This was a big step for the guild. When the guild was formed several years ago the charter members did not want to be beholden to making charity quilts. Our local hospital auxillary holds a quilt auction every fall and many of the ladies work on their individual church or other volunteer organization's quilts. These are generally wonderful works of hand quilted art and a certain prestige goes with the highest auctioned quilt. It takes alot of planning to put together a quilt for the auction.
What was special about this quilt is the scrappy look of everyone's fabrics, the simple pattern and finishing, and most of all the comraderie of the day. It will be on display at our local county fair in late June and then be sent to the RMcD House.
Any ideas on what pattern we can sew for next year?
