Stash Report and Stitching Time 3/19/2023

I've had a busy week of quilting, both at home and with others. On Tuesday I was able to meet up with other guild members for a morning of sewing quilts for homeless veterans. Thursday morning was a guild meeting. With all of that, plus the usual errands and one doctor's appointment, it's hard to believe that I got any quilting done at home.

It was actually a productive week at home too. I finished two more borders on my guild's Block of the Month, which I shared in Tuesday's post. I also completed the last project for the 2023 Project Quilting Challenge, two placemats that were randomly pieced from 2.5" squares, shared HERE.

Stash reduction for the past week came to a total of 3.75 yards, a decent amount for one week. The largest amount was used for the last borders of my SAHRR quilt top, shown below. There was also fabric used for the guild BOM, the two placemats, and two star blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

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 quilting time. As you might guess from the opening paragraphs of this post, I definitely spent more than 15 minutes quilting every day, which means it was a very good week!

15 Minute Challenge for 2023: 
3/12 - 3/18         7 of 7 days
2023 Total        75 of 77 days
