Stitching and DeStashing--Week 39, 2020

Last week's Fall 2020 Quilty Orphan Adoption Event  hosted by Cynthia at Quilting is more fun than Housework made a big difference in my stash reduction efforts. I gave away three "orphans" which totalled 10.75 yards of fabric. I also included an extra 2.5 yard piece of yardage in one of the packages, and I used .25 yard for my red Scrappy Bear Paw block. The grand total outgoing for the week was 13.5 yards!

Scrappy Bear Paw, 14" block

Used last week:                             13.50 yards
Used year to date:                     163.375 yards
Added last week:                              0.0 yards
Added year to date:                         53.0 yards
Net used year to date            110.375 yards

My stash totals are looking very good for the year, but that's mostly because of the UFOs that have been given away, plus there was a large amount of stash used for mask making earlier in the year. 

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 week included some time for piecing, some for machine quilting, some searching for fabric to back the alphabet quilt, and a day of trying to clean up. Altogether, I got more than 15 minutes every day last week.

15 Minute Challenge:  
9/20 - 9/26               7 of 7 days
2020 Total          261 of 270 days

Happy quilting and stay safe everyone!
