A Celebration Rose Quilt for Auction

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!

  1. What a great block pattern! I don’t remember ever seeing anything quite like it. And you know I LOVE that fabric! That should be a great attraction at the auction!
