Just in time for Memorial Day, the quilt without a name. You could hang it this way.....
....or this way.
It's not very large but it makes a big statement. It measures 55" x 36". Just a nice size for a patriotic quilt.
All of my quilts get their picture taken by posing on the old toboggan. This one is ready to go on a picnic.
This is the first time I started a quilt without the end design in mind. I started making red, white and blue components from my Patchwork Math book. The components were going to be my "step-outs" for The Quilt Show.com, until I saw a pattern develop in my mind, and started sewing the components together. I guess now I have to make more step-outs for the show!
So here's the rules for the "Naming of the Quilt Contest." Send me a name for this quilt by Thursday, May 22th. The cut-off time will be noon, Pacific Standard Time. The winner will be announced Saturday, May 24th. Mr. Joe and I will select our favorites, and our dog Zinnie, will be make her final selection. The decision of the judge is final. Remember Zinnie can be bribed with Kibble, doggie toys, walks in the woods, you name it, all bribes gladly accepted with a wag of the tail. The winner will receive a copy of Patchwork Math, or if you already have a copy of the book, you may select any one of my Sew'n Wild Oaks patterns. If you would like to send me your entry in an email, please send it to: firstname.lastname@example.org and your submission will be entered in the contest. Also this contest is not limited to only the United States. Submissions will be accepted from anywhere in the world. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, make sure I have a way to reach you and include your email address in your comment if you are a "no-reply" status.
Zinnie does tricks too! Good luck in the contest.
