Challenge Day 27

It's day 27 of my 31 Day Challenge.  It was a long day today with waking up early for "Lowe's".  I finally started quilting at about 6:30 tonight.  I did get one row done and will for sure finish it tomorrow.  It takes about 15 minutes per row.



 I'm doing a freehand overall swirl and think it's fitting for this Christmas quilt.

Here are some of my samples I did up while at the quilt shops this week.  It felt like I was sewing curves for the first time because I was sewing standing up on a machine I've never used before!  


...and I found this beautiful linen fabric with a polka dot at the Needle and I here in Everett.  

 I can't wait to use it and hopefully soon!

The kids and I are heading to Utah on Thursday and as I'm sitting here, I just realized that my 31 days ends on Friday!!  ....so..since this is my challenge I think I'm allowed to change the rules just a bit, so after I get back from Utah I'm going to continue my challenge for 8 more days.  The two days I'll miss for going out of town, the 4 Sundays I took off and the 2 days I missed for demoing at the Quilt Shops.  I still have tomorrow and Wednesday though!

I love flexibility - go for it
Enjoy your days away with the children and come back refreshed ready to finish your challenge so you are able to play with those lovely samples and that delicious linen fabric (I fancy some stunning acid green with that grey)

30 days is 30 days - who says they have to be consecutive? You go, girl!
