Doll quilt #9

Made from left-overs of Double Delight again. Don't remember that I made so many extra blocks, but there they were in a shoe box!

This time I decided to showcase the light corners of the Nine-patches by using a dark background fabric. The paisley was a long time resident of my Blue stash shelf.

Added a border to "float" the blocks.

Almost enough fabric left for the back, so I added a little strip of African style fabric to eek it out.

We had a bass sectional rehearsal tonight for the G.R Women's Chorus. We have a lot of foreign language songs: this year French, Macedonian, Serbian, an African tribal language.. .altogether nearly half of our songs! But tonight we mostly worked on our notes and rhythms.

We are having a workshop with Holly Near on Saturday in Lansing, and we need to have a piece to present. Lori, our director, has chosen "Rosa Sat So Martin Could Walk". The rest of the chorus is "Martin walked, so Barack could run. Barack ran, he ran and he won, so that all our children could fly!" The tune is jazzy and syncopated, a fun song to sing--and appropriate to present to Holly, who does a lot of social action songs herself.
