Equal Rights

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

While my mom was in town last Christmas, we decided to do a quilt shop hop - my first shop hop ever! Myself, my mom, my sister, a friend of my mom's as well as her daughter all piled in a car and drove all over Central Texas.  While many of the shops were closed for the holidays, we were able to find plenty of fabrics at the stores that were open to empty our pocket books!  First stop was the Quilt Haus in New Braunfels, where I picked up a bundle of fat quarters from the Henry Glass's Summertime collection.   I had no idea what to do with it, but knew I was in love.  Miles down the road and hours later, while at the Honey Bee Quilt Store in North Austin, I picked up a pattern for Swirly Girl's Equal Rights quilt, and a match made in heaven was born!  After searching far and wide for the template for this pattern, which I finally had to order on-line, I got started on the top and didn't stop until it was done.  I had originally decided to save this top to piece at the AMQG inaugural retreat in February.  I thought I would cut out the pieces ahead of time and then work on the layout and sewing during the retreat.  But before I knew it, I had pieced the entire top...weeks before the retreat!  I still have yet to quilt it.  Any suggestions?  Anyone?  Bueller?  Bueller?
