...it's TIME to quilt! I didn't get to as much as I wanted to this week, but I was able to start and finish this great patchwork clock. When I saw it online a few weeks back, I just had to make one! I forget where I saw it first, one blog or another, but I was led once again to an inspiring ezine, Fat Quarterly. The pattern, by Sylvie Roussel, was in the "Paper" issue #8. I purchased the ezine, ordered a clock movement for around $7 on ebay, got a cheapy embroidery hoop at the local Hobby Lobby and I was ready to go. A bit of color and paper piecing later, and wha-la! I'm very happy with how it turned out. It hangs within easy viewing distance from my sewing area. Wouldn't this be a great gift to make for a crafy or quilty friend? Or make some together at your next Bee meeting! Well... this one is here to stay and we'll see if I get around to making another anytime soon. Hop on over to FQ and check it out.
