There was a BIG finish at our last retreat:
Here is Jerri’s quilt of 3392 pieces, made from a pattern in one of Bonnie Hunter’s books. Jerri made this for a Little Sisters of the Poor fundraiser, and it certainly should raise a lot of funds! It is beautiful. And she had the sense not to count the number of pieces until she was FINISHED with the project! Even so, it took almost a year to complete. I am VERY impressed that there is not even ONE block is turned wrong!.
And here is the latest stack of donation quilts from our group.
So far everyone is keeping up with the commitment to make a donation quilt each month, and one over-achiever is several months ahead of the rest of us!!! As you probably can see in the photo, another over-achiever quilts hers by hand! I am always amazed by my very accomplished friends!
Our latest block swab is monochromatic slabs. Each of us chose a color we wanted, and as soon as we swapped one group member turned her blocks into a donation quilt. Talk about quick work!
When I got the slabs, I immediately started cutting them up and adding accent strips of blue. So far I really like the result. More on this later.
So, what’s new with you?
The Retreat work was great! Congratulation to Jerri! She did a phenomenal job and no mistakes! I enjoyed the slabs with the accent strips!
3392! That is one impressive feat!!
The accept strips are phenomenal. Great idea!
Thanks for reading, Rachael. I enjoy reading about your quilts and adventures in Japan. ☺️
Love what the touch of blue does for the orange-yellow blocks! And I am duly impressed by the 3000+ pieces quilt. Hope it raises a heap of funds.
Hi, Claire! Thanks for visiting. I really like the quilt of a jillion pieces, too; I’m just glad somebody ELSE made it 😉
