One evening in 1990 I was at the library as it closed. I quickly checked out my selected books and headed for the door. As they locked the door behind me, I noticed a meeting of some sort in a room outside the library-proper, but still in the building. I looked in - and they were showing quilts to one another!! I had happened upon "Quilt Chat" and they invited me in. This group met monthly and was a very loosely organized group of ladies. Each summer, however, we would do some sort of exchange or round-robin event.
These homespun 4-patches were part of an exchange we had sometime in the 1990's.
I am pleased with the result! I was afraid that it would be very "Country" as that was the style in Texas in the 90's. As I put it together, however, I really liked the bold colors and the disparate plaids.
It was a little hard to get a picture today - with the wind.
I plan to have this quilt top quilted by a dear friend who is in the process of purchasing a long-arm machine. I hope it will be a good top for her to start with.
And the holly trees attracting a swarm of butterflies last week.
