WIP Whenever

I decided to use up some well-aged fabric for this guild-pieced version of "Modern Snowball". When it's finished, it will become a fundraiser quilt for a non-profit organization.

This is another quilt top for Quilt Bank, the committee of my guild (New Mexico Quilters' Association) responsible to raffle/silent auction quilts. The applique heart blocks were donated. I purchased coordinating fabrics to create the top shown. My hope was to add more character than doing a basic patchwork design would provide.

 I'm well pleased with how my brother's graduation quilt is coming along, regardless of the fact that he just completed his sophomore year of college. I plan to add a few borders before prepping it for quilting. The C's are letter jacket letters. The logo is raw edge applique. As this quilt is unlikely to go through the wash, I opted not to stitch down the logo. When I attempted this, it gave the poor Indian numerous puncture wounds. Besides, it's no small task navigating around those jagged, small pieces.
