Some great fabrics I scored on sale from Connecting Threads (January 23):
The Modern Quilt Workshop" by Bill Kerr and Weeks Ringle. I'm really enjoying the book, by the way!
And a completed quilt! June 9:
Wisconsin Dual Sport Riders have very generously been doing a Ride for Research every summer to support cancer research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Our lab has benefited in so many ways; not only has their funding really helped us out, but all the WIDSR folks are amazing people, and their friendship has been invaluable. Plus, the boss lets us out of the lab to go to the ride and say thank you!
June 11: This was our (very small) part of their incredible event.
This photo is just awesome and self-explanatory. I'll never be this cool.
All in all, an incredible experience. It felt so good to enjoy my love of playing with fabric, then donate the resulting quilt to the folks who use their passion for "building community goodwill through motorcycling" to support the research I care so much about.
