We had two goals for today, besides our usual catching-up chatter. The first was to start collecting blue and white twelve-inch blocks to assemble into a quilt. We are going to make a full or queen-sized sampler quilt for the Capital Quilters Guild annual Heritage Days auction in October. Several people brought completed blocks or whipped one up during the meeting. Marilyn found this pattern in a quilting magazine.
I was going through my UFOs and found this Bear Paw block left over from a quilt I made for my oldest son. I started it in 1988 and finished it in 1999! This may make it into the sampler quilt.
I bought the star and nine-patch blocks on e-Bay many years ago, and am so glad this is becoming a quilt. Love the refreshing colors!
Several other tops got completed or almost done, including all the tops that my friend Marcia gave us from her mother's stash. Anne Vernon, your quilting legacy is continuing!
Many thanks to Donna Sontag and Betsy Jobe from Quilts Like Crazy for hosting a fun and productive meeting!
