It's the last Sunday of the year, which means the last official Stash Report for 2021, although I expect to have a final update to my numbers next week.
My usage last week includes 2.625 yards for the Rainbow LeMoyne baby quilt top and back that I shared in yesterday's post. I also used 1 yard in yet another Dresden pillow, this one for my husband Ed, made from his father's ties. The fabric for the back of the pillow was a shirt that Ed was going to give away.
Posting these photos made me realize that I never shared any photos of the two pillows that I made for Amber, Ed's cousin's wife. Her father had a collection of very bold print ties which were lots of fun to combine in these pillows. They got a batik fabric for the pillow backs.
My last Black Friday fabric order finally arrived on December 23rd. I had gotten several wide backings from a fantastic sale at Keepsake Quilting.
I was especially excited to get the grey with bright dots fabric. I've been waiting for that to go on sale ever since I finished the top for my Scrap Magnet quilt. Won't they look great together?
I also have a few other rainbow quilts that include grey in the background and would work beautifully with the dotty backing fabric. Altogether, I added 22.5 yards to the stash this week, since I count the wide backings at 2.5 times the yardage length.

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 stitching time. My stitching time over the past week was mostly spent on finishing the pillow for Ed and putting together the Rainbow LeMoyne quilt top and back.
