Time to Stitch - A Stitch in Time - Project Quilting Season 9, Project 5

A Stitch in Time is the fifth challenge of 
for
Project Quilting.

My entry is
Time to Stitch



She announces a challenge and you have one week to create something quilty.
Prizes can be won and it's a great way to meet new blogging friends.


When the challenge, 
"A Stitch in Time" was announced
my thoughts went back to pre-blogging days 
when I really didn't have a platform to share my projects
or
any challenges to push myself to be better. 

So I decided to dedicate this challenge to my stitch in time,
my blog.

It motivates me everyday, has given me so many friends, and is definitely a time in my life.


Almost 4 years ago to the day, 
I was the recipient of the best gift ever from my mentor and friend,
Mdm Samm.

She made this logo for my blog.

It really made this little blog look better and it really fits me.

I've changed the font in places and dissected the logo for watermarks and business cards
and it has become my brand.
So, for this challenge, I made a wall hanging to show my stitch in time.

I broke the logo down to pieces and appliqued the pieces with 


I cut the letters out in the same way and then the thread painting and quilting began.

Here's the back to show more.



Choosing the binding color was harder at 3 am (4 if you figure the time change... lol)
than it would normally be, so I took a picture and decided on red.
I kind of wish I would have chosen black, but then, I'm always second guessing my decisions.


I've been wanting to make this for a long time
to remember these blogging times.

This challenge was perfect.

Carla, I've always admired your logo and blog name, thinking it was perfect for you! Now to have it actually stitched out as a wall hanging is so cool! You definitely do a great job "Creatin' In The Sticks".

I never could find out why Mdm. Samm disappeared. I miss her a lot.

charlotte said...

I love that you stitched this up! I looks great!

Jenny said...

It looks wonderful, congratulations!
Perhaps you can help - I'm another reader who used to enjoy Mdm Samm. Has she stopped blogging completely, or changed the blog name perhaps? I do hope you can answer, for Carol (comment above), and myself, and anyone else who has been left wondering.
Many thanks, Jenny
