15 minutes progress

 Yay, I am still holding at 100% on my 15 minutes of sewing per day.

I finished binding Journey to Arizona this morning and now have 2 finishes for 2021.

This quilt does have a fun story.  My husband had a desire to walk/bike/hike from our home to the Arizona border (257 miles).  This quilt tells our story. This link will take you to photos and stories of our journey.

  • Each log in the braid represents 1 mile.  
  • White sections are one day and black sections are another day.
  • I stitched the dates into the beginning log of each day section.
  • Yellow squares:  Hubby walked alone
  • Purple squares:  We walked together
  • Orange squares:  We biked together
  • Green squares:  He biked alone
  • The panel at the bottom is a filler piece, but it is a print that looks just like the beautiful country we journeyed in.
I have to say that we walked/biked through the prettiest country in our beautiful state!
