Last week began with quilts when I gave "Every Quilt Tells a Story" for the Antioch chapter of Questers. (Here is more about the national organization.) Two members are friends from AAUW and I knew one of the other women in the group.
The AAUW board met Thursday evening. Joanne brought this lovely quilt which came from her husband's family. It's made out of neckties. There's no batting and the top is not tied to the backing. The edge is finished with knitted (I think) lace. The feather stitching is very even. There's a quarter to show how small the blocks are.
I have all the bricks sewn onto the quilt that I'm repairing. I have to figure out how to attach the replacement binding. That is this week's project.
I've begun a batch of 9" Ohio Stars in red, white, and blue. I'm using up pieces of white-on-white and light cream-on-cream. I also found a partially-filled shoebox with star-print squares (set aside for a project I've forgotten) that are proving handy. The blocks will go to Karen, the moderator of the Block Swappers group. She is also a Quilts of Valor coordinator. My goal is to make 365 blocks using stash on hand. Here are the first 28.

P.S. I also made the March Block Lotto blocks: blue broken dishes. I used up some blue prints that I've had for a very long time.
