The Full Score Chamber Orchestra gala was Saturday evening. The turnout wasn't terrific, but the music certainly was! The guest musicians, Sultans of String , were fabulous -- a Toronto-based group specializing in world music. They give kids' concerts and will do just that this week with two performances for Zion District 6. Our Rotary Club provided the funding.
Here is what became of the red and green Ohio Star blocks I posted for DWM last week. It turned out bigger than I anticipated -- 78 x 90. I had to buy the green fabric for the setting triangles and borders.
You'd think that there would have been something suitable in the red and green stash. (The picture shows reds and greens that are 1/2 yd and larger. I have fat quarters (whole and pieces) in another place.)
Or, failing that, in the Christmas stash.
But I'm pleased I talked myself out of being stingy. The green print works that way I envisioned.
I went to three estate sales and got these towels -- just .75 each. The Christmas/New Year and the cutwork pieces have never been used.
Nancy-near-Philadelphia hosted a swap of Lady of the Lake blocks in blue batik/white-on-white. Here are the blocks I received. (Two blocks need some reorientation!) I'm not sure how many blocks I will add or how I will set them. For the time being I will just admire them.
I'm linking up with other quiltmakers for Design Wall Monday at Judy's Patchwork Times.
