Still like brightest.

I am trying to finish one last volunteer project before going overseas - our annual donation quilt for Camp Rainbow. The box in the photo has the "project packs" ready to hand out at the next guild meeting. Partly I'm showing this so you can see I do work in other colorways than just reproducing fabrics! I have a lot of purple and bright green too!
The quilt will be of my own design and I'm more than a bit nervous about it! So far a half a dozen blocks have been handed in and they all look fun. We have had enough folks volunteer to do the applique so I'm feeling pretty good about the whole thing! More photos to follow!
Working with the brights this weekend is cold and wet outside. I even found myself watching women's hockey on TV and liking it! I grew up in New England playing hockey on the town pond but had lost my appreciation for it. Olympic rules are a bit different...more finesse than beat-down. (Not to say they don't play hard though!) It may end up being the only event of the Olympics that I go out of my way to follow!
Tomorrow I will be doing quilt demonstrations at the museum with some other members of the quilt guild. It is part of the exhibit that is on display there until the second week of April. I'll try and get some photos of the neat cheddar quilt on display!!!

I'm so excited you designed this one yourself - want to see those blocks! Love the bright fabric.

Sorry the weather has been blechy.

those fabrics look fun to work with, can't wait to see what you come up for your camp quilt!
OHHHH and really can't wait to see the cheddar quilt. I just love seeing cheddar in quilts!

Oh I hope the camera goes with you and you get pics of the cheddar quilt, you know I've been dying to see it!

The camp rainbow quilt is going to be darling. I have complete faith in you, you always do the best stuff and isn't it great not to have to follow a pattern and have "certain people" who shall remain nameless, but we know who they are....demand that they make their blocks in the exact same fabrics as in the pattern because they can't use their imaginations enough to see it done in anything else? "oh,it HAS to be that piece of cake plaid, or it won't look right!" *pulling out hair* Because this is your design, what you say goes, and you don't have to deal with that!
