"Time Is" • 14" x 15"

Terrie: "My intention was to create a small art quilt on time management. Managing my time was important when I was working but I have discovered that I need to manage my time even more carefully in retirement. Because others are involved in my club activities and my varied interests, my days fly by quickly thus the blurry image of the clock's face. I am unhappy with the traditional look of the added border strips and am unsure as to how to make this quilt more exciting."

Kaye: "I unpicked the entire quilt, including each border, and took off the clock faces and the card. I repieced the quilt, adding circle fabrics and separating the time saying leaving a space at the top of the quit where the owner could write one last time message in her own handwriting. I searched various thrift stores to see if I could find clock faces and hands in different sizes. I decided the best way to quilt this pieces was to do it with circles. Since I have a Bernina circle attachment, I made random circles overlapping each other to express the movement of time."
