12 x 12–Idiom theme

This will catch up the group’s output so far (July theme).  Sadly I did not complete a quilt for this theme either (my excuse this time was a back injury which involved lots of drugs) but I do have an idea and hope to have three quilts to show at the September meeting.

Diane chose “as high as a kite.”


Melinda picked “hold your tongue” and “button your lip” and named her quilt Quiet Zone.


Mary Ann’s idiom “burning the candle at both ends” was perfect for her as I think she must never sleep.

Sharyn selected “as full as a tick.”

Kathy chose “back to square one.”


Linda depicted “time flies.”


Vicki showed multiple scenarios of  “fish out of water.”


Karen portrayed her personal vision of “cut loose.”

Bonnie depicted “It’s a piece of cake.”


I won’t tell you the idiom I plan to depict in case (as usually happens for me with these little art projects) I have to change my mind 🙂


About quiltfever

I retired in 2004 and have never missed the 8-5 grind even for a minute. Now I spend my time reading, traveling, quilting and trying to learn new things like Spanish and blogging.

  3. What is it with backs this summer? My husband needed back surgery out of the blue. I hope your recovery is as swift as his, and that we get to see your idiom quilt soon.

  4. Hope your back gets better soon so you can join in the fun!

    As always – very creative interpretations of the theme. This challenge looks like it has been a lot of fun – I know you have inspired many people to give the 12×12 a try.
