Art quilt for Karen

Today was a fun day finishing the FMQing on Karen's quilt. It's called Just Drillin" from a pattern by a member of our guild, Lynne Pillus of The Mechanical Quilt...

Lynne did a trunk show and a workshop for our guild last year. Karen did the workshop along with other members, including myself. Yea! for Karen for finishing her top. Mine, sadly is on my UFO list. My first attempt at an art quilt. Way out of my traditional quilting style but...
 it's good to quilt outside of the block!!! Right? once in awhile!?!

Karen did a beautiful job and I had fun quilting it. Hope Karen likes it !?! She will see it tomorrow at our guild meeting.

Tomorrow will be a busy day... Block of the Month at Cathy's at 10 am, Session # 3 ~ Adding Borders to the Woven Rail Fence quilt at Cathy's at 1 pm and Annie's Star Guild meeting at 7 pm with a trunk show by Thom Atkins. As well as Friday. Months ago (before I had way too much on my plate) I signed up for a Friday class with Thom Atkins, a guild workshop. It's a class on beading quilts. Click HERE for a link to see his class projects.

Here I go again... quilting outside of the block!!!

Grandmother's Choice

Yea! started Barbara Brackman's new Block of the Week. Finished block # 1 today. Grandmother's Choice is the first block for this quilt project. This is my version done in purple, cheddar, green and red...
Grandmother's Choice Block # 1

My fabric choices for this quilt
After some research we found this 1918 banner for The Netherlands suffrage movement. Holland won the vote for women in 1919. My fabric color choices were not too far off!
"Let me in, I bring new light"
Australia's banner had gold and green, the Brits did purple, green and cream and Alice Paul's along with many of the USA banners were purple and gold as this one by the National Women's Party. On  the flickr site you will see many versions of these and more colors for this quilt!
A BUTTONClink on Grandmother's Choice to go to Barbara Brackman's blog with more info... and here is a link to flickr and a photostream of pics of everyone's blocks participating in this project from all over the world. Never too late to join in!

 Other projects I am working on this weekend: A paper pieced block for Jill, our outgoing President of Annie's Star Quilt Guild...and our guild's paint chip challenge coming up in October...
 Can you guess which two colors are my paint chips? It's supposed to be obvious and we have to incorporate at least one nine patch block. Finished size is 24" x 24"

Happy Quilting and have a safe Labor Day
