    Last year it was Buggy Wheels this year it's Rose of Sharon

    Each year our quilt group (about 8 of us) build a quilt for our Senior Center to raffle off in March. Last year we did the Buggy Wheels which was a huge success. We each received thank you and embroidered book marks from the lady who won it. She was most happy! This year we went a step further and did hand appliqued Rose of Sharon with a few pieced blocks. Then we all took turns with the hand quilting. It turned out pretty darn special! Here's this years pic:

    We had a few pieced blocks leftover so we have included 3 pillows to accompany this quilt. Thanks for looking.

    You all did a beautiful job. Your quilt came out gorgeous. I love the blend of hand applique and pieced blocks.
