granted, 15 minutes a day may sounds much better, and who knows... we might bring it back next month if april doesn't prove to create any quilty results.
so to recap:
the goal was to sew at minimum 15 minutes a day in march.
this plan was put in place before i was scheduled to work from home and then ultimately put on unemployment on march 27.
so the majority of the month was also spent sewing around a daily work schedule.
number of days in march: 31, despite what april ludgate thinks
number of days sewn: 28 (+2 for days that were quilty related, but spent figuring out zoom for meetings)
i'd say that is quite a success rate, wouldn't you?
now, i know you're here for visuals... so i'll show you the FOUR quilt tops completed during this time frame. okay, maybe not the entire quilt top, just a little sneaky peek and the pattern so you can see what is going to be coming your way in the future when i'm allowed to go out in the world again.
i'm stoked with the result of this quilt, and ended up using the metallic grunge in the inner border of this quilt. i thought i was going to love the glitter grunge more, but the tones in the metallic were just perfect.
this was one of two quilt tops that mid last year i was on a chopping spree and cut out an entire quilt top set so that it was ready to go.
i really REALLY like how this one turned out, and will probably make it again in a larger size regardless of whether i keep it for myself or give it away as a gift (or a donation, like this one will be)
this one was the second quilt top i chopped up last year, and i was certain it was going to be a hot mess. EVERYTHING was from my stash, and i can tell you exactly what each piece came from. this will be another donation quilt when this quarantine is over.
this is the sew along that i started late on, changed my mind 3 times and then finished early... oh well!
it is made completely from kona cottons leftover from various paper pieced projects and solid white kona i bought from joann's. i guess it is a little too fitting that during this "stay home" time of life that i made a house quilt. and i have a whole set of other colors that didn't quite go well with this bunch... so there may be more houses.
i have already decided who this quilt is going to go home to... but i can't say anything because i may just have to finish it and mail it to them if this quarantine goes on any longer!
well, i've got a few things underway already that i've ordered some things for and will be waiting for them to arrive. yep. week 3 of quarantine means that i've hit the online shopping phase.
just a few things coming my way...
baby boy quilt (sewbrainy parallel paths)
baby girl quilt
festive fir quilt (another sewbrainy pattern - was march's WIP challenge quilt, but fell to the wayside with shops being closed.)
wonky stars quilt (april's WIP challenge)
ok... maybe a few is an understatement.
BUT i got 4 tops done last month with having to work at the same time. no work means more time to sew, right??
