I managed to make a start on the Starburst quilt, got a label sewn onto another quilt, the binding cut and partially assembled for Mon Ami. So it really was a productive day even though turned out not to really be an all day sew in.
Overall it was a productive week.
I managed to stitch six out of seven days, one of my better weeks recently.
It's the last Tuesday in November (scary thought as that means December is almost here), so it's time to wrap up this month's theme of using mood boards to foster your creativity. Mood boards are collage of colors/images/text often used by designers to convey a look or concept. Last week I showed a mood board for the Starburst quilt. After doing a bit more looking in the stash, I updated the board to include some other potential stash fabrics as well as mock blocks.
I can see where this might be useful if you don't finish a quilt immediately and it gets put away for a while. You'd get an idea what you were contemplating at the time if you kept the mood board with the project. It's definitely a design tool I'm going to explore further.
One last note this week. After two years of the 15 Minute Challenge posts, I've decided not to continue the challenge in 2014. The challenge has been very good for me and I've met some very lovely people through all the challenge link ups. But it's starting to feel stale and I'm ready to move on to something else. At this point, I don't have any thoughts on a replacement challenge, but something may come to me in the next month. There will be 5 more challenge posts in December, the last being on New Year's Eve. I'll have to think of how to end the challenge with a bang, so I hope you'll stick with me for the last month.
So how did your week go? Did you find any time to stitch? Link up below and share you success or challenges with time management.
