Guess what I did while driving to the big town last night???
Yep for about 20 minutes - and it felt soooo good on my burnt forehead! Aaaah!
I wasn't too concerned about the coldness making my head red for the directory photo tonight - it's gonna be RED reguardless! :P so I might as well feel relieved at least. I guess if it were already pealing (which I'm sure it will) that would be worse than red for the photo. :P
Speaking of the photo - This is what we stood in front of for our profile pics. It's our Guild's 2010 Raffle Quilt! Isn't it beautiful! I just love the small sized blocks and colors! I just recently joined so I can't say that I helped in any way... but I do hope to help by SELLING CHANCES on it :)
These are some of the ladies that worked together to create the quilt. There were more quilt makers who worked on the project but they were not at the night meeting.
I know what you are wondering - What's the name of that pattern? Who's the pattern designer...? How can I buy a copy?
Well - Ta-Da! Meet Kim Diehl, the pattern designer of this year's Guild Raffle Quilt! The name of the pattern is "Passing Fancy Quilt" and it's included in her book titled "Simple Traditions." She was our guest speaker tonight! She had some VERY BEAUTIFUL quilts in her trunk show! Many of which had more of her beautiful applique!
Kim's story of how she got started in quilting was very cool - check out her Bio on this page of her own website. Just goes to show you that ANYTHING is possible!
Oh and here is one more photo of one of Kim's patterns I'll leave you with - after I came home and Googled some to get some links to share with you - I found THIS FREE PATTERN of the quilt above HERE and thought you might like it. ;) I also learned that Kim has her own fabric line she has designed too although she didn't once mention it last night.
