Stitching and DeStashing--Week 27, 2021

Happy July 4th to everyone in the US! I hope you are enjoying a fun and safe holiday weekend!

The stash report for the past week took a bigger than usual jump on the used side, thanks to the completion of the blocks for my second version of the Positivity quilt. I finished 48 blocks, which used 5 yards of fabric. You can see some of the blocks in THIS POST. The blocks have all been joined together into a quilt top, but I'm going to wait and share photos of that when the next link-up happens on July 18th.

Other usage included 1/4 yard for one Homespun block, shown in yesterday's post, and 3/8 yard for these 16 Bowtie blocks, which will finish at 4". No new fabric was added to the stash last week.

Used last week:                             5.625 yards
Used year to date:                         118.0 yards
Added last week:                               0.0 yards
Added year to date:                        58.25 yards
Net used year to date                 59.75 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. My main quilting project for the week was making the rest of the Positivity blocks and joining them all together, but I also worked on a couple of other projects. There was definitely more than 15 minutes spent quilting every day!

15 Minute Challenge for 2021: 
6/27 - 7/3                  7 of 7 days
2021 Total           183 of 184 days

Happy quilting everyone!

  1. I ran across a bow tie UFO. Your purple bow ties make me want to pull it out and finish it.

  2. Pretty bowtie blocks! They are so versatile!

  3. Very colorful and fun bow tie blocks. Congrats on the stash usage and the stitching time. You've had a good year on both fronts so far.

  4. Wow, great week Julie and like your purple bow ties!
