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.
