Coastal Lily Raffle Quilt of NWA

Here it is all done and off the frame.
This quilt will be raffled off at the NWA Q.U.I.L.T. Show on April 5 & 6 of 2019. Come to the quilt show and buy some tickets you could have this quilt laying on your bed. Tickets should be available for purchase at the April Meeting (next month). 

The Raffle Team included Natalie McCroy, Elizabeth Ray and Myself. We met up and decided on a pattern and fabric. Then cut the fabric and separated flowers and 4 piece flying geese units. These units were bagged and handed out to the members of  NWA Q.U.I.L.T. Guild.
Once all the units had been sewn together our team met again to determine the color layout of the flowers.
We took 2 rows each and pieced them together, borders were added and we had a quilt top. I loved working with these ladies. It was so amazing how we all had the same vison and we worked so well together making sure that this vison came through in the quilt. ❤

Then the time came, time for bed. The fever had taken me down
Being sick sometimes is the only thing that will make me slow down.

After a couple of days in bed, the urge to get up to do something becomes so overwhelming

After a shower and cleaning up my room. I went out on my patio and sat in the sun. Looking out into the winter forest. Thinking of the first time I saw this land and house. Still to this day I am amazed that we are here. That we made it, our dream came true. It was a ton of w…
