It's no secret that I am among those who are appalled by and resistant to Trump and his administration. I made this little quilt because there has been a call for fiber art themed "Threads of Resistance." Probably preaching to the choir, but here is my first shot. There might be a second.

Sayonara to all my postcard friends out there. Art will always be the best way to share ourselves.

Tomorrow I will carry another quilt (see below) as I join the Women's March in San Luis Obispo. Here's hoping that kindness, generosity, and vigilance will see us through.

After resisting BOMs lo these many years of quilting, in 2016 I participated in a guild Block of the Month Challenge. We received instructions for eleven different log cabin blocks. Here is what I learned: it was kind of fun to make just one block a month, but by number eleven I was not loving them all together.
Not one to abandon a challenge, I whacked 9 of them in half, added some other smaller units, and three shades of blue. I assembled them into 12 Quilt-As-You-Go blocks backed by an assortment of stash fabrics. Both sides are whacky, but I'm done in time for the reveal at tomorrow's meeting.
Now to finish a BOM Challenge for my other guild. Stay tuned for more whacking.
