Georgia was one of the few lucky places to not have the bitter cold and snow or ice that hit so many parts of the country last week. I lived in Houston for a couple of years after finishing college, and I can't even imagine what residents there have been going through. I hope power is restored for everyone soon. We had several days of chilly, rainy weather, which just makes me want to hide out in my sewing room.

Stitching and DeStashing--Week 8, 2021
My stash report shows a major increase in fabric used last week. That is because I made quilt backs for five different red, white & blue/Quilts of Valor tops. The oldest of the quilt tops dated back to 2016, and the newest one is from last year. Now they all have backs hanging with them, ready to be quilted. You can see them all in THIS POST.
The quilt backs used a total of 25.75 yards of fabric. I also used 1/2 yard for the most recent borders on my Feathered Star Round Robin, plus 3/8 yard for my yellow Sew Colorful Stars block. The grand total for the week was 26.625 yards used, and no new fabric was added last week.
2021 STASH TOTALS
Used last week: 26.625 yards
Used year to date: 41.875 yards
Added last week: 0.0 yards
Added year to date: 11.50 yardsNet used year to date 30.375 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. The weather has kept me indoors lately, which tends to mean plenty of time in the sewing room.

Happy quilting everyone!
