4 x 7 Sewing Challenge

Sarah over at Berry Barn Designs has come up with an awesome sewing challenge:  sew 30 minutes a day for the month of February.  My goal has been to incorporate sewing/quilting into every day; however, life always seems to get in the way.  Sarah's challenge will be a way to make myself accountable to this goal.  So here goes.....

Day 1
Finally decided on a pattern for the Kona Sunset charm pack I won back in the fall.  The beginning of some HST's:

Laundry needed to be done, so toss in a load, set the timer for 30 minutes. and then start sewing.  Tomorrow's goal will be to cut the squares in half and press open.  The key to the challenge will be small achievable goals for each day.

What's interrupting your ability to sew 30 minutes day?  Good luck to us all.

  2. good challenge! Love those colors, that was the same stack used in the Fox quilt!

  3. Love those Kona charms! Glad you've taken up the challenge!

  4. Hmmm... I am thinking about that challenge too. Your HSTs look yummy!

  5. That's a very good way to knock a bunch of the Kona colors off the list (you know you want to!)
