When you just gotta quilt….

Most of my readers know that I am a CPA and this time of year is busy, busy, busy!!!

Consequently, I have spent VERY little time in my studio, telling myself that it was better to push to finish my work rather than have creative time.

This past Saturday I hit the tipping point!! I was sitting in my office trying to work but completely unable to function.

I realized that since I wasn’t accomplishing anything there, maybe I should spend the afternoon in my studio….

And I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to work on…..

At our guild quilt show last month, I found this panel and just HAD to have it…..

In 15 minutes I had the quilt sandwich together and started quilting!!

I began with the background, switching between Swirls, Paisleys, and loops…..

It was so freeing to just quilt without worrying about WHAT I was going to quilt.

When I got to the top, I decided to try one of the “grid-quilting” designs that I have been playing with. I took a few minutes to mark the grid…..

….and started quilting…..

It was fun to see how good it looked when the lines were washed out…..

I added some arcs to the “pyramid” quilt…..

….and some wonky lines to the log cabin quilt…..

In just a few hours it was finished and bound…..

When I was finished I walked out of my studio without tidying anything up…..

THAT can happen on another day!!

It was a fantastic break for me and now I think that I can push my way thru this next week, knowing that happier quilting times are just around the corner!!

If you enjoy this daily blog, please share it with your friends!!!

Thank you…….
