Last year, I watched a group of friends participate in the Sisterhood of the traveling quilts. I loved the idea, and the wonderful creations they made.
The idea is that you start your quilt and then it moves onto the next person and they add something based on your guidelines. I am so happy, I am joining in on all the fun, this year. Also joining is Liz from Beadqueene’s Bits and Baubles.
This was my inspiration mosaic (posted on IG. (ml_wilkie) and pulled from my inspirational quilts board on pinterest (squeekcrafts)).
I was additionally inspired today by the road signs as we traveled to the mountains. My husband thought I was crazy snapping road signs all along our trip, but then he also finds it funny that I see a quilt design in everything 😀
So, taking these images and combining it with my preferred color palette (Kona Torch, Kona Pool, Kona Titanium, Kona Regal and various Neutrals)….my initial block designs for my sisterhood quilt look like this so far.
I may add a couple more blocks that are based on some of the other things we saw – like a bridge, ski lift etc. Now, all I need to do is get these made before QuiltCon so I can pass them along to the next person who will be adding to my blocks.
