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!!

Good for you to take some “me time!”
I can’t wait to see this fun piece up close, a perfect way to spend creative time in your studio.
