Labyrinth Quilt Project for the 2010 TLS Annual Gathering Silent Auction

TLS 2010 Silent Auction Quilt DesignWe are looking for 9 – 16 quilters among the TLS membership to volunteer to piece one block each for 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.

Please contact Laura to indicate your interest in participating, by January 15, 2010. At that time kits, including pattern and materials, will be sent to each quilter. Finished blocks should be returned to LFN Textiles by April 1, 2010, for final assembly & quilting. Laura may also be reached by phone at: (812) 682-3733, or by mail, at: LFN Textiles, P.O. Box 122, New Harmony, IN 47631.

The finished quilt will be sold in the Silent Auction at the TLS Annual Gathering in New Harmony in November 2010. The Silent Auction supports the scholarship fund of TLS. This will be the 12th Annual Gathering of The Labyrinth Society, and it is due to the generosity of our members that we are able to provide scholarships to support attendance each year.
