You probably can't tell that I used a homespun for the binding, cut on the diagonal!
This quilt has a great story!! It was called the Convent Quilt A couple of years ago, at the Chicago quilt show, this quilt was on display and sold in a kit. A couple of my (smarter!!) friends bought the kit but I resisted. When #1 smarter friend, Peggy Dilley, put hers together, I really wanted one.
The lawyer in me tried to persuade #2 smart friend (Bonnie McQueen) to sell me her kit but to no avail. Enter the next group of smarties (#3,4,5) who put together our own kits using our stashes!! I contributed a bit but they did it in Wisconsin so I was at a disadvantage except that I got my own kit!! I sent them my contributions to add to the variety.
Debbie Dodge (#3 smart one), Pat Riley (#4 smartie) and DarLynn Venne (#5 smarter) all got similar kits using their fabrics!! I'm not sure if any of them finished theirs yet but the really special part is that one of them will sleep under it this next week when they are at the cabin here in Oregon for some serious retreat time and the Sisters Quilt Show.
And they're going to sign my label too. sadly, DarLynn isn't able to come this year but now has a very compelling reason to come next summer!!
I also made my Circa 2016 blocks and got into fussy cutting!
Hope you have a great 4th.
