Day 5: Halloween Mini Quilt


I am participating in the 31 Days writing challenge. I'm using this for accountability to help myself complete projects from my sewing to-do list and finish up Christmas gifts.


Ahh, Sunday, a day to relax and do a little sewing just for myself. In fact every Sunday this month I am dedicating to selfish sewing. Since I have two projects that are time sensitive (holiday mini quilts) Sunday seems like a nice day to take a break from the rest of my sewing to-do list.

Awhile back I picked up some Halloween fabric to make a mini and now I'm finally making the time to sew it up.


This morning I woke up about an hour earlier then the rest of the house. So I snuck downstairs for a little quiet time before church. I managed to get most of my Halloween mini cut out before Derek and Nora woke up. Yay, for some alone time!


After making lunch/dinner, I spent a little more time working on my mini. Now that my sewing area is in the family room, we can still spend time together and I can get some sewing accomplished. Actually this afternoon Derek even worked on our unfinished bathroom! Nora was happy playing, coloring, and generally being a toddler. Yay all around!


Derek so kindly put Nora to bed so I could finish sewing up this mini! I just love the way it turned out. Now I'm just deciding if I want to add a scrappy border, which I'm kinda leaning to since it would help with the binding that I plan on using. Hopefully after completing another quilt top this week I will have time to finish working on this mini later this week!

I have accomplished more sewing this week, than I have in a few weeks. So very thankful I decided to participate in 31 Days, this was just the kick in the pants I needed to stay on top of my every growing to-do list and with the added accountability of blogging is really helping me as well.

Happy Sewing!
