2007 Opportunity Quilt

The 2007 Opportunity Quilt for Manteca Quilters is quilted. Last Tuesday night at my sewing group, the member who machine quilted it droped it off to the chair of the committee. The binding has to be sewn on but you can see what a beautiful quilt it is. The beautiful machine quilting does not show up on these pictures, you really need to see it in person.

The weekend of September 23 at Alex Anderson's quilt show, Quilting in the Garden at Alden Lane Nursery in Livermore, members will be selling some lucky person can win this quilt. I will miss Alex's quilt show this year because of our quilting retreat. Next year we are going to make sure the quilting retreat is on a different weekend so we can go and help sell tickets and see the show. If you get a chance be sure and go to this wonderful show. The quilts are hung on ropes between huge valley oak trees. Alden Lanes is a wonderful nursery and every time I've gone I come home with wonderful plants you can't find here in the valley.

That is a beautiful quilt. Are the leaves applique or a fussycut fabric? Either way looks difficult to me.
