15 Minutes to Stitch Updates

This is a big recap of several weeks of stitching, or lack thereof. I interspersed some photographs I took during these weeks for interest. There was a walking historical tour the library was sponsoring, so most of the photos are from that day.

15 Minutes to Stitch Week 18

I tried to work on Spicy Stars blocks, but realized pretty quickly that I needed to do something simpler, so I worked on some Unallocated scrap blocks. All the blocks are the same, and since I am using scrap fabric, any fabric will work for the most part, there is very little decision making.

15 Minutes to Stitch Week 19

I didn't find any time to quilt this week. I was behind in my housekeeping and mostly I wanted to rest, so I took advantage of my Prime trial subscription watching videos.

15 Minutes to Stitch Week 21


I found an even easier way to get some quilting in, which was to trim the Aunt Daisy blocks. They are all the same size, so trimming to that size was easy.

I'm glad you got some stitching time in here and there. I wondered if your work had completely preempted any stitching time as you hadn't linked up in a few weeks. Hopefully things will calm down a bit and you can get back to some of your more elaborate projects.

Quilting should be fun so if you feel stressed out do take a break and watch some videos instead.
Great house a funny bushes trimmed to shapes.

I haven't heard of this 15 Minutes to Stitch challenge, but I think it's a nice idea if a quilter (or hand worker) need motivation to stitch or sew. I love knowing you're making Unallocated blocks. Please be sure to share pictures of those too.

Very interesting building on your library tour!

My 15 minutes to stitch would be an awful grade if I kept up with it....since I don't work outside the home, I feel like I should get in stitching every day but that just does not happen. Though most times when I go up I do more than 15 minutes.

I am so far behind on your blog...and I thought of it several days ago...and just now getting here.
