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.
