Stitching and DeStashing--Week 22, 2021

The good news for my stash report this week is that no new fabric was added to the stash! The bad news is that there are a couple of Memorial Day sales that I've been browsing. My red, white & blue collection is seriously depleted, so I'm thinking about supplementing that area of my stash.

The other good news is that I can report 1.125 yards as used this week. I used 3/8 yard for my Sew Colorful Stars block and 3/4 yard for my collection of red bowtie blocks. You can see all the new blocks in yesterday's post.

I've been working on a sampler quilt of red, white & blue blocks. The two large pieces of fabric in this photo will be used together as the sashing for my blocks. It doesn't look too exciting in this photo, but believe me, they work great together! I hope to finish getting everything joined together into a top before next weekend's stash report.

Used last week:                             1.125 yards
Used year to date:                         99.75 yards
Added last week:                              0.0 yards
Added year to date:                         48.0 yards
Net used year to date                51.75 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 pulled out the set of RWB sampler blocks last week and have been working on getting them set into a quilt top. That has meant plenty of quilting time every day over the past week.

15 Minute Challenge for 2021: 
5/23 - 5/29                7 of 7 days
2021 Total           148 of 149 days

Happy quilting everyone!

  1. Looking forward to seeing your sampler blocks come together in a finished quilt. Congrats on excellent stash and stitching metrics last week. Hope this week is as good.
