Sew 15 Minutes a Day

Okay - I just realized that we are linking on Tuesdays - this is on my calendar now....!

Saturday March 3rd - Went to a workshop and saw other's progress.  I cut pieces for the rectangle part of my LibRR.

Free Motion Quilt AlongSunday March 4th - Nothing with fabric.

Monday March 5th - Nothing with fabric.

Tuesday March 6th - Sewed part one Block 9 for the FMQAYGQAL -

Wednesday March 7th- Sewed part two Block 9 for the FMQAYGQAL.

Thursday March 8th -  Sewed Block 10 for the FMQAYGQAL.

Friday March 9th - Went to workshop - forgot glasses so I left again.  Sewed my Block 12 for the FMQAYGQAL. And got my blog entries for that posted!

Below this updated for these days:

Saturday March 10th - Went to workshop.  Eleanor Burns's sister gave a talk showing quilts and new patterns - I practiced sewing on the mini Jenome machine (wonderfully light in weight, but can only sew with a 1/4 inch foot - no darning foot, etc.). When I returned home I finished stippling the sample sandwich and added a feather to one of the other samples.  I made a new quilt sandwich to practice the all over quilting pattern - then will trim my sandwiches to join together.

Sunday March 11th - (sore throat) In the evening I worked on filling in one of the 'corners' of my practice piece for Leal Day.  Every once in awhile the thread would sort of double up so I'd have to cut it and hide the ends and start again.

Monday March 12th - (ill) nothing with fabric

Tuesday March 13th - (ill) nothing with fabric

Before next Tuesday I hope to sew blocks 13 and and 14 for FMQAYGQAL and do the quilting on the sandwich I basted last week for Leah Day's Free Motion Quilt A Long.

Before the end of the month I hope to sew at least one block for the BlockLotto, and to finish the Match SewCalGal FMQ challenge.

ASAP I need to figure out how to post several photos - in a slide show.  I have photos still to post for my Marston/Moran workshop and now photos for the Eleanor Burns talk too!

The Second Liberated Round Robin will be starting soon - hope anyone reading this will join in the project!
