Time Out

Last winter, I made and presented my first QOV.
There are no words to describe
how it made me feel when it was presented.
I vowed then and there that I would make one a year
for as long as I am able.

Completing this top was my January OMG.
I didn’t accomplish my goal,
but it was completed on February 1st,
which just happened to be the QOV Sew-in date.
(I am often a day late, but certainly not a dollar short!)
Thank you, Patty, for hosting OMG
and keeping me focused on my project.

Originally intended to be 60 x 78”
I eliminated one top to bottom 6” row 
And the top and bottom borders,
For a finish measuring 54 x 68”.


I am very excited to be preparing to go to
QuiltCon in Austin, on Thursday and Friday.
I am already loading up my new tote bag
with goodies and necessities.

Sheila, of Sheila's Quilt World, gifted me this tote
just before I left for Texas in November.
Lovingly pieced from selvedge edges,
this is my first tote ever!
I have never made one for myself.
Thank you so much, Sheila!
It has already received so many compliments,
even just today at my LQS.

Since completing my QOV top, I have been
in a little bit of a quilt making slump,
so I decided to take a time out
and just work on small things.

Speaking of time out,
Crafty Daughter and I were walking the dog
at a local city park,
when we came across this oddly placed bench.

I couldn’t resist having a seat,
and I just laughed and laughed.
I have decided that this is a time out bench
for parents to use in a pinch.

Thanks for popping in to visit.
Wish I had more to share!
See you at QuiltCon?
