    Started my own Long Arm Business and Wanted to show off The Guild's Fall Raffle Quilt

    This Quilt was created by our BOM program. The program coordinator chose The God's Eye from Quilters Cache and we each made two blocks with the only restriction that we use the supplied Kona Black and use two batiks of our own choice. There were a total of 48 blocks completed. They are then split into two piles and one is raffled to a lucky participant and then the second set of blocks I took to complete the top.

    I added one plain border then added a set of flying geese then another plain border. I pieced the back and the guild supplied the batting. Onto "Lilly" she went. I chose King Tut - Obsidian for the quilting thread and a beautiful panto called Jadeby Golden Threads. After completing the panto I chose the Faux Piped Binding Technique (I think I saw on this board). I will never bind by hand unless I'm hand quilting the quilt.

    Any way, here goes, I hope the pic comes through.

    Great quilt! I like the shape that's created with the negative space (the black stars)
