The Bama Belles quilt guild decided to make a quilt called "Goldfish Crackers." One of the members found this online and the group decided to make these quilts for the children at a nearby residential school. Here are the blocks I made for our team's quilt.
Before the day was finished we started laying out the quilt. Linda was busy doing several things at once so her blocks were not yet completed when we did the initial layout.
So, as she sewed that part, I sewed the top three rows together.
We had decided to use blue backgrounds for all of the quilts, but the blue fabrics varied between quilts.
Brenda was sewing away on hers.
Bev was away from her table when I was taking photos - but she made some very cute blocks also.

And she had more in process-
Lois was also a busy bee making her blocks.
Her light blue background is very soft and lovely, but even better is the green fabric she was using for the fish bodies.
|Isn't it adorable?|
On an interesting side note, I discovered that I can use the magnetic clasp on my Fitbit band as a temporary pin holder. However, when I went to the other side of the room to square my blocks, the pin apparently brushed off of it. Luckily I found it before anyone got jabbed by it.
We had a great day and have three quilts well on the way to being ready. I left my spare cut pieces to be used by anyone who needs them to make another quilt or for some of their blocks.
I mentioned a few days ago that I am preparing pieces for a gallery show. In April, the Mountain Valley Arts Council in Guntersville, Alabama will be displaying my work along with that of Rita Winters, a traditional weaver. I will have paintings, woven garments and art quilts in the display. At last count, I had over 40 pieces ready for hanging. I am very excited about the exhibit. If you are in the area, the exhibit opens on April 5th. There will be a reception on April 6th from 5-7 p.m. Central time at the Gallery. I would love to see you there.Comments are welcomed.
