The Trinity Valley Quilter’s Guild upcoming quilt show in late September – Remember When… Quilted Memories of Days Gone by – will be celebrating the guild’s 30th Anniversary. One of the new features this year will be a live (not silent) quilt auction and I’ve been casting about looking for a brilliant idea for a small quilt.
I knew the fabric I wanted to use and I knew I wanted to paper piece the quilt. Then this morning I saw on the Carol Doak Quilting Group Yahoo Group site that she has a block celebrating the 8000th member of the group. Large enough for a single block to be a good focus for a small quilt, appropriate for the fabric I wanted to use and a celebration too (I like a theme :-)).
Here’s my small quilt – named A Celebration Rose:
I’ve used scraps leftover from my Ocean Waves quilt which won my first ribbon at the show last year. Seems appropriate. I do still need to quilt my little quilt, but wanted to share my fun! Now, if you really like it, be sure to come to our quilt show and make a bid!
