Stitching and DeStashing--Week 6, 2021

We had a few days of chilly and rainy weather this week, which has meant even more time in the sewing room than usual for me. That led to a very productive week, with progress happening on several projects.

On the stash count, I used 1/2 yard for the most recent additions to my Feathered Star Round Robin quilt. We will get our instructions for the next round on that project tomorrow. I also used 1-3/8 yard for the yellow 30's Kaleidoscope blocks that I shared in yesterday's post. Total used for the week is 1.875 yards, and no new fabric was added to the stash. 

That usage brings my stash total for the year back to even--I have used the same amount of fabric as I have added! I hope to have even bigger numbers for usage next week.

Used last week:                           1.875 yards
Used year to date:                        11.50 yards
Added last week:                             0.0 yards
Added year to date:                      11.50 yards
Net used year to date                   0.0 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. I was able to get in some quilting time every day in January, and have continued my streak into February!

15 Minute Challenge for 2021: 
1/31 - 2/6                 7 of 7 days
2021 Total              37 of 37 days

Happy quilting everyone!

  1. The weather has encouraged staying inside, and that will likely continue. Good report!

  2. It's cold and nasty here too, with maybe an ice storm forecast for tomorrow. It is very good sewing weather (though I agree with you, any weather is good sewing weather). Congrats on breaking even with the stash in and out for the year. Congrats on all the stitching time too. Happy stitching this week.

  3. Great report, Julie. Enjoy the cold outside but keep warm and stitching inside.

  4. Our weather has been beautiful. It doesn't seem like winter after about 9 am. Today is chilly and clear skies. I sewed for 11 hours for QOV yesterday. So, today is clean up and sewing for me. Maybe I'll actually get some yardage used.

  5. Congratulations on breaking even with your stash! That's always a happy plan.

  6. How jealous!! I am still in the hole about 17 yards! It will get used eventually, right?

  7. Yay, well done on both time and stash!
