Stitching and DeStashing--Week 47, 2020

There has been a flurry of quilt assembly happening around here lately, with two quilt tops completed in recent weeks. The latest was the Scrappy Bear Paws quilt, a Rainbow Scrap Challenge project which I showed in yesterday's post. I had been making one block per month and counting that fabric usage in the stash report each month. The final usage was 1.75 yards for the pretty blue sashing, setting triangles and borders on the quilt.

Another project this week that used up part of the stash was modifications on some pajama pants, replacing the waist casings on two pairs and adding pockets to another. It may not involve quilting, but the fabrics, shown in the photo below, are quilting weight novelty prints.  5/8 yard used. No new fabric added to the stash this week

Used last week:                            2.375 yards
Used year to date:                       183.00 yards
Added last week:                              0.0 yards
Added year to date:                        64.0 yards
Net used year to date             119.00 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. Since finishing the Bear Paws top, I've been catching up on a few different projects and trying to clean up the sewing room a bit.

15 Minute Challenge:  
11/15 - 11/21              7 of 7 days
2020 Total            317 of 326 days
