MD Anderson Quilt Auction 2015

Photographing 24 quilts that came in for the MD Anderson Quilt Auction 2015.  So excited that finished quilts are already coming in! This year we are hoping to get a quilt form every US state. Have you started your quilt yet?  This auction would not be so successful if it were not for all the generous quilters that donate their talent and resources of completed quilts.  Click here for more info about Ovarian Cancer and the quilt auction!

Until the next post Happy Quilting!

New Church Banner

We have been working on a new banner for our church. The design is the church's mission statement and we reproduced it as close as possible as the design was made many years ago.  It measures 46" x 48". The triangle is pieced while the tree and words are all machine appliqued. We put an 1/2" inner black border on the inside and outside of the triangle. I think it really makes it stand out better. The background fabric color matches (pretty close) to the brick wall it will be hanging on. The fabrics we used were Moda Marbles and RJR Handspray.  We just shipped it off to Jamie for quilting and can't wait to see how she quilts it. We are leaving it up to her and hopefully she won't mind that we need to hang it by 6/22/2014.  Nothing like working on a close deadline! When we get it back I will post a photo showing Jamie's quilting.

Until the next post Happy Quilting!
