Spring is springing up all around us in Georgia, thanks to a stretch of beautifully warm and sunny days this week. We decided it was a good time to get out of the house for a day and made the drive to Gibbs Gardens in Ball Ground, GA. The main feature at Gibbs is daffodils. According to their website, they have over 200 varieties of daffodils, with a total of over 20 million plants! It's still early in the season, and we hope to get back there in a few weeks to see even more blooms.
There is some significant stash usage to report this week, not because I did that much cutting and sewing, but because I finally added up the numbers for the yardage used in my completed Grassy Creek quilt top. My 64" x 79" top took 5.5 yards of fabric for the piecing, plus 1-1/8 yard for the border. My other usage for the week was 3/4 yard for my green Scrap Magnet blocks, shared in yesterday's post. There were no new additions to the stash last week.

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. It was tough getting some time on the day we went to the gardens, but I did manage to do a little stitching after we got back. Every other day had plenty of time for quilting.
15 Minute Challenge for 2021:
3/7 - 3/13 7 of 7 days
2021 Total 72 of 72 days
Happy quilting everyone!
