    Our guild project for 2008 was to have individuals make lattice type quilts from charm swaps, collections, etc. The choice of fabrics and colors provided an array of different results.

    Someone from this board has posted their guild BOM challenge of black and white prints with teal (turquoise) as the accent color. The teal really makes the black and whites pop with energy ;-) Thank you to whom ever
    graciously shared the posting earlier this year!!!

    Marcia from Material Girls did the longarm quilting. The pattern is available for sale from quiltingday if you care to PM her.

    This 62-inch square quilt was made from my collection of black and whites. I had a harder time finding the right teal shades and ended up using a turquoise cotton from Joann's for the sashing.

    Elaine is a dear SIL and I enjoyed making this for her ;-)

    Piecefully yours,
    Kay Susan

    Thank you for all of the kind comments. Yes, it is fun to make something that will be enjoyed. Elaine has done a great deal of sewing in her lifetime -- including quilts. She has been my SIL for almost eight years and had she not become ill, I would have skipped making a quilt for her.
    On the other hand, she appreciates the work involved.

    Actually, it really isn't work when you love to quilt ;-) When I told her that the border, backing, and binding were made of fabric designed by the singer Marie Osmund, she wanted to know where I had purchased the fabric. Now, that's a quilter :) :) :)

    Piecefully yours,
    Kay Susan

    That is really stunning. And you did a wonderful job co- ordinating the colors. Really a knock-out quilt!
