There was a time when I participated in things at my local quilt shop. One of my favorite things was the five dollar quilts. You went in and bought the cut fabric for a quilt block and on a certain day of the month, when you took it back, you got the fabric for the next block for free.
I haven’t done one of those in a long time. The last one I tried was hideous and I dropped out. But, I have a few very cute quilts made over a series of years. This is one that’s been hanging in Syd’s room for a while. We took it down and laundered it and blocked it and now, it’s rolled up and stored and she’s getting something else…a quilt or a framed print, to hang in it’s place.
This one is a cute one. It’s all batiks and I finished it completely in that theme. I’m pretty sure it’s one of the later ones I did because I recognize fabrics from my stash that did not come from the LQS that sponsored the quilts. In the beginning, I used to buy all the finishing supplies from the quilt shop out of loyalty, but as things changed, I lost that sense of loyalty.
Unfortunately, I can’t remember when this quilt was made. Maybe I’ll be able to figure it out after I get all my photos moved.
Everybody have a great Friday. It’s going to be a weekend quilting marathon with a small amount of gardening thrown in for good measure.
I need to catch up and I need the stress relief.
Be well. Lane
