R is for


One of the fiber groups of which I am a member, FANE, puts on a show every Autumn with a theme. This year's theme is The Alphabet and each member was assigned a letter. I got R and kicked around a lot of ideas before I settled on Rose.

I have a lot of photos of rose closeups that I have taken over the years. I really liked the colors in this one and I was pleased to find these hand dyed fabric in my stash (dyed by me). I auditioned several "R"s before I chose  this one. Actually I did another one first and it was a disaster.

Each quilt has to be 16" x 20" which was a nice small size to work on.

There were some letters not taken so I decided to do another. That will be B and if you follow my blog you won't be surprised that I will be doing Buttons. It will be a combination of real buttons and button stamps that I have made. I look forward to working on it.

Each participant also has to make a coloring book page that follows the design of the quilt. Coloring books will be on display and for sale at the show. I haven't started on that yet.

I will be joining up with Off the Wall Friday.

Nicely done on the rose and I like the coloring book idea. A good way to raise money and for people to engage.

Very pretty - your fabrics were just the right colour and I like how you did the 'R' in the corner too.

What an elegant rose and letter R! Perfect background quilting for this piece.

Love the "R" and look forward to the "B is for Buttons" (which would have been my choice too!) Thanks for the comment on my blog!
