Week in Review

... and Statsh Status

Let's begin with -- TaDa!!

Clean work table!
Earlier in the week it looked like this:

So sad ....
And this --
Weekly Stash Report - July 26, 2015
     In last week:                      0.00 yards
     Out last week:                 10.75 yards
     In year to Date:             122.00 yards
     Out Year-to-Date:           91.00 yards
     Net Used 2015                31.00 yards 

Narrowing in on neutral!

How did I do it?  I made a back and binding for the baby quilt.  1.5 yards

I threw together the Disappearing 4-patch top, back, and binding for 2.75 yards.

I made a binding for Exploding Pineapple for .75 yards.

Twisted Sister used up 5.75 yards in top, back, and binding.

Athena Blue in process

I was one seam short of finishing Athena Blue, but a summer cold slowed me down the last few days.  So that is what's on my design wall this Monday morning.

Funny thing about this quilt ... DH rarely comments on my work unless I ask for an opinion.  But he made a special effort to tell me he thought this interesting.  I guess it will go to him!

When finished today it will be a start on more stash-busting for the week.  Gotta get more done this week because the grandkids arrive next week and there will be lots of games and outdoor activities, little time for sewing (unless CG wants to work on something).

Linking up with Patchwork Times.


  1. Congratulations on your clean work table. It's so easy for me to get a huge mess on mine! Your Athena Blue quilt looks great. Isn't it a wonderful feeling when family members comment on our creativity?

  2. Wow - Congrats on your stash-busting, your finishes, and your clean-up!

  3. Wow! I'm impressed with that work table. Good job! Doesn't it feel good to have a project finished and all together. Congratulations on those, too! I really like your Athena Blue blocks. I once checked how that would look as a border in EQ. I just wasn't sure if I wanted to piece all those blocks. Yours look great!

    1. Oops! I forgot to tell you that this is Sharon B in Franklin. :-S
