We made it to Telluride in a respectable time, unlike last year.  Phew.  There was a flurry of activity at our house the last couple of days before we left.  I mailed off something like twenty-eight packages, some of which were for the Virtual Quilting Bee.

I chose these Denyse Schmidt prints from my stash because I have always wanted to make a quilt from them, but just haven’t gotten around to it.  I sent the other 11 ladies each one fat quarter and kept the floral in the top right for my own square because I only had a small piece.

I asked the others to make me a nine patch square using the fabric I sent for the middle squares on each side.  They can choose a second fabric that contrasts or coordinates for the corner pieces and a third print or solid for the center.  I’m going for a look similar to the ones in this photo.  Mine still needs some work – I will take it apart when I get home and change the center square to a third print.  When I have all twelve squares in my hands, I will probably sash them together using white and maybe add some other prints where the corners meet.  I am looking forward to seeing what these ladies come up with.

Thanks for the packing list love….I am going to work on a master list that will be available for download in the next couple of weeks.  Also, although I will be posting on the blog while on vacation, I am going to take a break from responding to comments.  Please know that I read them all and really appreciate every single one.  Thanks.

Back tomorrow with news on what was in fifteen of the other packages I sent.
