2021: Week 22 of 15 Minutes to Stitch



We are in the heat of peak season here at work, so quilting time is severely limited. But since I am working from home, I realized I could take my 15 minute breaks and use one of them for quilting!  The 15 minutes is less than 15 minutes because it includes a bathroom break and commute time back and forth to my desk, but it is only fair, since the time we count for work also includes breaks. Normally, 15 minutes of quilting winds up being more than 15 minutes when I am on a roll, but then, work does go over sometimes too as it takes time to close up everything.

2021:  Week 22 of 15 Minutes to Stitch


I added the two rows of sashing to the Amalfi quilt, formerly known as Seaglass Rooftops. I also measured and cut the inner border strips.  I sewed a side of the inner border, but it was too small (did I stretch the fabric when I was measuring?), so one of my breaks was used for ripping.

Beautiful flowers! Sometimes you just have to stitch when you can. Congrats on fitting in a few minutes here and there last week. Hopefully things will slow down soon.

You did make me smile at your comment re the commute from desk to bathroom.....too funny. =) Fabulous photo of the seed pod (?). The light filtering through is very cool. You know what they say about all work and no play. =)
