Isn’t this adorable! This quilt was made by the WAQG bee called The Wannabees, for their biennial donation to the MD Anderson Quilt Project that they hold every 2 years. Some of their quilts travel to different locations and guild shows to promote their auction (proceeds to cancer research). They also have a huge booth @ Houston Quilt Festival. Quilts will be displayed there this year and next year, then the auction will be maybe a month after Festival next year. 2 years to collect and promote. You should see the Cherrywood exhibit they have going right now. (I looked for a link but not seeing it online yet, friends have posted photos) Amazing talent in that exhibit! It’s such a good cause, not only do we help raise funds, quilting is also being brought into the spotlight and our local talents can shine!
This year the bee worked on a fun, whimsical quilt that will be treasured by some lucky person. I used Leisha Farnworth “Kindling” design, hand guided panto to create a fur like effect and create lots of texture and consistent quilting. I see this being a quilt used on a bed, well loved.
