Sunday Stash - 06/25/17

I'm sorry to say the numbers aren't changing much this week. Sharla is making progress on her Bistro quilt, but she will be hard pressed to finish it this week. Mainly because our sewing machines are going to the spa this week. It is time for them to get serviced and we want to make sure we have them back before next weekend because that is a 4 day weekend for us.

We are both still staying current...a little ahead of the #100days100blocks2017 challenge. Today's block will be #50, so we will be 1/2 way done. This week is week 7 and has blocks 43-49. We are still in the midst of the triangles, which I love, Sharla not so much. I think my favorite this week is #44 (top middle).

Sharla isn't having as much fun with the triangles, but she is pushing through. I love her #44 as well, but I think her favorite is #47 (2nd row middle).  She is hoping to get a little more ahead next weekend, because all she has worked on this weekend is her Bistro flimsy.

Now I do get to count a very small amount as used this week, because I had forgotten to count my bee block which has been sent and already received. I didn't actually count how much fabric I used but since it is a 16 1/2 inch square I'm guessing I used at least a fat quarter on it.

Now it is time to show numbers, which are not vastly different from last week, but I need to count everything possible. We open our piggy banks next week and we already know what we're going to buy. So the number will most likely go in the wrong direction soon.

Fabric Used this Week: 1/4 yard
Fabric Used year to Date: 122 yards
Fabric Added this Week: 0 yards
Fabric Added Year to Date: 68 yards
Net Fabric for 2017: 54 yards used

I have already gotten the fabric starched for my July project and will try and starch Sharla's this week. I hope to get mine cut and maybe even both of ours cut this week. I may have to cut more of Sharla's 100 days project first. I am linking up with Quilt Paint Create, and you can too or just check out the linky party to see what everyone else is doing.


  1. I have a four day weekend for the Fourth as well. Hope we all get in some extra quilty time.

  2. I know you are both working ahead, but it must be so sweet to know you are at the halfway point in the 100 blocks!

  3. Your blocks are looking great. I love the tiles you used -- didn't realize Scrabble had numbers.


I love hearing from you!!! Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment!!!!!
