At the first meeting of the Design/Assembly team we looked at various pattern ideas and then surfed the web. Jackie suggested one of her favorite designers, Becky Goldsmith, so we went to her website. When the picture for “Tile Tango” came up there was a little gasp from each of us and the search ended… we had found our quilt! We decided to stay with the blues and purples that the designer had used. We put a call out to guild members for fabrics and received such a good response that we only needed to purchase the white background, blue polka dot and backing fabric. The quilt was lovingly hand quilted for many months before “traveling” to numerous other guild meetings to sell tickets.
