Sylvia made this quilt as a fundraiser for Corbett, OR schools. Corbett is a little tiny town up in the gorge, and her son attended school there. He was also the auctioneer for this fundraiser, so I hope they made lots of money.
Sylvia used lots of different sports prints in the blocks, then red and black for the school colors. There are some photos of the schools, as well a a block of the school mascot, the Cardinals.
Here's a quilt that Betsi made from scraps for her son. I just love scrappy quilts! I know that Betsi told me the significance of the name of this quilt, but I've already forgotten.
It's really lovely in harvest colors, and the backing is actually a deep red, not the orange that my camera made it look like. Lucky son to get such a beautiful quilt!
This quilt was a long time in the making. Started out as a Block of the Month at the Heart to Hand quilt shop. I ended up sending it to Austria for my dear friend Ursi when she was going through some difficult personal times. The leftover corners from Ursi's quilt and what made up this quilt's blocks. I had them stuffed in a bag in the closet for "someday", and that day finally arrived! One of my many resolutions this year was to clean out the closet of the bags of "someday" projects. I'm making progress! I found an extra block from Ursi's quilt, so that became the center, and then used the extra fabrics that I had from her quilt for setting squares and borders. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out, and I've got less stuff in my closet too!
Yes, he's been at it again! Michael must not sleep for all the quilts that he's able to piece. Here is the first Irish Chain that I quilted for him recently. The bees in the primary fabric made me think of honeycombs, so that's what we used for the quilting design
