04 Nov Another quilt for quilters
A while ago, I wrote that my Seven Sisters group was making a quilt for volunteers at the guild we belong to. I mentioned that I had done the same thing with the hand dying group I belong to (Colorful Scrunchers), but didn’t have picture. One of the Scrunchers, Kathy, promptly sent me this photo.
I’m so glad to have the photo. Thanks, Kathy! This was such a fun quilt to work on. Ginia designed the basic idea – which is nine patches all made from hand dyed fabric. The small black squares are the centers of the nine patches. We had a great time blending the colorful parts into the final result.
I was new to the group at the time, so none of the fabric was dyed by me, but the rest of the group all contributed some of their fabrics. I’m not sure what year this was, probably about 2006.
This is such a wonderful and creative group of women. We aren’t able to get together very often, but when we do the eye candy is spectacular!

How great to see that quilt again. I think the year was earlier, though. I'm guessing it was 2003 or 2004, since I moved away in the fall of 2004.

The rainbow effect on the black background is very dramatic. We admire hand dyed fabric… the simple 9 patch allows the fabric to shine.

What a lovely colourful quilt – it's amazing how effective the 9 patch block is in this format
