I have been concentrating on a special project for a dear family friend so quilting has taken a backseat over this past week or two. I have however completed my charity quilt for the next Souhegan Valley Quilters Guild fund raiser. Each member of my guild was asked to make a mini quilt with the guidelines being that the quilt must measure 16"x16", theme 'Love, Peace, Hope," and must contain Blue! Can't show you the quilt yet but here's a Sneak Peek at the label.
Photo credit goes to my wonderful husband Eric!! Thanks Bud-E!!
