Last Year's Resolution...

In 2008 I set a plan to complete one sewing project a month. First I thought I could handle taking a class once a month and getting a quilt out of each class. Then I decided maybe table runners and wall hangings could count. Finally I decided any sewing & project completion was good - no great...but only if there was no pressure.

*~*~*~*~*~*
In 2009 I didn't set a goal.
I had big plans for a word/motto for the year.
That didn't happen either.

I did however take a quilt class this weekend. And best of all...I got the entire top done in one day. I have an appointment to quilt in during spring break. Yeah for me.

I worked with one wonderful fabric that isn't in my typical blue and green favorites.


Maybe it was the '70's party that inspired me to chose this fabric.

The pattern is called Recess...and I tell you...it felt like recess all day as I made it.



It is tough to really capture the quilt in a photo, especially without the quilting done yet...
but here it is BQ (before quilting).



By the way...I am keeping this quilt for me.
I haven't ever made a quilt just for me before.

Beautiful quilt! The colors are so bright and cheerful. Who gets it? Where are you going to put it?

These are much better pictures then the ones you took of the lamb "parts" BTW - could you please forward those to me since it's Becky's lamb's parts (hee hee) We need to add that to her 4H book - thanks, see you Thurs.

You've got talent. I thought I might take up quilting once......Haven't got there quite yet. The fabric is so sunny!
