Holy Smoke Batman

That is what she said!

I am a little late in posting this awesome quilt I made. Is that a bit of arrogant of myself to say that my own quilt is "awesome"? Well, I don't care. It is awesome!

See, I know this wonderfully terrific, talented, sweet, creative, caring person who does not want to make quilts anymore. Ophelia is her name. You can find her here.



Reconnecting with friends was on her mind. And, well that is just what we did. In January. At Starbucks. We caught each other up on our lives. We used to work together in a local quilt shop that has gone out of business.

Ophelia found out that the dearest thing to my heart is making quilts for babies who are born while there daddies are deployed. She decided to give me most of her fabric stash. You see, journaling is what is important to her. Documenting life's good and bad, sharing and caring and being creative in other ways besides in fabric.


This is the quilt that I made for her out of a wonderful bundle of shabby Robyn Pandolph fabrics that I found in the loads of fabric. I should have taken a picture of the back of my car. You wouldn't believe the motherload!!


When I gave Ophelia her quilt, she said "Holy Smoke Batman, Girl you are the greatest". It is hilarious getting together with her. Anytime there is something that she loves or is inspired by "Holy Smoke Batman" is her saying!! It is adorable!
{Opehlia and so are you}

Every other weekend, you find me at workshops that she leads at Jerry's Art-a-Rama. I am inspired and have started an art journal. I won't show it to you because it is sooo lousy. I know this for sure, I am not giving up quilting for journaling.


Oh one more thing, I just found a whole blog dedicated to Batman quotes!
Holy Smoke. Seriously. {here}
