Every year the Maple Leaf Quilt guild makes and donates a quilt to the Michiana Mennonite Relief Sale quilt auction. At the September guild meeting this year’s finished donation was displayed. Here she is, Stars and Sprigs, designed by Kim McLean.
This quilt pattern has both pieced and appliqued blocks, so the piecing people were happy and the appliquers were happy. This quilt was very much a group project. I appliqued four of the applique blocks and also helped with the some of the quilting.
I’m hoping there are 2 people at the auction who really want this quilt. Update 9-27-15 – She sold for $2600. The photo was taken by Marie Troyer.
Also at the guild meeting, the committee in charge of the 2017 donation quilt presented information about the new relief sale quilt. The pattern is Sweet Surrender designed by Sue Cody.
Several of us in the guild are also going to be piecing and appliquing this pattern to make our own quilt, so the guild blocks will be good preparation.
I finally got all the siggie blocks signed so now I can start on the guild blocks. I’m appliquing triangles 3, 4, 15 and 16. This is going to be a scrappy quilt and we are NOT to use white for a back ground.
Triangle 16 is completed. I tried to use brighter colors than I normally use. They worked well on this yellow batik. The little circles are dark red not black. The pink flower is EPP’d using 5/8th” papers. I thought it turned out cute, especially with the fussy cut butterfly center. These triangles are going to be a fun project.
