A Quilting Story

By Cheryl L. Murphy

This piece was designed with the seasons in mind. There's a bit of a story to this quilt. It was collaboration between me, Trish, Ann, and Pam. Pam is a prolific quilter and does a lovely, lovely job. Trish and Ann are award winning quilters....big time! We did what is called a "Round Robin". Each of us designed a center block and then passed it to the next person to add a "round" to the center. We were able to keep them one month. Since Trish had been my instructor and is so perfect in her execution, it was very intimidating! As I received a block when it was time to trade, I would hang it on the wall and study it for three weeks before attempting to add a round! When this finally found it's way home, I was thrilled! Each of the ladies caught the story of the center block. And…as always, I used my tiny Gingher scissors to clip all my threads! Cuts like butter!
