Saturday with El and Julian Women’s Club

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

Every year the Julian Women’s Club make an Opportunity Quilt at my home, Bear’s Paw Ranch. Each July the  winning ticket is drawn at their annual quilt show. Proceeds support the youth of Julian. Planning starts in January with a group discussing the opportunity quilt and making items for the country store.

The group decided to make a patriotic quilt, similar to Teresa Varnes’s First Ladies quilt from my new Tales of First Ladies book.

In the Koala studio, ladies divided into teams to work on each pair of blocks.

Oh  no! We skipped a whole page in the book! Time to unsew.

Jan and Diane pressed everything perfectly.

What do you say, thumbs up or thumbs down??

We used this method to vote for our favorite fabric for the Eagle’s shield.

Can you pick out the gals that voted with both hands? Shame!
