15 Minute Challenge GT&SB

Although it was a solid 7 out of 7 I didn't get as much sewing done as what I would have liked this week.

The plan was for this week to be back on to the borders for Springtime Romance but all I have managed to do is piece them.  I also underestimated the amount I needed so the borders are slightly more pieces than what I would have liked and I will have to revisit the requirements list.  The extra joins will able to be hidden behind appliqué but I had planned to have them in single lengths but I forgot that you can only get 3 full lengths of 12 1/2" not 4 from a piece of fabric.  The patterns for the borders are based on 10" width so not so big a deal on the requirements list.

This week I got back to the Green Tea and Sweet Beans BOM. I'm a couple of months behind, and it took me a couple  of nights to cut out the 2 of the tulip blocks but I only managed to stitch 1.  There are lots of pieces, but it went together beautifully.

So how was your week? Hope you had plenty of stitching time.  Head to Kate's to see how everyone is travelling.

At least you were able to get the borders done with the fabric you had and you weren't short on that front. Love the tulip block. Lots of pieces in that one, no wonder you got one stitched. Have a great week.
