When I sat down to calculate my stash report for the week, I didn't think there would be any usage to report because most of the week was spent joining blocks together. However, I realized that the final set of Charm Basket blocks got finished after my last stash report, 24 light and bright blue blocks.
Those blocks plus a dozen background rectangles at the ends of columns used a total of one yard of fabric. They all got joined together with the previous 200+ basket blocks into my finished Charm Baskets quilt top. I shared this same photo in yesterday's post, but I love it so much that it is making a second appearance!
As for fabric additions, I received another fat quarter bundle of solids, this time in shades of Golden Topaz, from the Fat Quarter Shop. 3 yards added. They seem like the perfect colors for this time of year!

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. After finishing the last set of basket blocks, I spent most of the week assembling the Charm Basket quilt top. After that, I switched over to catching up on some free-motion quilting lessons.
15 Minute Challenge for 2022:
10/30 - 11/5 7 of 7 days
2022 Total 302 of 309 days
