So here's my answer Kate's question from last week
about why I participate in the 15 minute challenge:
I do the challenge because when I don't push myself to sew, I just sit and watch TV or play stupid computer games and then I get mad at myself for not accomplishing anything.
What I really love about quilting is the finished product -- that's why I do it. that's not completely true, I actually love the entire process. I love each block as it comes together. I love seeing the quilt pattern come together. I love the way the quilting looks .. particularly when I do lots of it. I enjoy sewing the binding on; particularly the hand sewing on the back.
I do, however, need to work on my technique I need to be more precise in both my cutting and sewing. I need to push myself to do the more complicated and time consuming blocks/patterns.
I also need to work on colors .. I have trouble picking them out and getting the right hues and tones. If I had my way, I'd probably make all my quilts blue and white, or red and white, or black and white, or green and white, or pink and white .. you get the picture..
Here's what I did this past week:
Tuesday - continue quilting prom quilt*
Wednesday - continue quilting prom quilt
Thursday - continue quilting prom quilt
Friday - continue quilting prom quilt
Saturday - continue quilting prom quilt
Sunday - finish quilting prom quilt; finish binding
Monday - take pictures of prom quilt; go through all fabric and organize

This week I have no plans. I need to figure out what project to do next. So I'll look through magazines and blogs. Maybe I'll try making some different blocks to see what they look like. I don't anticipate this being a particularly crafty week.
*No pictures of the prom quilt here .. you'll need to check yesterday's post.
