Stitching and DeStashing--Week 25, 2020

My first full week of retirement was a productive one for stash usage. The biggest project was the completion of the center part of my Frolic quilt, Bonnie Hunter's 2019 mystery. That used a total of 6 yards. Next I need to figure out a plan for the borders.

My other usage for the week was 3/4 yard for my pink and red Stashbuster Square Dance blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, which were shared in yesterday's post, plus 1/2 yard for a few more face masks for Ed. No new fabric was added to the stash, although I am anxiously waiting for an order to arrive.

Used last week:                              7.25 yards
Used year to date:                      110.75 yards
Added last week:                              0.0 yards
Added year to date:                       29.75 yards
Net used year to date                81.00 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. It was a good week, with at least 15 minutes every day, and usually a good deal more than that!

15 Minute Challenge:  
6/14 - 6/20              7 of 7 days
2020 Total         163 of 172 days

  1. Your Frolic came out beautifully--beyond me (or my skill set) to make one of these--
    nice job hugs from homebase Julierose Stay safe

  2. Love your version of Frolic. The teal, gray and yellow work so very well together. Did you make any of the HSTs Bonnie intended to be used in the pieced border?

  3. Hi,
    Your Frolic Quilt is awesome.
    Have a great day!
