A Presidential Quilt

Before we went camping, the guild’s annual potluck, auction, and installation of new officer’s meeting happened.  At this meeting we say goodbye to the old officers (I was the Vice President for the past two years).  One of the traditions of the guild is to make a quilt top for the out-going president.  As Vice President, it was my duty to choose a pattern, arrange for every member to have access to the pattern, and arrange the assembly of the top.

I chose this pattern from Paper Panache.  Though there were complaints that the pattern was too hard, it was the simpler of the two that I had narrowed down my choices to.  I contacted Paper Panache and she generously allowed me to make enough copies to distribute to those who do not have printer/computer access in our guild.

Here is my block:


yes, you see right… no lime green in this block!

Here is the completed top when we gave it to her:


Some of the ladies put buttons, etc on the blocks and it turned out so great!
