I finished up this quilting on this ''Lotta'' quilt that I had made in August using Lotta's great fabrics! ... I know I've been a bit slow lately at my finishes, But, I have to say I am finding I have more patience to slow down and enjoy the journey even more than I do already!
This was a quilt I made using Lotta Jansdotter's new fabrics for Windham, that are coming out at Market as we speak! I was lucky to be bale to play with them early. I only added the yellow, gold and white to highlight the prints. Love the prints. Big bold graphic prints...
This quilt was made modifying this block. The middle section is an octagon, which I then pieced the squares, and triangles to fit the full squares all the way around the Octagon, then squared off the corners. I played with the placement of the colors so that each block would look differently each time.A good way to practice your y seam piecing! And drafting skills!
Tonight is the BASICS/PROMESA GALA. They have merged their two org's and it is now called ACACIA NETWORK. You may recall last year is when we auctioned off MANY of the House Block quilts, and I gave a quilt to the governor of NY. pictures here!
I was happy to receive word that I am receiving a Community Service Award tonight,
which I'd like to say,
I am accepting on behalf of ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE DONATED A QUILT OR TWO OR 30!
I'm so thrilled with all your generosity in helping me achieve this goal to bring these families quilts. We are currently working on our next distribution event, for early December. Date is still being figured out, so stay tuned for more info on that, and PICTURES from tonight's event!
Now I need to figure out what to say tonight. gulp. Wish me luck!
