Community Supper update


Oh wow! I am having a ball with all your wonderful orphan blocks! The count is 44 received with promises of at least 12 more. I must say, I haven’t seen one that I would consider a “reject”. Each one is truly wonderful!

I’ve started quilting a few. Here is my friend, Christina’s (Tina to me) block with fabulous Liberty prints. Yum!
And this one from Karen (Suzie Karen to me).
Both Tina and Karen are in my Seven Sistahs group. The other 4 (and of course me) have promised one as well. I’d be lost without these ladies!

I think I mentioned that the backs will be different “cheater” (printed patchwork) fabrics.
It seems fitting since we have all been “cheated” by having to keep our distance with friends and family. 


I wanted to find a binding fabric that would tie all these diverse blocks together and figured it would have to be black. I found this Jo Morton fabric that I adore but I had less than 2 yards. 
So, I started rummaging and found this “perfect” fabric designed by Judy Roche and Corienne Kramer. It really looks like it could be a virus!
Judy had given it to me a while back knowing how much I love the old neon prints. I knew that Cyndi had not carried this line so I did a search and found enough on Etsy to make all the bindings.
 Pot luck truly is the best!

Oh Wendy, the virus looking neon print is a perfect choice! Certainly gives one the impression of a bug. I am looking forward to your finished piece as I know it is going to be creative and wonderful.
