This past weekend, Quilted Memories -- the shop I'm newly affiliated with -- held a Christmas in July event. There were lots of specials and treats, and the shop was decorated with holiday quilts done by customers. Even though the temperatures were well into the 100s outside, all the Christmas eye candy put me in the mood to get going on those holiday projects. There are only five months!
Shoppers got to vote on their favorite quilts, and this lovely by Rita Hale won the Viewer's Choice award.
Rita is also a member of my machine quilters guild. I told her I would
be glad to give it a good home, but she wasn't having any of it! I have
seen quilts like this done in red and also chocolate brown, but the navy was
really pretty. Nice job Rita!
I guess if Rita won't share, I'll just have to make my own! Pardon me while I go find the end of my future projects list...
