pile of quilts for a housing program in NYC - I made the one with green binding
This week my quilt guild did the Big Reveal of the latest challenge: the LOL Challenge. You probably think that means Laugh Out Loud, but you are wrong. This one means Love Our Library Challenge. The participants had to use a book from our guild library, and make something from another person's fabric. At the end it goes back to the original owner of the fabric.
It was a great challenge for these reasons:
* they had to use a book that was assigned to them.. maybe not one they would normally be interested in
* they had to use another person's fabric.. maybe in a colorway they didn't like
* they had to try to make it beautiful, because it would turn into a gift to the fabric owner
* THEY ALL TURNED OUT FABULOUS! They were so pretty and cleverly done. (BTW, I did not participate in this challenge.)
Wouldn't you love to see a picture of them?
I sure would!
I didn't take along my camera. No pictures. Sorry. To be honest, I wanted to take my camera along, knowing the Big Reveal was that night. But, I have resigned as historian (now called photographer) of the guild. I have been kind of oozing back into the role, but don't want to be counted on for photos. I resigned, after all. So I purposely left my camera at home.... hoping they'll eventually believe me, and someone else will step into our vacant role as photographer for our guild.
Hey, on another note, I think complaining works! I complained about hot weather, and then it went from hot to cold. I was doing a sub job today, and we took the school kids outside for lunch. It was breezy and cold!!! Brr! But I am happy. I'd rather be a little cool than to be hot and sweaty.
A busy few days coming up.. some fun stuff and then helping our son move away (boo hoo). I might be absent from my blog for a few days. Try not to cry too hard.
