Week 20 of 15 Minutes to Stitch

 I want to thank everyone on their input for the border fabric for the Amalfi quilt. It is so nice that there is consensus about the solid inner border and the floral fabric for the outer border. I can now move forward with confidence without any second guessing. I really liked that combination too, but I was thinking that the criteria I was trying to give the eye a place to rest and the floral fabric does not fit that criteria.  I now realize that a fabric that is too calm would not fit with the overall mood of the quilt.

2021:  Weeks 20 of 15 Minutes to Stitch

I had a 100% success rate in quilting for 15 minutes a day this year, until this week.  I knew there was no way I would be able to keep it up, but I managed until now. This week, I can take credit for two days.  I spent one day auditioning the border fabrics for the Amalfi quilt, formerly known as Seaglass Rooftops. On another day, I fussy cut the fabric for the remaining sashing.

15 minute days this week --2 out of 7
15 minute days this year -- 131 out of 136 days
Success rate  = 96%

You have had a great success rate so far this year.

You have still had a great year on the stitching front. It's so hard to keep 100% all year since life happens to us all at various points in time. Hope this week was better, even if it was just by one more day of stitching time.

Keeping up 15 minutes a day for this long is an achievement! Love the picture of the flowers.

96% is good enough, it seems to me.

Good job! It will be fun to see how that floral fabric pulls everything together!
