Tuesday Update - 15 Minute Challenge

I started this challenge last Thursday, and this is what I've done for the last 5 days:

March 17 - cut 2" squares and sewed squares together
March 18 - pressed units and sewed together to make 4-patches
March 19 - wound 4 bobbins and sewed pieces together
March 20 - pressed units, cut squares and sewed pieces together
March 21 - pressed units, and sewed pieces together

I haven't taken any pictures of my progress, but at least there has been a little of it. Now I have to get myself a design wall to make the quilt assembly a bit easier.

15 Minutes a Day

I decided to take the 15 Minute Challenge - you can find more about it here.

I'm aiming for 15 minutes a day. Hopefully it will help me actually accomplish something. I'm assuming that things like pressing blocks, and crocheting will count. ;-)

Maple Leaf Blocks

Well, it's Wednesday, and these were on my cutting table...


They were made for a block swap for an online group of which I'm a member. Only one or two of the other swappers might read my blog, so I think it's safe to post this. ;-)

Hope you're having a lovely sewing day!

Cutting Table Wednesday

So what's on my cutting table today?

Well, for one thing, there's a brand new cutting mat!



That's because the cutting table is brand new too.
 This lovely piece was a Christmas present from my DH. He truly spoils me!


This table is from Eddycrest, and was delivered in February. Both sides lift up to create a larger top. There are drawers at the front, and a slot to store rulers, etc., with cubby holes at the back for even more storage.

I finished a top for a cat quilt today, made entirely from 2" squares - but that's a photo for another day.

What's on YOUR table today?
