Charleston in Bloom

Charleston in Bloom,  Cobblestone Quilters Guild 2010 Opportunity Quilt

Charleston in Bloom, Cobblestone Quilters Guild 2010 Opportunity Quilt

This beautiful quilt is the Cobblestone Quilters Guild 2010 Opportunity Quilt to support our quilt show, A Celebration of Quilts.  The theme of the show is Charleston in Bloom and that is also the name of our quilt

The quilt was designed by Virginia Schrenker of the guild and a TTT gal.  She and I did the construction – Virginia did the applique designs and I assisted with placement and some of the machine stitching.  The Tuesday Thimbles and Threads gals assisted with cutting out all the pieces and parts.  Then it was machine quilted by Judy Heyward.  I had planned to quilt it but when the top was finished I got scared of it.  Judy does absolutely gorgeous machine quilting on her domestic machine and I felt she would be the best quilter for this masterpiece so I asked her if she would quilt it and she graciously accepted the challenge.

It is a large wallhanging size.  If you are interested in an opportunity to own this wonderful work of fiber art, please contact me.  It will become someone’s pride and joy at the close of our quilt show on March 7, 2010.

    Those silk azaleas in the left hand corner are removeable, aren’t they?

    Carrie – I don’t think the silk azaleas are removable. Virginia learned a new method in a class recently and used it – it involves Bo Nash powder.

    Those azaleas are sewed on, not glued on with BoNash. Since I needed to have the plastic center to hold the flower together, I decided that sewing them on would be better. Thanks for all the wonderful comments.
