A few weeks before the mini-group mini-retreat I asked the ladies to make a minimum of six blocks from the Mary's Triangle pattern. We agreed to use 'calicos', small floral prints that had been aging in our stashes since the 80's and muslin. But the pattern is so quick, most of us showed up with 20 or 30 pieced blocks. Then we mixed and matched them to see how many different layouts we could create.
We had a blast! Each quilt came out so different and they're all made from one block. I call this one 'Streak of Lightening'.
This one, 'Whirling Arrows.'
This one was made by Kim who agreed to work with "Vintage" fabric only if she absolutely had to. She likes to create with Moda Marble and Hoffman Batiks, so this was a challenge of sorts. We all loved the 'cheddar' orange in this one. It makes the design just *pop*. Maybe we should call it "Please pass the Cheddar." :D
This is Judy's. A nice three color quilt.
At the next quilt guild meeting we showed them as a group. Then we donated them to the Community Quilt Chairman. They went to the County Child Protection Services to comfort some youngster during a difficult time in their life. We learned a lot and had a lot of fun doing it.
