhh. Love the quilt center. Happy New Year!
