With a quilt group/guild sew-in and meeting following is definitely a great week!!! This group had decided it was time to do a raffle quilt and last month (as you remember, I was in the warmer climes of Texas!!!!) a pattern was chosen with a small number of gals “running” with the idea!!!! Our Monday sew-in was a time of putting together some of the makings for, what is going to be, a very stunning, appealing finish. It’s a ‘string’ quilt in the “Spider Web” setting. Black will be the star/background fabric and the ‘strings’ are Fall/Autumn colors. A ‘kite’ shaped piece is afixed to a paper piece that’s triangular shaped, then a variety of fabric “strings”/narrow strips are stitched on to the paper either side of the black piece. The resulting piece is then trimmed and put together, in settings of 4, to form the block. A few photos for clarification……… The paper triangles w/the black ‘kite’. Add some very willing workers and LOTS of ‘strings……….
And you end up with a stack of string pieces ready to be put into blocks………. A very productive morning. I’m sure I’ll be posting on this project as it goes along. The raffle drawing will be next October/November but there’s lots to do between times!
