It was also garage sale day at the guild meeting where members could set up tables and sell things they no longer want. I tried to resist but ended up with a tote bag that my friend Jan makes and a lime green wristwatch. It was fun.
It was also the last day for entries to be submitted for the quilt show. I decided to enter 3 very different quilts. Fortunately, they do not require that they are quilted before entry - of course they need to be quilted before being shown.
First is my color rainbow. It is huge! When I quilted Mary's it turned out to be 90 x 114. I made the center of the quilt in February at Retreat but kept putting off getting the borders on. There are 5 separate borders. First one is the black background to float the center, then one of the light fabrics, one medium and one of the darkest. It is then finished by another border of black. Got it done just in time to take the photo to put in with the entry form.
Last is a wholecloth quilt. The fabric was dyed by a friend Susan Rice who is a member of my Allatoona Quilt Guild. This one is about 44 inches square and is beautiful, even before quilting. I also have a large queen sized piece that I want to quilt but will do that some other time.
We will find out in August of the quilts are accepted as it is a juried and judged show but hopefully these will make it in.
