The majority of my time in the sewing room over the past week was spent going through all of my many quilting books and pulling out some to give away. I've set a few aside for possible future blog giveaways, but there are three boxes full that are going away. Fortunately, a friend in a guild said they would be happy to take the books. It makes me happy that they will go to other quilters instead of just giving them to Goodwill.
I did squeeze in some sewing time too. I made a sample block from the Fat Quarter Shop's Sew Colorful Stars pattern, using 1/2 yard of fabric, and I also finished making my Stashbuster Square Dance blocks in red and orange for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. 3/4 yard of fabric was used for those blocks. No new fabric added this week (but I did place an online order last night.)

My net stash usage is over 100 yards! That is definitely a first for me. Most years I struggle to reach 100 yards in the used amount, but I have blown past that number thanks to orphan/UFO adoptions, giving away old fabric, and making lots of masks.
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. Sorting through the quilting books got tiresome after awhile, but it sure feels good to have it done, and I got in a little bit of stitching time too. I did have more than 15 minutes every day.
15 Minute Challenge:
9/6 - 9/12 7 of 7 days
2020 Total 247 of 256 days
I pulled out an old project to play with last night, and I need to figure out what else to focus my attention on in the coming week.
Happy quilting and stay safe everyone!
