At guild today, we had our donation quilt for the Southeastern Textile and Quilt Museum on display. Here it is.
Isn’t it beautiful? Lisa picked out wonderful batiks and cut block kits for some of us to make the blocks. She then put it together and Cindy quilted it.
Here is a close up of one of the blocks.
Many of the guilds in Georgia are making quilts to support the new/future museum. They will all be on display at the State Capitol building on January 31. There are almost 50 quilts that will be displayed. At the end of the day, the quilts will go to the Museum committee. They will be the first exhibition at the new museum when it opens. After that, they will be auctioned off with the proceeds going to the museum.
I made blocks for this quilt, for the East Cobb quilt and for the Modern Quilt Guild’s quilt. I am quilting the one for the Modern Quilt Guild this week so it can be bound in time for the end of the month.
I can’t wait to see all the quilts hanging in the Capitol.
