When I first discovered real quilting fabric, I fell in love with blue and yellow. I bought quite a bit and am slowly using it up. A guild friend gave me more just before I moved away. I love this pattern and made the top at a quilting retreat with my Phoenix Guild called Night Owls. I think this will be donated to a local Hospice of the Valley here.
I am a member of an online quilting community. We are from all over the country and have met many times is person. One members Mom recently passed and had used Hospice. I support this organization with quilts and decided to make one in her honor. I will donate it to a local group. Her favorite colors were mauve and green. My group sent enough fabric to make this one and probably another. A little of the Mom's stash was in this quilt.
I made another of this pattern using a Moda Layer Cake. I will hold onto this until a need arises when I will need a completed quilt in a hurry.
I took some time off from blogging for a bit. Life has settled into a new routine here in Phoenix for us. I have been sewing and quilting alot. I have discovered charity groups and many places to donate quilt locally. I went to my first retreat here in Phoenix with a new quilting community.
This quilt is done from the pattern Yellow Brick Road. I used up lots of my scraps form patriotic quilts to make this one. I really enjoyed making it and see more in my future.
Here are a couple of kids one I made recently also.
This is the view right down the street from us at sunset. We watch the sun come up out back.
I had alot of fun making this quilt. I know there are more in my future and and the process will be different. I will make sure I use a different fabric for each block of the quilt, quilt it before adding the bears and make the bears using a different type of applique. They were quite flat. I will use the Elenore Burns method and add a little batting to make them more dimensional
