15 Minute Challenge - Week 4 - 2012

Tuesday - nothing
Wednesday - Cut strips for "it's a jungle out there"
Thursday - made one nine patch, one disappearing nine patch
Friday - nothing
Saturday - nothing
Sunday - nothing
Monday - nothing

Oops, I forgot that I bought one yard of fabric at Ikea on Saturday .. it was on sale for $1.99/yd so I couldn't pass it up -- when Katie is next here we'll go there and check the fabrics out because I think they might work with some of my mom's fabrics.  The fabric I bought is black and white (they had the same pattern but white and black that wasn't on sale that I almost accidentally bought too) -- I want to make a black and white quilt sometime, so I'm trying to stock up on fabrics.  Probably don't need a yard of each though.

I got some good name suggestions for the giraffe quilt .. disappearing giraffes, peek-a-boo giraffes, dot's giraffe, seeing spots, target practice.

Anyway, check out Life in Pieces 15 minute challenge to see how everyone else did this week on the challenge and to link up yourself.

A couple of days is better than none, some weeks you do the best you can with the time you have.

All are fun names, but I think Seeing Spots is my favorite.

Thanks for linking up this week.

15 minutes, hey! This past 2 weeks 15 minutes has turned into 8 hours - can't go outside, so just stay in and sew, sew, sew! It's been kind of nice, but ready to get out and do something, anything else!

Since the nearest Ikea is 500kms away, it's not something I realy visit often, and I found myself kinda disappointed by the fabrics they had, but maybe that was just because a lot of people had talked them up. Or maybe it was becasue I was hideously hungover and still half covered in food dye. Either way, congrats on finding some good fabric there. Maybe now that you're putting your mind to it you'll get one of those "it's taken over my life" style stashes.
