Hello, my name is Luggage

February 19th, 2012

I’ve either made a super mini-quilt or I’ve made a super-colossal, gargantuan nametag. Lots of nametag making going on at guild (Portland Modern Quilt Guild) and I couldn’t wait to get started on one myself.  Ever since I saw Faith’s nametag on her flickr and part of her Mini Quilt Monday series - I knew I wanted one too. I love everything Faith does and makes.  Faith pretty much could have quilted a little “Dentist appointment, 9:45 on Monday” tag and I would have loved it - she’s THAT rockem sockem brilliant.

I started on mine - and what started out to be nametag size…
Super mini-quilt (aka my super colossal gargantuan nametag WIP)

… has now grown to cafeteria tray size. How did that happen?!

I’ve added a zippered pocket to my nametag’s back… now I’ve practically made luggage.

Oh well, at least it makes my butt look smaller than a regular nametag.  Diet tip:  Surround yourself with over-sized objects.
