Next summer project…..

Every two years, our guild makes a quilt which is raffled to raise money for our charity projects and our educational projects.   This year we have decided to make a scrap quilt and asked guild members to provide Four-Patches and Half-Square Triangle blocks to be used.

I…..in a moment of craziness…..offered to do the piecing for the top.

SO, I now have hundreds of patches, all ready to be put into a quilt…..

We always ask for the pieces to be made a bit too big so the first task is to trim each of the patches down to 4.5 inches.

That task done, I started thinking about different ways that we could set the blocks together and came up with three ideas.

The first was a quilt from one of Bonnie Hunter’s books.  The idea here will be to use the blocks to create an unusual, possibly asymmetrical pattern…..

The second is a Jewel Box design…..DSC02433

And I don’t know the name of this third one, but the idea came out of one of Bonnie Hunter’s books as well…….DSC02432

Personally, I like this third version better, but will take all of these ideas to the Charity Bee tomorrow and let them make the final decision.

Then it will be on to the piecing.…..my favorite part!!!!

My favourite is the third one as well. Are you just doing the piecing or the quilting as well?
