Juki for sale

Received the following email from a quilter wanting to sell her Juki

Dear fellow quilter,

My name is Cheryl  and I am planning

on selling my Juki sewing machine,

I have plenty of pictures, it has

been well taken care of and serviced.

If you know of someone who is interested

my email address is:

strmrgr@protonmail.com

We come to the Roanoke Area once a month

to visit grand kids, so, would be willing

to bring it only if someone is serious.

As it is a very heavy machine, would 

prefer not to take it on the road too much.

Thank you for your help.

We no longer have any quilt shops or guilds

in our area.  Very sad.

Respectfully,

Cheryl

Chinese Whispers Challenge March 2022

This project was a Starry Eyes challenge. The Chinese Whispers game is similar to the children’s game of telephone tag, in which the first player creates a story or message and whispers it to the next person in line. The second person repeats the message to the third person, and so on until the last person. The last person then shares what she/he heard, which is often quite different from the original message. The concept was applied to a quilt challenge, in which the first quilter to participate creates an art quilt. That quilt was then given to the second person who used the original quilt as inspiration. The second quilt was passed to the third person, who only saw the second quilt, and so on. Each person only saw the previous quilt. At the conclusion of the challenge, the quilts were displayed as a group, and members explained what gave them the inspiration for their quilt. There were no rules to creating the quilts, for example size, techniques used, color, etc. It was fascinating to see the progression of themes throughout the group of quilts.
