15 Minute Challenge

For sewing, this week was a bust, but I still did a few things sewing related so I'm linking up to the 15 minute challenge anyway.

Here's how my week went.

Tuesday - Nothing
Wednesday - took apart old duvet cover
Thursday - nada
Friday - zip
Saturday - zilch
Sunday - moved fabric around (cleaned room)
Monday - sorted through fabric

A good friend of mine gave me 9 boxes of fabric over the last two weeks and I needed to go through it, decide what I was going to keep, and find a taker for the rest.  I did all that.  Tomorrow night I will give the fabric I'm not keeping to its new owner.

My bedroom was taken over by boxes and a general mess so I focused on dealing with that this past weekend. After doing that, I think I've decided on the backing for the stacks quilt. And I'm definitely going to try making sleepy pants this weekend.  Sorting my fabric certainly makes me want to get moving.  So much fabric, so little time.

I washed the quilt that is on my bed this weekend and every time I look at it, I still love it. The simplicity, the geometry.

And, I probably should have saved this picture for tomorrow, but I couldn't resist posting it here.

p.s. this is my 700th post.

Going through 9 boxes of fabric will definitely limit your time to sew. Hopefully you will have more opportunity next week.

Oh what a beautiful quilt. Isn´t it just true that the simple quilts are sometimes so much more beautiful?
And what a cute smile...

What a cutie. (the quilt and the child!)

I think you more than blitzed the 15 minute challenge this week Thea. 9 boxes of fabric sorted is quite and achievement!

I like your blue quilt too! Pinwheels are a favorite of mine.

Gorgeous quilt, I love the subtle colors you used.

Sounds like you were doing a lot of prep work to be ready to sew this next week. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with from your new stash.
