    Good idea!
    People just don't realize how a small time commitment adds up over the longhaul - - Good for you - - making the suggestion!

    Count me in too. That should help keep me motivated. I just don't know why it is so hard to get motivated lately to do something that I love?

    I'd love to see the statistics of how much time I spend on quilting sites! My best guess would be a couple of hours per day. Even though I'm not a frequent poster I do a LOT of reading!

    That was my first thought. But I could commit to that.

    I have been doing this,...many times its cutting or placing pieces to get them ready to sew for the weekends. I get up 15 mins earlier each morning.

    I am in, too. Just saying I'm in will keep me motivated. I will feel guilty if I let you down. And, since the stupid time change I get up too early anyway.

    I try to do that already. I am not always able, but many days, 15min is all I get. At the moment, I'm working on hand tying a big quilt...at the rate I'm going, I'll be doing it for the rest of my life. :lol:

    I'm with you as long as looking at this quilting board for at least fifteen minutes applies! :lol:

    I'm in. It will help me get started on the day. I can always come back here for 15 mins. any time of day.

    I do read the 'Other" sew daily challenge. This idea works!

    There is another one, too? Oh, if it is on this board, please post the link ... I would much rather fill up my email box with these types of challenges that browsing some of the other threads I have gone through lately.
    Anyway, I am in on this one, too (with the others), though I didn't specifically say that in my last post.
    Already this morning, I have been prompted to start folding clothes to get my space open for quilting (my husband will appreciate that!)
    One of my projects is the new Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt, and because of this thread, I have been motivated to start gathering my fabric from around the bunkhouse to upload a picture of where I started.
    As a result of your challenge, I remembered two containers upstairs which hold an overabundance of pink and brown.
    Expect pictures later today, and I am so glad I found this thread

    I'll give it a try. I have a lot of trouble getting motivated so 15 minutes sounds good. Knowing me, once that 15 minutes is up, I'll want to continue sewing.

    I'm in with an accomodation for me. 15 minutes of quilting - cutting, stitching, etc and 15 minutes of cleaning/organizing related to quilting. I know which one will be easier for me.

    Great idea.

    Good Morning Omak,

    There is not another daily on this site that I know. The one I was refering to is on "ABOUT/QUILTING Forum". It has been there for many years. Another quilting forum is DELPHI Forums - The Quilting Bee.
    This site (Quiltedparadise) is the most active. I have been on here for 9 years, I think. It could be longer.

    Each site offers good ideas.

    I will join in! I try to get some sewing time in during the early morning, as it gives me time to pray also! :)

    I can't commit because I have to commit to spending 15 min. a day doing something like housework, laundry. I spend the rest of my day "quilt related" in some why. Learning from here, cutting, piecing, quilting....I wish there were more hours in a day. By the time I go to bed, I'm all quilted out, but I lay there thinking hmmmmm how would this work. I
    m consumed, addicted, an I love every minute of it.

    I love this idea. I know I can commit 15 minutes to quilting. Now I will try to commit to no more than 15 minutes a day on this board. That won't be so easy! TeeHee

    I try to do this as well although I also count knitting or embroidery in the 15 minutes. Friends are always surprised by how much I get done. My BQF is a person that only likes to sew when she has several hours free to do so. I'm trying to convince her to give my way a try...
