I have to take a short diversion from double knitting because I have photos to share. You see, it is deer season here in our neighborhood. Last summer they arrived and ate all of the Hostas - right down to the ground. This year, they seem to have a fondness for geraniums.
Tuesday night was the monthly meeting of the Evergreen Quilt Guild and I wanted to share the gift they gave to me for surviving a two-year term as president. First of all, the more than 140 members did this all in secret. I was totally unaware that this was afoot. Each member made two 9-patch 6" squares using purples and whites. One of the members made this gorgeous box in which to present the squares.
When I opened the box, this is what I found. There are enough squares to make a King sized quilt and I have figured out how I want to configure it. The plan is to sew 4 of the 6" squares together to make 12" squares. I am also looking for a pretty complimentary border print for sashing and borders. Much fun. Can't wait to get started.
Have a great day and see you all tonight for the Bay Lakes Knitting Guild meeting.
