Fiddle sticks at a square dance
The pattern is called fiddlesticks. The fabrics were from a quilt guild noodle exchange. One was reds and the other was blacks and whites. I purchased the pattern when I was Iowa attending the funerals of two family members. The fabric was cut while I was staying with my dad after he had surgery and my mom was in the hospital. After having carpel tunnel surgery my therapist told me to quilt, so I pieced the top. A friend machine quilted it for me. One of the quilting patterns was called square dance, hence the name of Fiddle sticks at a square dance. I sewed the binding on the week my mother passed away. A few weeks later it earned the first blue ribbon at a quilt show. While I could give away almost any quilt I have made, this quilt has way too many memories for me to ever give away.
