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. We got our second Covid vaccine on Wednesday, and my sore arm limited the amount of rotary cutting I could do afterwards. Fortunately, the discomfort didn't last long, and I am still on track with quilting time every day.

Stitching and DeStashing--Week 16, 2021
My quilting time for the past week was mostly divided between two main projects. The first was adding the corner triangles to the kaleidoscope blocks that I have been making as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge since the beginning of this year. That doesn't change the Stash Report though, because I had already counted all the blocks as though they were complete.
The other project that filled my time last week was Alycia's current Quilts of Valor mystery #A12--Dakota Inspired. You can currently find pdf's for all the clues on her Alycia Quilts blog. The mystery started in early March, and I had been saving the clues since then, but wasn't making any of the parts yet. Once I saw the blocks and the quilt layout, I needed to pull out some fabrics and join in the fun.
This quilt will have a total of 32 blocks. I have finished 18 blocks and have 8 red and 6 blue still to be made. I didn't have a big enough piece of any one red fabric, so I am making each churn dash block out of a different red. The blue is a leftover from a recent quilt back.
These 18 blocks used 2.5 yards from my stash. I am also counting 3/4 yards as used for some crumb and string blocks that I made recently. No new fabric was added last week.
