15 Minutes to Done!!!

I spent some time looking for online projects to I need things to add to my list, right? Also, I was trolling for "Get Things Done" motivation.

Look what I found:

2013 NewFO Challenge from Barbara of Cat Patches.  Here's what you get to do, you get to start a new project every single month...12 new ones!! The catch is that you don't have to finish them!!!  Join me? Put her button on your side bar. Think about it, 12 new projects!!!

Project Quilting from Kim at Persimon Dreams. Ouch!!! This one is a weekly project and you MUST get it done!! I'm so crazy, but it's a great reality type challenge. Any suggestions for a square in a square pattern that's quick and easy?

I found this class with Laura Nownes on Craftsy and it's free!!! It's another Block of the Month...with videos!!

Another Block of the Month from Pile O'Fabric. It's a skill builder and who doesn't want to improve your skills.

2013 - A Lovely Year of Finishes hosted by Melissa and Shanna. I need to blog about it today.

I'm getting a bit into more modern quilts and so I've decided to add one more quilt to my list. It's a mystery called Sunbonnet Sleuth Mystery #5. Has a nice ring to it, yes?

Finish-A-Long for 2013 with Leanne, perhaps this will be better because it's quarterly? We shall see.

There's a couple more I might try and will add later. For now, I've added these to my side bar, but it's getting full of free stuff to do!!

It's Been Awhile

I will just say, "Sorry," and move on. Life really gets in the way A LOT for me. It's been a hot summer and the pool has been very inviting. Too hot to sew outside, so "swimming" it is!!! The tree over our pool has shed its leaves directly into the pool. They are still falling, it's a bunch of work to keep them gathered up and off the bottom. Since my husband is unable to tend to the outside work (or inside), I've taken on this task. I've only sucked up so many leaves one time and had to call the pool company to blow the lines. Got one of those leaf catchers, pronto!!! 
Enough said, here's what I've been up to:
I decided that I couldn't pass up the Sew Sampler subscription box from the Fat Quarter Shop. This was the pattern called Moonshine and they included the fabrics so I was able to whip this up pretty quickly.  I'm really happy with my points on this one. I've added the outer borders and will update the pic soon. I'm act…

2017 is Here

Okay, so truth be told, I didn't do very well at finishing projects or blogging about them in 2017. If I blog every day about my 15 minutes of sewing, will that drive readers away?

I did finish this quilt, so I can cross that off of my UFOs, right? I have gifted it, but I really wish I had a pic of the flying geese going up/down. Sigh. Now to made some 2017!!

I did add a page for 2017 so I could list them, but I have so many years with so many unfinished quilts, it's embarrassing. BLUSH
I did start Bonnie Hunter's En Provence and here's a sample of a somewhat finished block. 

I also played around with Cheryl's Meadow Mist Mystery 2017 and I'm almost finished in time for tomorrow's next clue.  I think the piece on the bottom row in the middle might be the inside of the fabric or not??? I'll check.  All the other steps are finished, I hope. 

I'm also going to try free motion quilting for the first time, so I am ready with my panel and will…

A New Project

Here are my fabrics for a new project that is a mystery quilt on a Facebook group to which I belong. If you are interested, you can join the group called "Just Us Quilters" and join in the fun.
