Every year Piecemakers quilt group makes a quilt to be raffled for Relay for Life under the leadership of Colleen. This year we each made two 12 inch “Sister’s Choice” blocks and Colleen put them together with sashing between the blocks and around the outside edge. She brought the completed quilt top to me Sunday afternoon to be quilted. I loaded it on my quilt frame on Monday and quilted it today. Colleen will add the binding and hand stitch it to the back of the quilt.
The quilt group will have a booth at the Buckeye Heritage Festival in Hicksville on May 20, 21, and 22 to display the quilt and sell tickets. We will also do demonstrations in the booth such as hand stitching binding on a quilt.
This is a picture of the Relay quilt with all the extra backing and batting still attached to the sides.
I will post another picture when the quilt is finished.
Every year my small quilt group, Piecemakers, makes a quilt to be given to the first baby born in the new year at Community Memorial Hospital. This year we each made disappearing four patch blocks using bright fabrics. Carol put them together using black polka dot sashing fabric and I quilted it with bright variegated thread. Colleen is adding the binding, using the same black polka dot fabric.
