Scrappy Stitching and a Stash Report

There has been lots of scrappy sewing happening in my sewing room this week. I've spent most of the past few days working on "Stars Galore," a very scrappy quilt made from charm squares. This is part of a project by the Common Threads Quilters Guild and the Sharpsburg Piecemakers, with the finished quilts going to a program for homeless veterans. The center is all together and just needs a border added.

There are lots of fun fabrics in this quilt. My favorite is a circus print, which fits in with my past few weeks of working on a stage production of Water for Elephants. You can see one of the costumes I worked on in THIS POST.

The stash report doesn't show any changes over the past week. None of the fabrics in the Stars Galore quilt came from my stash, and none of my other projects are ready to be counted.

Used last week:                          0.0 yards
Used year to date:                 46.625 yards
Added last week:                         0.0 yards
Added year to date:                49.625 yards
Net stashed in 2023                 3.0 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 quilting time. I missed one day this week, but more than made up for it over the last few days, spending several hours each day on the vet's quilt.

15 Minute Challenge for 2023: 
5/28 - 6/3             6 of 7 days
2023 Total      144 of 154 days

Happy quilting everyone!

  1. You picked a great color for those stars, they really shine out from all the other scraps. Your not so far off from the break even point on the stash numbers and there is still a little over half a year left, so you have time to make it to the black. Happy stitching this week.

  2. Love the pop of blue stars in a murky/dull background. I am sure it will be loved and cherished. I enjoyed that book - Water for Elephants. Enjoy your Sunday!

  3. Wonderfully scrappy quilt, for a great cause!

  4. Hello Julie!
    Wow! What a great way to use up those extra charm squares and for such a good cause!

  5. The circus fabric is great!
