Stash Report and Stitching Time 2/11/2024

My stash report is showing a decent amount of usage for the week which will help offset some of the fabric that was added a week ago. The largest amount of fabric used was 1.75 yards for the two reverse applique placemats that were made for the latest Project Quilting challenge (see them HERE.)

The other projects to be counted in the stash usage for the week were my blocks for the RSC Hen & Chicks Sampler, shared in yesterday's post, plus these two blocks made for Jen's Monthly Color Challenge. The theme this year is tropical fish, and this month's choice was the Tangerine Discus.

I also made a small pouch to use in my purse, replacing the old and badly worn one that I'd had in there for years. The pattern is the Persimmon Dumpling Pouch, a free pattern at Sew Sweetness.

Added together, the blocks plus the pouch used 7/8 yard of fabric, bringing my total for the week to 2.625 yard used. No new fabric was added to the stash last week.

Used last week:                   2.625 yards
Used year to date:             11.375 yards
Added last week:                     0.0 yards
Added year to date:               17.5 yards
Net added in 2024:          6.125 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. The variety of projects always keeps me interested, and I've had no trouble getting my time in the sewing room.

2024 Total        41 of 41 days

  1. Those bright orange blocks are really fun. Everyone needs a little black pouch, yours turned out beautifully. Happy stitching this week.

  2. I love a zippy pouch for so many things. They hold up remarkably well in a purse.
