When I started tallying up the numbers for my weekly stash report, I made the happy discovery that none of the fabric used in my recently finished Sister's Choice quilt had been previously reported. Most of the time, I count fabric as used as I make progress on a quilt. For instance, I will report the fabric in the blocks when they are all made, then later count the fabric in the sashing and/or borders when that step is complete, and the backing and binding after those tasks are finished. For the Sister's Choice quilt, the numbers had already been calculated, but never listed on a stash report. The total amount of fabric used in that quilt was 7.5 yards.
My other usage for last week was 3/4 yard for six Blooming Onion blocks (which I showed in yesterday's post) and 1.25 yards for 36 yellow bowtie blocks. My plan for the year is to make one bowtie block every day, following the color of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge when possible. I've managed to get ahead a bit, making a total of 72 blocks in the first 58 days of the year.
