It'll be awhile

Figured I'd start with another picture from my 'archives'.  This quilt was made for a boy's group home.  Boy's ages 13 - 18 > not an easy age group to come up with a theme!  I had the deer preprinted pillow panels so actually designed the quilt around them.  I really like the maple leaf block so incorporated it and the leaf designs are from Nita's Thread Nest.  Working with the panels, I find that you really have to 'build' the quilt around them.  You can see where I used 'spacers' to help fill out the rows - but it works and I really liked this quilt when I was done with it.
So  "It'll be awhile" before I blog again.  Actually probably not long enough to be missed, but I do try to blog ever couple days.  I will be leaving Tues morning for Disney with my son and his family and won't be back until late Sat. evening.  I will have a very busy weekend and will be lucky to find time to even sit at my machine.  I did read, though, that today was "National Quilting Day" so I will try to do something quilty.  Maybe I can get a quilt on the frame and prepare for quilting.  I received some really cute quilt tops in the mail that need to be quilted for Quilters for Comfort - so it's not like I don't have anything to do :-)
Until next time - be happy, be healthy and tell those you love that you do!
