What letter is this?
In less than a month, my quilt guild will be holding their biannual Quilt Show.
One of the fun events is our quilt challenge. For this show, the theme is "Pick A Letter, Any Letter."
The inspiration came from a quilt exhibit I had seen in Seattle in 2004 where quilters from the US, France, and Japan chose letters from the alphabet and creatively expressed those letters in quilts. I thought it was a wonderful challenge concept and was pleased that it was chosen for our 2012 show.
As a guild member, I'm also entering a regular quilt. Trying to fit quilting in with work and baking is a challenge in itself, and I managed to do just one. The fabrics have the feel of Provence. I quilted each little panel differently and embellished one section with gold beads. The tassels were added in honor of the recipient.
A recipient, I might add, who didn't want the quilt.
Guess that happens sometimes.
So, now it's mine to do with as I please.
Thanks to my dear neighbor (who receives many a baked goodie from me) for being my quilt holder.
Stay tuned. The next post will return to food, namely Italian Sage Bread.
