Stash report March 24, 2019

It's a miracle, but, there was no new fabric making a home here with me last week. I did buy some shirts at the rescue mission for .25 each. But, I walked away from thrift store fabric and giveaways and other peoples's least last week. I make no promises.

I am still sorting through the green scraps, and used the shortish strips to make 4 patches in 2 1/2 inch size. I used the 2 1/2 inch die to subcut into twosies.

And then there were more 4 patches for the irish chain quilt. Right now, this is my favorite part of the green color family.

Stash report

Fabric Used this Week 0 yard
Fabric Used year to Date: 73.5 yards

Fabric Added this Week: 0 yards
Fabric Added Year to Date: 95.5 yards
net fabric: 22 yards bought more than used

I have a binding to hand sew today. I love that part and look forward to feet up and working on this.

I sewed more than 15 minutes every day. The best time for me is first thing in the morning, before I feel obligated to do anything else.

15 min to stitch at life in pieces


  1. It's a very spring-like green, bright and happy. I never find clothes I can use for quilts at the thrift. I'll have to try a different shop.

  2. I wouldn't mind getting a hold of shirtings like you have but I am on a mission to not buy fabric this year unless needed for backgrounds and backings. I wouldn't want to measure everything and keep track though, I have too many bins of scraps to do that.

  3. You did really well on the shirts. Great metrics on all fronts this week. Happy stitching!

  4. ENjoy your binding... a lovely spring colour to be stitching!
    Terrific shirt plaids!
    Thanks for linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching and sharing your projects!

  5. That green is my favorite of the spectrum!!
