Stash Report and Stitching Time 11/20/2022

The past week of quilting time didn't feel especially productive, but it turned out that I used more fabric than I realized. My usage included 2.625 yards for the border and the backing of the Thanksgiving Hexagons Stack & Whack quilt that I shared early in the week (see it HERE.) Unfortunately, it won't be finished in time for Thanksgiving due to machine tension problems. Instead I pulled out the matching fabric with black background (2.5 yards), hemmed it all around, and made it into a tablecloth perfect for fall and Thanksgiving. No new fabric was added this week, but there sure are a lot of tempting pre-Black Friday sales out there!

Used last week:            5.125 yards
Used year to date:       131.25 yards
Added last week:              0.0 yards
Added year to date:     118.25 yards
Net used in 2022         13.0 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 stitching time. Other than the Thanksgiving quilt and the tablecloth, most of my quilting time seemed to be spent trying to figure out the tension problems with my machine, including many phone calls and texts with a Juki technician. Unfortunately, the repairman for my local dealer has been in the hospital, and they don't know when he will be available for house calls again. I'm back to using my old Singer for everything until further notice.

15 Minute Challenge for 2022: 
11/13 - 11/19          7 of 7 days
2022 Total        316 of 323 days

  1. You've done well with your metrics this year, at this point you'll end on a high note for both. So sorry you have a sick sewing machine. That's no fun at all.

  2. What a great way to make a beautiful tablecloth! I hope your machine problems resolve themselves soon!

  3. A tablecloth is a sure-fire stashbuster! I recognize that print. I probably HAVE some of it.

  4. That is perfect tablecloth fabric!
