Quilt block contest, and kitchen towel


I decided to enter one of my med tech quilt blocks in Quilt Story's "Block" Party today.  It was very hard to pick one, but I finally decided on my "mononucleosis" square.  Maybe it's because we're all sick here...

I have not 1, but 2 kids home sick today, and I was sick much of the week-end, so I didn't get a whole lot of sewing done.  I did however make a quick kitchen towel.  It's nice to make a little "pallet cleanser" project when I finish something big.  It's a way to get a bit of quick satisfaction and change gears before starting another big project!

I also tried out some glow in the dark thread, which I'm really excited about.  I just need to figure out how to get a good picture of it.  But for now, nursing duties are calling....

I just found you through your Quiltstory entry, but I LOVE your med tech quilt. I'm a trained microbiologist who went back to school to train to be a med tech. Unfortunately, the boss won't let me have time off to do the required internship before certification, but since he continued to employ me in his micro research lab, I'm not going to complain too loud! I love each of your blocks and the thought you put into them and the little explanations of everything. It was a good review of some of those things for me, but I bet it was a real eye-opening learning experience for many others. Such a clever and inspiring idea. If I was voting, you'd win, hands down!
