Yes!! I am finally finished with the guild opportunity quilt for the Foothill Quilters in Auburn, CA. This is being revealed to the guild next week, so I finished it on time! Here are some pictures:
Here is the “before” picture as it was laying on my dining room where I was auditioning thread:
Unfortunately, there were some technical issues with the black fabric which caused puckering and some excess stretch:
And here are the “after” pictures:
and more pictures of the back:
The guild’s request was to quilt a 2 sided quilt- which is very rare and challenging to do. I am very happy with my end result, and feel I more than met my goals with the challenges presented.
It is going to be judged next week, so I will keep you posted. My main contact for this project is the talented Carol Vierra, who along with her friend, Laura Rucker, pieced the quilt. They worked very hard on this project, I know.
Off to babysit Jack tonight, who talked to me on the phone today and is so blasted cute!! This weekend is busy… friends over for BBQ and I think some R&R is due after working hard on the quilt. Take care, Carla
