White Oak, March 2011
Pat didn't make this Autumnal Splendor quilt this weekend, but for some reason she had it along and I thought we should have a picture of it. Pat spent a lot of the weekend working with miniscule CW HSTs and prolly will be calling the Guide Dog Foundation tomorrow.
Judy's is in soft pastels and will be a baby quilt. She didn't get as far as Bobbi did because she had other things she was trying to get done.
The Executive Committee had learned that Pat has a birthday this week and surprised her with a cake and a rendition of Happy Birthday To You, each in her own key, of course.
This picture was taken before the final wider white border was applied.
dreamed about a second idea, and finally made a third.
This is Emily Cier's Irish Chain, which I've been wanting to make ever since I spied it. The blocks were supposed to finish at 8"; mine were a bit wonky and scraggly and I trimmed them to 7-1/2". So the quilt is a little smaller than Emily's design. Not to worry, when I ordered the fabric I planned a border and ordered enough for that. Planning to get it on early this week.
We had a wonderful time. Probably one of the best ever.
