Nine of us carpool to PMQG monthly and it’s a minimum of 1.5 hours together in a car or two. We decided to make a charity quilt for Quiltcon West in Pasadena this February. It will be shown there, then we get it back to donate to a charity we choose.
Each of us made nine (more or less) wonky stars and today five of us gathered to begin putting it together. There was progress, but still a lot of work remains.
After sewing and taking a step back, this is the layout we think will work.
Deb and I swung by the Pendleton store in Milwaukie in hopes of great deals on scrap fabric. All I found was the stripe on the side for 40 cents. Deb spotted some quarter yard cuts for $15 and after texting my daughter, we chose the following two. It was a better scenerio than the $85/yard. We’ll be making a few zipper pouches for Christmas gifts when I’m back east in December.
I’m working on this “Deer in the Headlights” quilt by Boo Davis’ book, “Dare to be Square” for our family gift Exchange early December.
