Fifteen Minute Challenge - Week 12

My fifteen minutes of Christmas sewing were the only non-craft-show sewing I got to do this week, so I'm very grateful for the forced opportunity to do some piecing.
Tuesday - pieced Rows 1 & 2
Wednesday - pieced Rows 3 & 4
Thursday - pieced sashing, Rows 1 & 2
Friday - pieced sashing, Rows 3 & 4
Saturday - nothing :(
Sunday - pieced all rows together
Monday - pieced backing, started plan for borders
It definitely needs a skinny red border to tie it all together. Then I have green and white Grinch-y fabric for the back, of which I can cut 3" borders. I think. I need to double check my math before cutting!

As leaders and enders, I pieced 2.5" squares for the Christmas Stars.
So now I have a box full of those to press and add as a border. Which needs to be done before I can start the Advent Calendar, which will be made of the leftover charms.

Check out how others are managing their time at Life in Pieces!


  1. Cute Christmas quilt. You are much better at leader/enders than I am. I end up working on that project instead of the other ones.

  2. What are leaders/enders? Anyway, your quilt looks great! Can't wait to see the final product. Great week!

  3. I've never done a leader/ender quilt but they sound like a good way to do two quilts at once. I love the fabrics you have stashed in that box.

    It still looks like you had a good week with your 15 minutes here and there. Im going to try and make this week a really productive one. So much to do - so little time!

  4. I keep hearing about leaders & enders quilts but I think I'd need to get a better handle on my scraps. Perhaps I should spend some 15 Minutes' on those. Congrats on your progress this week.

  5. Love how the Grinch quilt is coming out. Looks like you had a great week.
