More Nancy Drew

25 03 2016

The full-sized version of the Nancy Drew quilt is finally finished and photographed.  There were so many of these great fabrics that I felt I had to include as much as I possibly could.  The bold colors were fun to play with.

And here is a detail of the blocks and some of the quilting.

The “Get a Clue” line of fabrics from Moda also included these larger panels of the book covers, so I used this piece for the back instead of trying to find a comfortable way to cut these into blocks.

Nancy Drew Quilt--Back

Do you remember Nancy?  Yes, I read the books in my youth, and I have re-read a few more recently, too, just to take a trip down memory lane.

Now my daughter collects those old books we all discarded, so this quilt is for her.

Just a few more EBHQ postcard makers

4 03 2016

As promised, here are just a few of the many, many fabric postcards made by EBHQ members other than me.

These are ones that have already been turned in for our fabulous postcard fund-raiser at the upcoming Voices in Cloth 2016 Show (Click HERE for the link to the show details).

Please come to the show and stop by the postcard station by the windows.  This is your chance to make a small donation to our guild and take a little work of art home with you, to share with a friend or keep for yourself.

I have also included a few cards whose maker’s names I didn’t catch, for a variety of reasons.  If you recognize these, let me know and I will update the photos.
