WIP Wednesday 5/16/2012

Fundraiser quilt to benefit daughter-in-law Laurie's Mothers of Preschoolers group at church.
Center of quilt is one large piece of fishing/outdoors themed fabric from stash.
Original design, 58" x 74"
Completed 5/15/2012

Hoping quilt will appeal as Father's Day gift and bring the group a nice chunk of change.

Bottom half gives a peek at the back

Needed to figure out where to place tied knots. Found the pattern repeat on leftover fabric, marked knot placement with flower head pins (big yellow spots). Pinned "map" to design wall for reference while I tied.

I made Fishing in a hurry, in under a week. I have had the theme fabric in my stash for years. I really like how the quilt turned out.

Cadenza quilt top

I didn't make much progress on Cadenza this week. I sewed the backing, then put the quilt on hold to work on Fishing, which I think was wise. Tonight I'll proceed with the pillowcase finish, and get the quilt completed for Saturday's Sacramento Modern Quilt Guild meeting.
