Some of This; Some of That 3/24

One of my design walls has three of my Hexie WIPs on hold. That's to remind me to work on them. Most of the time it doesn't help.

What with returning from the retreat, volunteer work, family obligations and grandchildren childcare I was only able to use 0.26 yds for a neonatal quilt's two borders.  I did cull stash again and pulled out another yard to give away at Guild.  My new YTD total is 33.98 yds.

For 15 Minutes to Stitch in 2019 - I only had five days where I was successful in doing some handwork and piecing. A setback for me.  But I was able to change my main design wall from this
to this

The neonatal must be at least 30" square. The center is some blocks I made playing with scraps. One more border to add.  That little house is what I pulled and pieced  out of a scrap bag one day.  I'm thinking of building a lap quilt around it with that center as the tiniest medallion.  We'll see. So my latest report for stitchin in March:

15 minute days/week = 5/7 days
15 minute days/Mar = 21/23 days
15 minute days/2019 = 79/82 days
Success rate = 96.34%

I'm linking to Oh, Scrap, Sunday Stash, 15 Minutes to Stitch 2019, and Design Wall Monday as well as Can I get a Whoop, Whoop?, and Monday Making. How did you do - quilty wise - last week? I'd like to know.  Blessings,


  1. That's going to be SEW sweet for the NICU babies!!

  2. You have some gorgeous projects on your design wall. Your NICU quilt is very cute and colorful. Even if this week wasn't stellar on the stitching front, you've done well at finding time to stitch most of the time. Hope this week is less hectic. Thank you for linking up the the 15 minutes to stitch.


Thank you for stopping by. It's always nice to hear from you. I try to reply to each and every one of you, but sometimes life gets in the way. I hope you understand. Blessings.
