Each month this year, the CQAFA quilt guild has a word for inspiration. Members can spend as much or as little time as they want or have making something around that word - the idea is to get us thinking and creating.
This month's word was "union." Ever since an issue of Quilting Arts came out ages ago with a cover quilt with a zipper, I wanted to make my own zipper quilt. And with this month's word being union, I could make it work. After all, the zipper comes together. (OK, maybe if I have to explain it, it's a stretch.)
Above is one of the dimensional flowers, made by twisting a strip of fabric and sewing it down.
I said there would be a picture of Nora and the poodle skirt, and here she is with her dad, ready to go to the sock hop. Doesn't she look happy?
