Stash Report and Stitching Time 1/16/2022

The first part of the week was spent making the last sets of 4" blocks for my Bowties 365 quilt, one of my 2021 projects for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. My goal last year was to make an average of one block every day of the year. I ended up making 245 of the more pastel 5" blocks, and 180 of them were used in the Spikey Rainbow Bowtie quilt (see it HERE.)

My other set of bowties are 4" blocks with scrappy cream backgrounds. If I counted correctly, the total number of blocks made for that set is 364, with 88 of them having been made since the beginning of this year. You can see the latest additions in yesterday's post. I used almost 2 yards of fabric for the recent blocks. 

Used last week:         1.875 yards
Used year to date:     4.875 yards
Added last week:         0.00 yards
Added year to date:     2.75 yards
Net used in 2022       2.125 yards

I have been trying out some layout ideas for these bowtie blocks--here is one option. Not very interesting I'm afraid. More ideas coming tomorrow.

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. Besides the bowtie blocks, I've also been making little basket blocks (shown in yesterday's post.) I spent much more than 15 minutes quilting every day last week.

15 Minute Challenge for 2022: 
1/9 - 1/15          7 of 7 days
2022 Total       15 of 15 days

Happy quilting everyone!

  1. With 4.5" blocks it does take a lot to add up to a much on the usage front. You've gotten off to a good start in 2022.

  2. I didn't even recognize this as a bow tie quilt on your link up picture! Your layout is new to me and I love it! Thank you for sharing!
