Guild President's Quilt

I had the opportunity to organize and work on the quilt for our guilds outgoing President a couple of years ago. It was a fun project to work on, but at the same time I was nervous. Why nervous you ask? Well, making a quilt for myself is one thing, but making one for someone else is an entirely different matter. Sure, she knew the quilt would be coming because any guild President that serves 2 years gets a quilt from the guild. The tricky part is what fabrics to use and what pattern or design. This ended up being fairly easy. I had a general idea of her fabric preference and knew she likes traditional patterns. I selected a pattern from a BH&G Quilt Sampler and used 30's reproduction fabrics (the apron and feed sack styles and none of the "cutesie" prints). She loves this quilt! whew
