A Finish and a Start

I have a fabulous finish to show you today – – the 2019 raffle quilt of the Tarheel Quilters Guild. I designed this quilt last fall, shopped for the blue batik fabric at Pineapple Fabrics warehouse sale, cut kits for members, and arranged demos of Wonky Star blocks at a guild meeting. My friend Karlene helped me square up the blocks, and Colleen helped me arrange them on the design wall. Irene and Pat paper pieced the outer border and Kelsey of Grice Farm Quilts employed her amazing machine quilting talents. “Sparkling Pinpoints” was truly a group project, and we are all proud of our queen size quilt!

Let me know how many raffle quilt tickets you’d like to purchase. The drawing will be at the guild’s annual Christmas party in December.

And since I finished two projects recently, I authorized myself to begin a new quilt. Here’s a picture of the fabrics, but I can’t divulge the quilt design. You will just have to wait for the Christmas holiday issue of Quiltmaker magazine! The fabrics are from Benartex:  Jubilee and Jubilee Holiday by Amanda Murphy.
