On the first Friday of the month our downtown area hosts an event called "Art Hop". Each business has the option of participating. An artist is chosen for each business and gets to have an exhibit of their work as well as pieces for sale. My friend, Nancy, who owns the restaurant "The Garden Gate Cafe" has asked me to be her artist for December. I was very reluctant at first but then agreed. I wasn't sure that I would have enough time to prepare. Sometimes a little push is what's needed and she provided that. So here is the first quilt that I will be selling. I'm calling it "Sugar Rails". I have used some of my most favorite fabrics, everything from Lecien to Tanya Whelan, to Cath Kidston. It's a simple rail fence block yet the fabrics make this quilt. Now to hand quilt or machine quilt? What do you think?
