A Little Late, But Still A Finish

A little over a year ago I got some pretty exciting news. I submitted a quilt to the Moda Bake Shop and it was accepted. I couldn’t believe I was going to have a quilt in the MBS, I mean does it get much better than that for a quilting nobody? I think not! Well about that same time life threw me a curve ball, a pretty ugly one at that. My life was turned upside down. Little did I know at the time, that curve ball was going to be one of the best things that ever happened to me. Sometimes it is hard to remember that there is a rainbow at the end of most storms :) Anyway, other than a few Bee blocks, I haven’t sewn in over a year. Partly because I lost all desire, I didn’t have room, and I didn’t have the time to do it.

The storm eventually cleared and the rainbow appeared. I now have the desire, energy, space, and time to start quilting again. YEA! The first thing on my list was the old MBS project. It is now too late for me to post it, but I still needed to finish it. So for the past few days I worked my rear off to get it done.

It may be VERY LATE and it didn’t make it to MBS, but it is still a finish (still needs quilting), and I am still proud of it!


I have a few other tops to finish up and then I am going to put my machine on the quilting frame and start quilting them all. I have about 5-6 tops to quilt. Luckily I have the Frame and that should make it go pretty fast, I hope :)

It's so pretty Rene! And I'd say giving up your spot in the bake shop was well worth it considering all the other goodness you have in your life right now! :0)
