Stitching and DeStashing--Week 28, 2021

My stash report is showing another sizable change on the used side, with a total of 6.5 yards used last week. The majority of that usage was for the backing of my Positivity QAL quilt, which took 5.25 yards. My quilt back features a giant plus sign in the center. I can see in the photos that I need to give this back a good pressing.

The rest of the fabric used was for six Glorified 9-Patch blocks and the black and brown Homespun blocks. All of those blocks were shared in yesterday's post.

Used last week:                               6.50 yards
Used year to date:                         124.5 yards
Added last week:                               0.0 yards
Added year to date:                        58.25 yards
Net used year to date                 66.25 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. Other than the Positivity quilt backing, most of my quilting time last week was spent on a variety of projects for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, and I did get in at least 15 minutes every day.

15 Minute Challenge for 2021: 
7/4 - 7/10                  7 of 7 days
2021 Total           190 of 191 days

  1. What a fun backing for your Positivity quilt. Backings do give a nice bump to the stash out numbers. Happy stitching this week.

  2. Love the backing. What a fun way to bring the theme for the front to the back
