Brackenridge Quilt

River Run Pattern by Esch House Quilts
My friends and I have formed a quilting group, the Brack Pack, for this Brackenridge Park Conservancy project.
We met last week to start our planning; and today, Marti and I met with Jeana.
Jeana is so helpful with ideas and suggestions.
She has also volunteered to long arm the quilt for us. Yay!
Today, the three of us decided that Batiks would be best for this quilt.
We will be quilting photos of the park onto this quilt.
At first, we had thought of applique, but now we will piece them into the quilt.
How we are going to do this has been left up to me…yikes!
Jeana gave me some suggestions, so I am going to make a practice piece to see if I can do it.
I couldn’t make it to the meeting Marti scheduled with Lynn Osborne Bobbitt, the executive director of the conservancy.
Marti reported that Lynn and her staff are all excited about this quilt.
So are we!
Usually, my friends just run the other way when I come up with an idea.
But this time, we are all on board.
We will go to Creations, a fabric shop in Kerrville, Texas,  on April 28th.
We heard they have a good selection of Batiks.
We also just want to go have lunch in Kerrville!
Tomorrow is a sister day in Kyle, Texas.
I am picking up my older sister and driving to Kyle to meet our youngest sister for her birthday lunch.
We will be eating at Garcia’s Restaurant…yummy!
