16 x 24


At long last I have finished something! My guild, Penn Oaks is having a quilt show next spring. After many years of making large bed sized quilt for our raffle quilt, we are doing something different. All the members are asked to make a small quilt 16 x 24 of anything they want. We will hang them up and sell raffle tickets for each quilt. I am hoping every member makes a quilt as it would give us a nice variety.

I am making a few of these over the summer to give members an idea of what they can do. I am hoping to do a pieced one as well because not everyone want to do applique.


I was happy with the simple machine quilting. I did a pretty good job staying on the line!


I quilted the background first, next I did the stem and finally the leaves.



Even the back looks good. The colors look so much better in real life. It is a grey day here and I couldn't get a good picture.

  6. The quilt looks adorable. Our guild does a show every other year and we have a raffle quilt and a mini auction. The mini auction is mini quilts 18" square or smaller. Usually we have 100 each day of the show (2 days) and it is a silent auction. At the end of the day those quilts go to the highest bidder and the next ones go up. It is a great fund raiser for the guild.
