When it was time to figure out my stash usage for the past week, I realized that almost everything I stitched last week involved triangles of different types. There were the half-square triangles in the Sew Colorful Stars blocks--144 of them in three blocks, Then there were all the triangles in the 16 Kaleidoscope blocks I made--that total comes to 192. You can see both sets of blocks that contain all those triangles in yesterday's post. I used a total of 2 yards of fabric for the blocks, and no new fabric was added to the stash last week.
For some reason, after several months of thinking I should start a new hand-stitching project, yesterday was the day that it finally happened. I decided to make hand appliqued hearts. I cut a heart pattern from a square of paper, making sure it would fit on a 3.5" square of fabric since I have many of those around. I pulled out a white and light grey print for the background. Here is the first block halfway done.

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. Cutting and stitching all the triangles over the past week definitely filled up more than 15 minutes each day.
15 Minute Challenge for 2021:
7/11 - 7/17 7 of 7 days

Happy quilting everyone!
