Stash Report – Week 38, 2015

Nothing in or out!  But a little progress was made on my various projects.  I was able to get the “No Dogs” sign appliqued on to Block 7 of Raining Cats and Dogs.

Here’s a picture of the full block as it is now.  I’m trying to work on this one piece at a time on the weekends.  So today the plan is to get the dog’s tail on.

I was also able to get Hampton Ridge go from 6 rows to 3 rows.  The next step is to get it into 2 rows, then 1 piece!  I’m loving how this is turning out.  Once I get that inner top done, I’ll pull out the border fabric and start working on getting that on.

I worked a little bit on Celtic Solstice too but it’s just a bunch of HSTs and white triangles right now.  I need to be patient because here’s the part where my precision starts to slacken.  This is why I only do a few at a time because after about 20 of these things, they all start to blend together.  I took out the Corduroy Quilt – Razzle – yesterday but didn’t have a chance to actually do anything.  So today I’ll be adding it to the rotation.  Here’s the plan:

  1. At the pressing stations
    1. press the white fabric (because I still need to cut about 50 pairs of the 2″ triangles)
    2. press the random pieces I pieced together as leaders and enders between project yesterday
    3. press the Celtic Solstice pieces that are already have one of the white triangles pieced with an HST
  2. Go through Razzle and see where I’m at
  3. At the cutting station
    1. Cut the white fabric for the 50 pairs
    2. Cut for Razzle if I need to
  4. At the piecing station
    1. piece the white triangles to the HSTs for Celtic Solstice
    2. piece Razzle together.

Here’s the numbers this week:

Used this week: 0 yards

Used year to Date: -47 yards
Added this week: 0 yards
Added Year to Date: 87.08 yards
Net Added for 2015: 39.58 yards

Weekend Lineup


This weekend, the plan is to do a bit on Raining Cats and Dogs, do a bit on Hampton Ridge, do a bit on Celtic Solstice, and try to find something I enjoy doing that I can sprinkle Celtic Solstice into.

I was able to get some cutting done for the Celtic Solstice but I still need 50 more pairs of those little white HSTs I mentioned on a previous post. When I realized that I needed more I had a bunch of white larger triangles that I cut down to size.  Then I went through the Scrap Bin #3 to find any white/light cream scraps.  Well I cut them all and I still need 50 pairs.  So I went through Scrap Bin #4 and found more white fabric I can use.  Next step: press and cut.  But I’m thrilled that I was able to reduce the scrap bins!  It’s the little things in life we find enjoyment in, right?

Well since I’m bored with Celtic Solstice, I’m pulling the next project on my quilt list.  There are other things in my goal list – one is knitting and another one is finishing a mini-project like a bag or something.  But I’m not enthused about either of those items.  So, the next quilt project is the Corduroy quilt!  I’ll leave you with a picture from when I last worked on that project in 2014:
