Labyrinth Quilt Project for the 2010 TLS Annual Gathering Silent Auction

We are looking for 9 – 16 quilters among the TLS membership to volunteer to piece one block each of a collaborative quilt, which will be available during the Silent Auction at the 2010 Annual Gathering. The final quilt will be a 54” square, 7-circuit labyrinth, designed by Ben Nicholson. Patterns, fabric, and instructions, will be provided by Laura Foster Nicholson, of LFN Textiles. Laura will arrange for the blocks to be sewn together, backed, and quilted, and will provide backing and batting materials to finish the quilt. Laura is also looking for a quilter’s guild to volunteer to sew these blocks together and to quilt the labyrinth. If you believe your guild would be interested in doing this, please contact Laura as soon as possible.
