Several weeks ago while talking to a friend here, I learned that they have a foundation to help underprivileged children. I’m not sure of all the details but they told me some of the help they provide and they have an auction in the spring. They’ve done some very nice things for us recently so I told them I would make a quilt for the upcoming auction. Then I remembered most of my fabric has been
neatly repacked crammed into boxes, taped shut and is waiting to be delivered to the new sewing room. Before you ask how it’s going . . it’s the painters . . still holding us up! I’m so frustrated with them. They’re supposed to be here this afternoon and Vince is here and he’s ready for a heart to heart discussion with them.
Yesterday I asked the friend whether the quilt should be something with a Texas sports theme, or hunting related or pretty. The wife said “pretty”! This morning I woke up thinking about a quilt I could make for my friends’ foundation. To get started I did a bit of research for the color trends for 2012. I found lots of “heritage” type colors . . muted tans, browns, greens, grays . . some rusts. Seems as though my stash isn’t going to pass the 2012 color trends test! 🙂
I did come up with this plan:
Not sure if it will get made for the auction or if I’ll give them something that’s already made but this one reminds me of Texas — looking at aerial shots of the land; seeing all the different plots of land, and the border reminds me of the meandering creeks. I like the design and it was a good way to waste the morning . . I love Electric Quilt!
