My friend Barbara brought this fun quilt to the shop for us to see. It was made by the Adobe Art Center Quilter's from Hayward, CA. The pattern is from an Amy Bradley Design called Quilter's Yearbook.
Each of the group's members fashioned a likeness of themselves to present to Colleen, the leader of the group as a thank you gift....and it was a surprise! This is Colleen.
There was so much creativity and thought that went into each and every block. This looks like a fun-loving group to me!
Not only does it look like they are having a good time, they also are very talented quilters.
Here is my friend Barbara who put all of the blocks together, selected the great backing, and did the binding.
I love the jewelry!
Sadly, Mere passed away before the quilt was presented to Colleen. The block Mere made of herself with pearl earrings and wire-rimmed glasses will always be a gentle reminder that Mere will always be a valued member of the quilting group.
