15 minute challenge - April 26

I had a pretty good week, in spite of having to re-do the backing and basting for the Purple Pinwheel quilt. I'm glad I did though.  I don't know what I was thinking.  So here's my week.

Tuesday -- basted Purple Pinwheel quilt ..
Wednesday -- unbasted Purple Pinwheel; put on new backing; re-basted Purple Pinwheel
Thursday -- quilted Purple Pinwheel
Friday -- quilted Purple Pinwheel
Saturday -- quilted Purple Pinwheel
Sunday -- watched Pride & Prejudice
Monday -- finished quilting .. attached binding to front of Purple Pinwheel, started hand sewing binding.

I'll probably finish the hand sewing tonight.  Now the real challenge begins.  working 15 minutes a day on the Prom Quilt.

To see what everyone else has been up to this week, check out Life in Pieces ...

Can't wait to see the quilt. Wednesday sounds like my week last week!
I used to hate undoing something I had worked on, but if i left it as is, it would end up in a cupboard forever. Now I undo it and start again, and I'm always pleased that I did.

Way to go on the re-baste. It's hard to do but the results are usually worth it. Cant wait to see how it's turned out.

Looks like you had a great week craft wise! Way to go Thea!

Congratulations on the almost finish! Great job on 6 out of 7 days.

Which Pride and Prejudice? The A&E version?

I can't imagine how frustrating it must be to have to re-do the backing! I can't wait to see the pictures of your finished piece! Happy Tuesday!

Oh I'm so sorry. Undoing backing and basting wouldn't be fun at all. I like Pride & Prejudice too.
