President’s Quilt for Danielle

One of the highlights of yesterday’s meeting was the presentation of the President’s Quilt to Danielle.  We started making the quilt last summer.

After putting the quilt together it was given to me to quilt.  I finished it a few weeks ago and gave it to Pat to bind.  We were going to use the dark brown from the backing for the binding but she realized it was too dark and changed it for a lighter color.  Here is Pat presenting it to Danielle.

We asked each member of the guild to make one or two blocks.  I am not sure if you can see the signatures, but most blocks are signed.  I quilted it with a medium brown thread.  I think Danielle likes it – I hope so.



  1. I love it, what a wonderful gift.

  2. I do love it, I'm still a little speechless about it. I spent most of my free time this weekend going over it patch by patch to read the signatures and take in all the different fabrics that were used.

    It is too beautiful for words, and your quilting only makes it more dear to me.


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
