Margaret's Hope Chest workshop

Amanda Jean of came to Grand Rapids this weekend with a pattern for "boy" quilts for Margaret's Hope Chest. I put this one together on Friday night and Saturday AM with the blue Confetti blocks I recently constructed.

Carin succeeded in getting Amanda to show her stippling technique on a quilt that "just happened" to be all basted and ready.

As directed, I had prepared plaid 6.5" squares in advance, and in the afternoon I used Oxford cloth for the sashing. Hurray for the someone else who is going to layer, quilt and bind these quilts.

Beautiful work. I love the off balance placement on the "boy" quilts. How lucky someone will be to receive these treasures.
