Happy Tuesday -
Today I made a block for Amy, Mrs. Schmenkmans Quilts, who recently lost her husband. Sarah Fielke is organizing the blocks and hopes to make a quilt for Amy and her daughter, Anabel.
Here is the block that I made. She is asking for Kaffee fabrics and the design is to resemble a base line on a stereo. Amy's husband, Dan, was had a passion for music.
You can email Sarah for the full instructions, or you can leave a comment here and I'll forward Sarah's email to you.
I don't know Amy personally, but I do know that quilts can offer comfort when it is need it most.
Last week when I visited Boston, MP and I scooted up to Lowell to see the New England Quilt Museum. What a treat!
The exhibit of Maine's Heritage Project was Wonderful!! sorry but no photos allowed. I sketched a couple of things and I may be doing a new english paper pieced project inspired by a quilt we saw, right MP?
The have a wonderful library and they were having a little sale. So I picked up this sales brochure of the Jinny Beyer commemorative Discovery line from 1992. I was able to purchase 1 few pieces of it a couple of years ago so it's nice to have this.
I didn't realize the backing fo my Moby Dick quilt is part of that line. My friend, Diane, gave me that backing, and it was perfect for Moby.
I also picked up this interesting 2 piece set.
It's a book and pattern set form Women's Day. It encompasses all different needle art forms and it's really interesting to study for inspiration.
Have a fun week!
