Spin City Top Finished

Thanks Blogger for turning the photo on me!

Schnibbles pattern "Spin City" was made with Moda's Old Primrose Inn charm squares. A special thank you to Carol for gifting me this kit. I'll add this one to my "2 B quilted" pile.

I've decided to take a break from blogging for a bit. My home will finally be empty and quiet after the holidays and I seriously need to get some work done. We all know just how much of a time stealer blogging can be. Keep toasty!

Oh that is just cute! I love the fabrics! I'm going to miss seeing your inspiring posts, but I certainly understand the need to do other things and re-group after the busyness of the holidays. Have a fun break!

Pat said...

Enjoy your break. I was going to take one after my first year of posting EVERY day and everyone said, "Oh, no....don't DO that!!!" So....I'm still at it, but I do understand how time-consuming it can be. Luckily, I make very good use of the option that lets me pre-schedule posts! Anyway....enjoy your break and I hope you don't stay away too long as you will be missed. OH, yes....lovely quilt top, too.

Will check in with you off blog - as always. :o) Spin City is way cool! Carol is a sweetie to send that kit. You must have a bit of a stack piled up. Are you doing customer quilts this week? I'll bet you'll mop up the floor *wink* with us slacker quilters during your blogging break.

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

Love your "spin city" quilt---will miss you while you are on "break"--I know it is alot of work to do posts--as I can get really "crazy" on mine--and it takes lots of searching for the right clip art etc---so I can see why we all need a break now and then--Have fun!!!
Hugs, Di&co.

QuiltSue said...

We'll miss you. Come back soon.

Kim said...

Well, how much time will you need? A day? Two? I hope it's not too long because we'll miss you! Love your recent Schnibbles projects. I have a charm pack of the fabric you used for Spin City and I've been thinking about getting a second so I can use it for a Schnibbles project--yours turned out so nice!

Barb said...

Hey Girlfriend - that quilt turned out adorable. Enjoy your time away - sometimes it's a good thing to step away - it's amazing how much time blogging takes - so a break every now and then is OK. Enjoy - looking forward to when you come back - your always loads of inspiration.

Hugs - Karen

Teresa said...

I understand the need for a blog break, but do hope you will return to us when you get all the other stuff done. Thanks a bunch for the link to the free stitchery patterns. I just love the one she has for January and had seen a quilt I wanted to make that needed some sayings stitched on some of the blocks. Now where did I put that design?
