Some of This; Some of That - 3/31

Two things:  Like Barbara Black, I'm looking for another life-time leader and ender, And I'm considering one that consists of (792) 2 3/4"  log cabins. Now that's teeny. So am I crazy or what?  I'm going to prep another one and see how it works as a leader and ender.  The quilt is in the book, A Bouquet of Quilts, edited by Jennifer Rounds and Cyndy Lyle Rumer. These are 9 projects from the magazine, Quilt Japan.  I'd like to make all of them.   But that's not realistic.

The other involves my Create your own BOM This month I was to work on my Anna's Garden by Lori Smith.                   I have to
make 4 of these: for a         9 1/2"  block so they must measure 3 1/2" square. Another small block.  My problem is I cut the pieces exactly as the pattern called for, sewed scant 1/4"  seams, and lost my points when I trued it up to the required 3 1/2".  What did I do wrong?  Using scraps, made another - this time I cut the white large triangle and the bottom brown triangles an 1/8" bigger, and left the other measurements the same.  That gave me two correct points but messed up the other three. I looked online for any corrections and found nothing. Arggh.  Then I tried making those smallish HSTs in the center a 1/8" smaller and I got three points correct, but the two at the top would be way off.  Sigh.  Any one have a suggestion?  BTW - these three tiny blocks are the only thing on my design wall.  That means minuscule progress this month on my BOM, but I did begin on the prepping of another applique block for that quilt.
I hope to select fabric today and get going.
Now for the stash report: Used .24 yd for the last border of the neonatal quilt.  Another .06 for those teeny blocks. Then some bee scraps to a friend - .02. Sandwiched a quilt and that used up 1.34 yds. Lastly, 1.5 yds to Guild. New YTD total for this week is 37.12 yds of destashing.

As to 15 minutes to Stitch 2019, I was able to stitch every day - yeah!  Stats are
15 minute days/week = 7/7 days
15 minute days/March = 28/30 days
15 minute days/2019 = 86/89 days
Success rate = 96.66%


Finally, I've started the quilting on that sandwiched UFO. It's for the Guild's 50% Challenge. We have to finish a quilt we're 50% done on.  This is the first block completed  after the SITD quilting:

  2. You've got some tiny blocks there. The log cabin should be a fun L&E. Congrats on finding time to stitch each day this week. All your quilting stats look awesome.
