I finish the quilting on the Rose Quilt this past week. My guild asks members in their birthday month to donate a finished quilt to their Warm Wrappings Charity Group. So it will be presented to them on September 14th.
I spent some time this past week going through my quilt books. Over the years I have purchased many and find that often I have used pattern out of them many times and they have now sat on a shelf for ages. So I looked through every one, there were lots of them, and I clean out about half. They will go to the free table at our next guild meeting and some may also be stored away for a boutique at our next quilt shop and sold for very low prices. But, when thumbing through they I ran across this particular book.
And this pattern.
It immediately call my attention to a stack of fabrics that have been in my stash for years. So, time to pull them out and do something with them.
Plus I had a stack of solids the were hand dyed that blended with them beautifully.
Time to put these to work.
I have a start. I still am not sure if it will be as big as the pattern. I have in mind a table runner or a wall hanging. Just something interesting to do while I continue working on the Flower Garden appliqué project. Plus the book has some other very interesting patterns to think about too.

The fabrics you have for that runner are gorgeous! I'd make a long table runner or bed runner with them so I could see them often. Meanwhile, your Rose quilt is gorgeous! Someone will be so happy to receive it.ReplyDelete
