Fifteen Minute Challenge - Week 16

I've spent way more than 15 minutes in the sewing room every day this week - it's Christmas Crunch Time!

Tuesday - basted the Grinch
Wednesday - pieced Rudolph
Thursday-Monday - quilted the Grinch, made doll clothes
Monday - borders on Rudolph

So far the Grinch has diamond cross-hatching. I haven't decided if I want to do a couple of extra lines in there. I think it'll depend on time - I need to get Rudolph basted today so I can quilt while the Dude is at school. Rudolph's quilting will be even simpler than the Grinch's, so if I get done by Friday, I can add lines to the Grinch.
 I tried drawing the extra lines, but, um, I can't draw with a mouse. I think it will look good {with thread} so I hope I have enough time.

I'm going to spend this week's 15 minutes prepping the binding for both of them, so they'll be good to go by next week. Oh, crap, I need to be ready for Christmas by next week! Okay, I need to spend 15 minutes each day ordering presents, and 15 minutes each day baking cookies, and 15 minutes wrapping presents, and...

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


  1. You better do the ordering tonight because the shipping time is getting close!


  2. oh my goodness, how will we get it all done?! haha. Sounds like you are being very productive - love the crosshatch, & the added lines will make it even better!

  3. Love the Rudolph quilt, that is my absolute all time favorite Christmas show. The Grinch is looking good! You've been very busy.

    I'm going to be on the same schedule as you, sew for 15 minutes, wrap for 15 minutes, etc. It's that time of year!
