Disappearing 4 Patch

A new quilt has begun and is up on the design wall.

Four blocks done and so far so good. A collection of reds and whites are going to be used for a unified scrappy look. Originally, the lights were going to be low-volume red and whites; however, they were difficult to find.

After "auditioning" different ones, I decided that I preferred white for clear contrast and continuity. Think of Minnie's white spots on red. :-)

I had to use self-discipline on starting this quilt (or any other that are on my bucket list-LOL) until I completed my previous quilt (see previous post).

Dress for Success

This week I learned that 'Dress for Success' was accepted at the AQS Quilt Show in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I am pleased that I disciplined myself to finish it before starting another quilt and/or needlework project.

The quilt is made from a pre-printed panel designed by Holly Holderman. I hand embellished the dresses, added the scrap border, and machine quilted it. The red-striped binding was inspired by Red Pepper Quilts.

Quilt Show Photos

The 2017 Sauder Village Quilt Show was wonderful. Lots of eye candy wherever you turned. Of course, my favorite was, Teresa's (Fabric Therapy) quilt entitled "Contentment." Her blue ribbon and people's choice award were well deserved.

Lots of other lovely applique and pieced quilts.

Teresa from Fabric Therapy took a plethora of photos which are posted on her blog. My goal of completing Dress for Success (Holly Holderman design) was met (barely) and that it was nicely displayed.
I admit that I am ready to move onto making another quilt. Actually, I have four going around in my head. Lol!
