5 Minutes!!

Phew! I finally have 5 minutes to myself. It's been a busy weekend, with lots happening besides work! I did have a little time on Sunday morning and used it wisely.

I found this lovely piece of fleece on Etsy and was hoping I could used it for my blue and white wintry quilt, but I got all carried away and have made the top far too big. LOL Never mind, it's a lovely piece of fleece and I will use it up for something else.
Speaking of my wintry quilt, here's what I did on Sunday morning! I had all the white and check fabric cut ready to piece some shashing and corner stones, so it really didn't take long to put them together into their rows.
If I get a little more me time over the next few days I'll make a start on putting the rows together and giving some serious thought to my borders.
Now don't be silly, you know planning in advance just doesn't happen here. I do however have quite a bit of all of the fabrics left, so it just remains to plan how I want the borders to look. Then I have to find something to back it with. I already have my recycled pop bottles for batting!

Do you see my project boxes for some of my BOMs there on the table? I haven't even had much time for stitching this weekend.

The quilt is looking good. I'm enjoying seeing it come together. Now you'll have us intrigued with your border planning.

That winter quilt is looking very nice. I think I need to look through your posts and see what you have made... I need to make at least 3 baby quilts and I keep thinking about the fun things you have come up with, especially for one certain child-to-be.

Your winter quilt is going to be lovely with those pretty blues and sparkly snow flakes. I agree, the fleece would have been perfect.
