A Special Project

As some of you may know, I'm a member of the Ithaca Modern Quilt Guild. We are working on a very special quilt for the Cancer Resource Center of the Finger Lakes to be raffled off at a benefit show at the Hangar Theater on April 19th. Yikes, that's less than two weeks away. Guild members each made a quilted block that will be joined by a QAYG method. Oh yeah, and they asked me to join the blocks together. How can I say no to this fabulous group, for such a good cause?

Some blocks still need to be trimmed and I'm waiting to add one more block. So this may not be the final layout. I should have the last block tomorrow and I'll determine the final layout and start joining the blocks.

Some of the stories behind these blocks are amazing, I really need to make sure we document them.

I'm linking up today to Anything Goes Monday at Karen's Quilts, Crows and Cardinals

Color Me Quilty


  1. What a good idea! Putting all the blocks together is a beautiful challenge... Do you know yet what color or what kind of fabric you will use?

  2. You are a trooper for volunteering! Karma is a good thing! :) May your joining go smoothly and super fast!

  3. Wow, that's a big job, no, pulling all those gorgeous blocks into a quilt ?~! I suspect that for someone who is capable of the astonishingly beautiful work you do that this is a cake walk. I love your style. I have begun following you with Bloglovin.
