Rah Rah Quilt Progres

"The Spirit of West"... is coming along great. I just need to add a small 1 inch outer border which will be a black with gold specs, then quilt it. The 25 years of team photos are surrounded by 12 different black tone on tones, then bordered by yellow piping. The piping was nice touch to add yellow to the quilt. The school colors are black and gold.

My quilt "Stellation" was accepted in the Quilter's Heritage Celebration, in Lancaster, PA in April. It will be competing in the Wall Quilt catagory.

Take A Stitch Tuesday Challenge

While browsing through the members of the Artful Quilters Web Ring this morning I came across the Take A Stitch Tuesday Challenge on In a Minute Ago. How wonderful is this! It started in January, I have a little catching up to do but this will be fun! I love needlework.

Rah Rah Quilt

This year is the cheerleading coaches 25th season as coach. I've been working on this Memory Quilt as a gift for her from the team, (I think it's safe to post this, she doesn't read my blog) it is about 50 inches square. The outer border is all 4 x 6 photos mostly from 1999-2007. The center photos are team group pictures. Danielle and I went to the school library one day after school and photographed the group shots from old yearbooks. We are missing 1993, so if anyone out there graduated from CB West High School in 93, and have a yearbook, can I borrow it? The team shots will be sewn together with various black and yellow or gold (school colors) fabrics. Maybe in squares I'm not quite sure yet. Feel free to offer suggestions.
