Amy at Park City Gal invited bloggers to an online quilt show. This is the quilt I picked--Tia's Wonky Stars. Tia is married to a serviceman from the US and is stationed in Australia where there were bushfires with loss of homes and lives. She invited us to send her quilt blocks to be made into quilts for these victims. (See the link on the side of her blog.) I had just received a box of fabric from my favorite BIL Paul. He had been cleaning his mother's house (she now lives in a nursing home) and came across lots of fabric. His mother can't tell us what the fabric was originally for, or what she was making. (I suspect a 9 patch quilt as there are some of those already made and/or cut out.) I emptied the box, washed the larger pieces and wondered what I would make. Then came Tia's invite. Each star in this quilt is made out of some of that fabric I was gifted. I had the background and the border and backing fabric, so it didn't take me long to put it together. It's a full size bed quilt, and I hope it will warm someone's body and heart in Australia.
On Tia's Clothesline in Australia---much more light there!
On my spare bed. This has been my favorite quilt for the last few months, I think of it heading off "down under" to warm someone else. Sometimes your favorite quilts are the ones you give away!
