Hi. My quilting bee and I have been working on a quilt called Ethnic Echoes, to be auctioned off at the local Heritage Day Fair Event. It is from a kit, but we have been very happy with the result. You can better see some of the ethnic influenced fabrics if you click on the picture.
If anyone wants very nice donation quilts for an absolute steal, come to Heritage Day in Raleigh (every October). The value you can get for some of these quilts is unbelievable. There were about 100 quilts donated by guild members and auctioned off. The revenue is split between the guild, for speakers and the like, and a local charity, which changes each year. The Ethnic Echoes quilt above was purchased at the auction by my husband to give to his mother for her birthday.
