My Traveling Quilt is DONE!
“Love You To The Moon and Back”
How pleasant it is to finish what has been a two-year project of the Mt. Battie Modern Quilt Guild in Camden, Maine.
NINE women worked on this quilt. I started it with the “Love You to the Moon and Back” block. The quilt then “traveled” through the hands of eight other quilters, who added blocks and sewed blocks together when they could. At the same time, I was making blocks and joining up sections when I could for each of the other eight quilters.
Here are the eight quilters who worked on my quilt: Becca Babb-Brott, Lynn Vermeulen, Linda Satkowski, Tori Manzi, Megan Bruns, Margaret-Elaine Jinno, JoAnn Moore, and Nancy Wright.
I used Lizzy House’s new fabric line “Constellations” (Andover) for the backing and binding. And used my Bishop Fan groovy boards to quilt with a light grey thread. Four of the quilters made labels for me, and I wrote the names of the others into the side of the lable.
I like how the bright gold frames this quilt. (The bottom border is straight, there is just a funny camera angle here.)
So now Mt. Battie Modern has started it’s new BIG project, and ALL the members are joining in the fun. I will describe this project in future posts, or you can go to our Mt. Battie Modern Quilt Guild Facebook page to take a look.
