So things were a little crazy this week and I didn’t get a chance to make a video. I’ll catch up with that next week. I just received these photos from the long armer working on my “Modern Dresden” quilt top and I can’t tell you how EXCITED I am!!!!! I could never have done this top justice the way she is! Shout out to my local longarmer Tessa Atwood with Hummingbird Hill Quilting in Wilmington, VT.
The theme for our guild challenge quilt this year was Monopoly. We chose a brown paper bag that had a property card and coordinating fabric for the card. We had specific sizes that we had to use so that all the quilts will be the same size. Since I picked Pacific, which is not a state, I got to choose a state that touches the Pacific, so I chose Alaska. We lived near Fairbanks at Ft. Wainwright. I chose things that represented what I loved about our time there, from the moose at my front door to the pink wildflowers we saw up near the North Pole, to the Aurora Borealis.
Not sure if this went up yesterday, but I’ve been having a heck of a time with this video!
