15 Minute Challenge

I am linking up with Kate at Life in Pieces for the 15 minute challenge.  Here's how my week went.  I didn't really get any sewing done on Friday night, but I'll just pretend that shopping for fabric counts.

Tuesday - quilted baby quilt
Wednesday - quilted baby quilt
Thursday - quilted baby quilt
Friday - got backing for "out of time" and binding fabric for twisted quilt ("out of time" is going to be renamed "just in time" or something along those lines,
Saturday - finished quilting baby quilt, made binding, attached to front of quilt
Sunday - finished machine binding (new quilting technique for me); started tucking in strings
Monday - finished twisted quilt - renamed Addison's Quilt

Here are  pictures of the first finish for the year.





I don't know why I didn't get a picture of someone holding it up but I didn't.  Here's a picture of it on the floor before it was finished.  and before I put the pink border on but you get an idea of what it looks like. 

I added stripes for the binding and I think it turned out okay. I machine stitched the binding down, which was a first for me and again, I think it turned out.

Wow, great week. Shopping for fabric counts, you needed it to finish a project. Love Addison's Quilt, that pink border looks great with the green and brown. Love the pink dots on the back and that binding. Great job.
