Never, Never, Never Give Up!

So, the class on Harley Cow only had 3 sign-ups. Rats.  Lots of admiring of the quilt, but people were scared.  So, went down to the shop last night and talked to the owner about another proposal,"Last Blooms of Summer"  Which will fill in one of the dates I already had for Harley and one more.  She liked the concept and now I am sprinting to get it done.

Kathy Doughty's Garden Party out of her book, "Making Quilts"
My version of the quilt will be called "Last Blooms of Summer" because it will be in Sept.  Also, the background won't be quite as busy-but the flowers will.

This is a large 70x88-almost done with the light strata

Flower colors-there will be more orange and the background will fade to greens browns and dark purples
I have always loved that quilt and wanted to do it so, it just moved up the line!  the point is that I want to teach and if the peeps need a pattern, they shall have one.  I can practice ambiguity at home:)

"Last Blooms of Summer" sounds like a great quilting class. Too bad I live hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of miles from you. Have a great weekend!

Elaine, I have found that there are basically two kinds of quilters--those who challenge themselves with new skills, techniques, and designs--and those who follow the simple, straight-forward designs of others. The second group is much, much larger than the first.
