January 31st

This was a quilt that was made possible with the help of lots of friends. When I was a member of a large guild in Bellingham, I offered this block up as a friendship block and got about 16 blocks back from that. Then my small group made 10 more and I made up the rest. The block is called Lady of the Lake, I think, but I of course called it Lady of the Garden. I carried the blocks around to several retreats but never really had the right fabric for stoppers and borders and then one day, I put them on the design wall "on point" and pulled out the bold colors you see. Then found the border fabric while shopping amongst my bins of larger floral prints. I love how these things come together. The back has a floral flannel which finished it very nicely.

So I made it through a whole month!! Woo Hoo! And fear not few dear followers, I have plenty more to show!! Thanks for helping me make a visual catalog of my works. And helping me to work this poor camera to death.....
