Heritage Remake

Hello Everyone,
 
I have a fun day planned with my Independence Hall Quilters today.  We will be working on a remake of my Heritage pattern for the guild's 2019 Scholarship Quilt.  The guild gives out scholarships every year to deserving high school seniors.  Our goal is to raise as much money as possible to support the youth in our community.
 
Here is my original Heritage.

 
The new Heritage is going to be scrappy.  Each and every star is going to be different.  The log cabins will be the glue that ties the quilt together.
 

 
I spent a very snowy day in my dining room selecting fabrics, cutting fabrics, then lightly gluing the fabrics on my block layout sheet.  When I get to class today, I will let the girls select the block they want to make.
 

 
 Here are a few of the layouts.



I'll take pictures today of the quilts progress on the design wall.


Twenty guild members have signed up to help me with this endeavor.


 
Doesn't this look like a tile floor?  During the storm yesterday, I also cut all of the fabric for the log cabin blocks.  I have all the hundreds of pieces in marked baggies. 

 
After dinner last night, we enjoyed our evening walk around Snowflake Lake. 
 


Two geese glided over to see us.

 
 It was so peaceful and quiet at the lake.  The only sound was the geese talking to us.


We emerged from the woods to the lights of our cabin, sweet cabin welcoming us in out of the cold.

 
It's 25 degrees here now at 5:30am.  I hope it warms up a bit to thaw the snow on the roads.  It could be a bit dicey getting to Independence Hall to work on the quilt.  I do not enjoy ice skating with the car!
 
Soon,
Lynn
 
P.S.  If you are interested in making a Heritage quilt, the pattern is available HERE in my Etsy shop.
