Slow Stitching and Using Stash

I am working on binding another quilt this week. I am on the last side and this one will be finished. There is some very pretty fabric in this quilt.

On the stash front, I got the baby quilt quilted for my mother and gave her the left over fabric for bindings. The backing was counted last week but the remainder this week. I cut borders for a strip twist quilt that was put up without borders, I hope to be able to preview that on Wednesday for the Bonnie Hunter hookup with JosCountryJunction. I also make a backing for another quilt to go on the quilt frame.

I managed to cut in half the amount I am in the red. A couple more weeks like this and I might actually get out of the hole.

Fabric out  5.22 yards
Fabric in 0 yards
Fabric out ytd: 45.527 yards
Fabric in ytd: 51.07 yards
Total -51.07 yards out

I am keeping up with the amount days of doing something quilty in the  sewing room along with Kate with the goal being at least 15 minutes per day. Days with 15 minutes of sewing time this week: 6 out of 7 days, I got the borders cut for  my Strip Twist quilt,  I got a baby quilt quilted for my mother and I got a backing made to load another quilt for quilting.
