Lancaster Always Gets Me
After I got it all together and laid it out, it is a lot of fabric! Who can resist Hoffman batiks at $6 a yard? Obviously, not me! :-) For just a little excuse, I've already started designing (roughly) my guild challenge which is not due until March. The theme is "Diamonds are a girls best friend" and the quilt must have a black background and at least 10 diamonds showing on the quilt. Just a little peek at the design....my dog, Misty, will be in it. Hence, I bought a lot of reddish browns in Lancaster. Here's Misty in her favorite pose:
My quilting guild, Friendship Star Quilters, in Gaithersburg, MD kicked off a new quilting year on August 3rd. I brought the following charity quilts to that meeting:
On the left side are a bunch of preemies, and two linus quilts. The sunny yellow quilt and one more like it were donated to the guild by Kathy F. The three quilt tops on the right were made with fabric donated by Liz B.
