Stitching and DeStashing--Week 8, 2020

The latest change to the stash total is 1.25 yards used for the backgrounds on a set of blocks for the Saturday Sampler quilt program at a local quilt shop. Each month we received a packet with 2 block patterns, 2 layer cake squares, and two pages of triangle paper. If we made our two blocks and brought them with us the next month, we got the next packet for free. I kept up with making all my blocks, but missed the meeting time one month because I had to work. Here are all my blocks at the end of the program. 

My background fabrics were a layer cake of pale grey prints. I need to rearrange the blocks some more, then figure out what to use for the sashing and borders.

Used last week:                            1.25 yards
Used year to date:                        7.00 yards
Added last week:                            0.0 yards
Added year to date:                        0.0 yards
Net used year to date                 7.0 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. My main project over the past week was the Saturday Sampler quilt, but I have continue working on my hand appliqued Orange Peel blocks too.

15 Minute Challenge:  
2/16 - 2/22                7 of 7 days
2020 Total               52 of 53 days

Happy quilting everyone!

  1. Love those sampler blocks! Very bright and fun. Congrats on the stash management so far in 2020 and all the stitching time. You've had a good year on both fronts. Happy stitching today. Hopefully work won't get in the way too much more this year.

  2. Your sampler blocks are very colourful.

  3. The blocks are great! Love the bright colors and they look great on the grey background. Great numbers for your stash and stitching time reports too!
