Every quilt show, we have a small treasures silent auction. This year the auction will be quilts with 24” as the maximum side. So far we have about 27 of them and I finally decided I needed to get one done.
I appliqued this several years ago in a class with Gerry Kimmel-Carr. She came to the East Cobb Quilters’ Guild and taught a quilt that included this block. In fact, the quilt consisted of 4 of these blocks surrounded by pieced blocks to make a bed-sized quilt. It was made in country colors – lots of plaids and such. I knew I wasn’t interested in making it in these fabrics and I didn’t want a large quilt so I decided to just make one block. I used hand-dyed fabrics and enjoyed the process. I then set it aside and forgot about it. Recently I remembered it and got it quilted yesterday. Now all that is left is the binding, sleeve and label and I can take it to guild next week to be included in the auction.
I am glad I am getting it finished!
