spinning stars

(((Lost this post when I tried to make a correction!)))
I made this little (about 20" by 28") quilt back in 1996. The pattern was in Quiltmaker. They used brights. These fabrics were from a challenge at my guild.

Fine Art of Fiber

My guild has a cooperative show with the weavers and knitters guilds, the Fine Art of Fiber. I displayed a beautiful quilt that was given to me this spring from the board in appreciation for being president. It is all different tulip blocks, made with many techniques. I love it.

The Ricky Timms pretty purple quilt was made by my friend Eleonore Hauser, and the wonderful geometric one is by my friend Leslie Riley.

The tiny lantern log cabin is a great quilt by my friend Donna Cook.
Eleonore, Leslie, Donna, and I are members of a small group of 13 that meets to encourage eachother in our work. I look forward to this every month.

another one of Bonnie's wonky houses

I just finished another quilt top using Bonnie's wonky houses. This one will be a fund raiser for my church--they participate in Appalachia Service Project each year. I think about 50 will go this year, including my husband and our two oldest children.
It is interesting to see the kids reaction to rural poverty, very different from the urban poverty they see here in Chicago.
