It has been an interesting week around here, not all in a good way. Hurricane Zeta was down to a tropical storm by the time it passed through our area early Thursday morning. Fortunately, we had made coffee before the storm knocked out the power. At least we didn't have to face the day without our caffeine fix! We didn't have any damage, but there were many trees down all over the area. We were without electricity for 16 hours on Thursday, and about 4 hours again on Friday. Just another couple of crazy days in 2020, but I know we were much luckier than many people.
My quilting time was productive for the week, with two sets of blocks being completed. I used 1.5 yards in the remaining blocks for the Alaska QAL, and also used 1.75 yards in Step 3 of Alycia's mystery. Here are some of the blocks from Steps 1 and 3.

Kate's 15 Minutes to Stitch challenge at Life in Pieces has us tracking how many days each week we get in at least 15 minutes of quilting time. I managed to get my 15 minutes every day last week, even the day we were without electricity due to Zeta. I couldn't use my sewing machine or iron, but I was able to sort through and cut up some scraps from the Alaska QAL, plus I played with some design ideas for how to make that quilt longer.
15 Minute Challenge:
