I'm having a wonderful time connecting with quilters and enjoying quilts here in Raleigh, North Carolina. I'll share more photos and stories once I'm home.

I'm giving two lectures while I'm here, Rules and Options of Planned Improv Piecing and Building a Color Palette. Thank you to everyone who is watching live at QuiltCon or from home!

One of the last things on my to do list before QuiltCon was to make a selvage name tag. (Because I've been admiring all the people making name tags.) The fabric was sitting on my cutting table. I knew I didn't have much time if I was going to participate in this week's Project QUILTING challenge. I was considering another mug rug. But then I realized that the Hourglass challenge theme would work with my name tag. Twofer!

So here's my little name tag, approximately 1"x3" finished with tiny little hourglass blocks on each end.

Thanks for visiting! I'm linking up on Kim's blog for the Project QUILTING Hourglass challenge. Lots of time left to still participate this week. Next challenge drops on March 3 when I'm the Ultimate Weekly Sponsor! I hope you'll join us.


This week's Project QUILTING challenge is Inside Out.

I took inspiration from my project for the last challenge for this week's project. I opted for making units in a variety of sizes and added triangles to the corners with selvage exposed. The selvage is my inside on the outside of my quilt.

I took my final stitch at 2:20am Sunday morning. My mini quilt is 17.25" x 20.5", quilted with graffiti quilting in two colors of Aurifil 50 wt, #4093 Jade and #2560 Iris.
