It has been a very busy week for quilting here after getting very little quilting done in the previous weeks of the month. I started by finishing the binding and hanging sleeve on my Boston Fiesta quilt in preparation for the quilt show. There's one more quilt needing a hanging sleeve, plus labels for all three quilts to get them ready for drop-off next Sunday.
At the end of the week, I was able to take part in two Zoom quilting classes through the local guild. This was my first time for Zoom classes, and it was a very good experience. I missed the social aspects of taking a class in person with other people, but it was nice to not have to worry about packing up my machine and all the supplies, plus I didn't have the hassle of getting to the classes on time (always a challenge in Atlanta!)
This is a close-up peek at my Intriguing Interleave quilt from Thursday's class. I'll share more info and photos about this quilt soon, plus some photos from the other class too.
My stash report is showing a little progress in the used direction this week. I used 1/2 yard for the green Charm Basket blocks that were shared in yesterday's post. My projects for the two quilting classes used a total of 1.625 yards from the stash. There was no new fabric added last week, but I'm seriously tempted by some of the Memorial Day weekend sales!
2022 STASH TOTALS

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. I spent more time on quilting-related activities this week than I have in ages. There were the two 6-hour classes, plus the time spent prepping for those classes. I also finished the Boston Fiesta binding and sleeve early in the week.
