Another Year of 15 Minutes to Stitch

Kate is hosting 15 Minutes to Stitch again this year. The plan is to try to stitch for at least 15 minutes every day.  I am happy to do this again this year.

As usual, I had a strong start to this challenge. I spent the week with circles. I made a whole bunch of yo-yos, and now have 201 of them. I don't know about these types of quilts, but I would imagine they would need special care to keep them in shape.   I think yo-yos will look best on a flat surface and a bed in the guest bedroom will probably be the best place to put it where it has a chance of staying clean, so I have a bunch more of them to make.

I realized that the size of my Quilty Circles 365 quilt has not grown in a long time, although I have made some blocks. I decided to make more circles so that I can sew some more rows together to add to the rows that have already been made.

This one makes me think of The Little Mermaid Disney movie.

2020:  Week 1 of 15 Minutes to Stitch

I spent this week making circle blocks and yo-yos. To make the weeks end on a Sunday, I am recording 5 days for this week.

15 minute days/week =  5/5 days
15 minute days/2019 = 5/5 days
Success rate  = 100%

I need to get back to those circles, too. Love your variations. The last one reminds me of Sesame Street.

I've seen yo-yo quilts used as table toppers and table cloths too. They look really cute that way. Lots of good circles to add to the rest. This is going to be a fascinating quilt.

Yay! 100% is a strong start for all of us!

I like your quilty cicrcles and their stories.

I can't wait to see more progress of your your quilt and the circles showcased here are great. Yes, the last circle does remind one of The Little Mermaid.

I love that last circle block, very fun! Congrats on getting a strong start to your stitching year. Thank you for linking up with the 15 minutes to stitch this week.

I don’t know if I can do a year but I think I’ll try to keep track of 15 minutes is stitching for at least a month. I’m going to mark a check on my calendar and see if I can do thirty days running. I’ll let you know!
