What do you do when you have fabric that’s crying out to be used—you make it into a quilt, of course.
We were inspired by the quilt Neo Stella (page 27) in Barbara Pershing & Mary Hoover’s book StrataVarious Quilts. (We decided to keep the ends of the strata straight and piece them in rather than rounding the ends and appliquéing them.) The fabrics were Princess Mirah Batiks left over from projects we made for Color Your World with Princess Mirah Batiks.
As they say, many hands make light work, and with lots of people helping out, the quilt went together quickly.
We decided to raffle the quilt at our Summer Sizzler Warehouse sale on September 12. Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5. Proceeds benefit the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano. You must be present to enter the raffle (in other words, we’re only selling the tickets at the warehouse sale), but you don’t need to be present to win.
If you live in the area (the warehouse is in Concord, CA), you must come—there are bargains galore, and of course, you can buy your raffle tickets.
