I found it. My second PHD. I knew it was around here somewhere. If you are wondering what PHD stands for, read the post from Monday.
This piece was started back in 2001 when I was building my home. Honestly, it feels like yesterday. While this is 12 years old, I can be happy with the fact that at least I only have two "Projects Half Done." As a quilter you know that's down right amazing! hee,hee,hee. ;)
This quilt was part of a round robin with some friends. I created this part and then it was passed on to the next person in the group to add their part. Seems I've been stuck on the word love, bunnies and hearts for a long time. :)
Each month would meet at a members house for dinner.
The member would show what they added to the other members quilt. However, you as the owner were not allowed to see. It was a secret until the end. Then, we would hand off the quilt to the next member and another round would be added.
Around and around the quilt was passed.
Each member adding another section.
Until the final month when we all went out for a fancy dinner and had the big reveal. Oh what fun it was!
I started to hand quilt this piece all those years ago and then in the true nature of a quilter, I got sidetracked with other projects. I've decided to rip out the hand quilting and just finish it off by machine. It's small enough that I can handle the machine quilting. Anything larger than this gives me a migraine and a backache.
When I was photographing this quilt for today's post, I remembered how much I looked forward to each month spent with friends and creating something fun and mysterious.
I think that's why I'm looking forward to Fellowship of the Flowers. But, instead of once a month, we will have something every week to look forward to. I can't wait! I'll tell you more about it next Wednesday.
