This big finish is a group effort, headed by my friend Yvonne,
who is celebrating her Jubilee year (50th).
Her sister solicited string blocks from Yvonne's friends,
and I sewed them together and put on the border.
Yvonne coordinated a quilting bee
and many of her friends put in hand stitches.
I pieced the quilt on January 2, and by the beginning of April,
it was completely done.
My only finish this week is this table mat now enroute to Pennsylvania.
I made it from triangles pieced from hand dyed fabrics.
My friend Cheryl gave me the triangles left from her project.
If you live in Akron, PA, and might be hosting students from Winnipeg this weekend,
my son is bringing this to you as a hostess gift.
For any of my blog readers who live in that area,
you can hear my son's school band and choir perform
at Akron Mennonite Church on Sunday morning
and Weaverland Mennonite Church 7 p.m. Sunday.
If by chance someone in blogland hears this group,
wave to the tall clarinetist in the front row.
