I can already see in my busy schedule that I will have some days where I will not get my 15 minutes of sewing time on this project. That does not mean that I am not sewing at all, in fact, I have so many projects that I absolutely need to get done for the shop or a show that I just don't have an extra 15 minutes to spare on playing around. I also know that I will be missing a few days of sewing time because I will be traveling out of town. But when I am in town I will try and set aside this 15 minutes for this one project. It is hard to put it down once I get started and the 15 minutes turns into 30 minutes. Anyway…here is what I got done last night!
Two 4" string pieced squares. Yep, that's it! That's all I could get done in 15 minutes. I did not use muslin to piece these blocks. Instead, I used pages from a telephone book. It is absolutely awesome to use! Not only is it a great way to recycle those old phone books that we have, but the paper is much thinner than regular copy paper or newsprint so it is much easier to remove!
I still am thinking of what to make, but it will come to me. Probably at 3am when I can't sle
Hi Everyone! My name is Melanie Barrett and I have been quilting for 15 short years now. I worked in a quilt shop for 7 of those years and I owned a quilt shop for the other 8. Recently I decided to close the brick and mortar store and concentrate on online sales. My favorite types of quilts to make are small and mini size. I don't have a favorite fabric style, I like them all. I find that my tastes change as I grow up!
