Blueberries for Sal

image

For another new baby born last week. I was inspired to make this for the QNL Magazine Traditional to Modern contest but didn’t finish quilting in time to enter it.fortunately it is also a binary quilt, so I may borrow it back for the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild Binary Challenge.  So at least I finished in time for that.  Quilt time is scarce these days but I am happy.

Finished: District Commissioner gift, memory quilt

This is a quilt made of contributions from the West Point Grey Girl Guides District in Vancouver, BC. There is a square from each unit, as well as some additional squares for various groups within the District network.

I really enjoyed putting it together and I love the variety in the squares. The “flat” side is a pattern from Hoffman Fabrics called “Izumi Pond” and I chose it for its relative simplicity and asymmetry that I though would compliment the variety of the group memory blocks arranged on the other side.
