Aren’t these beautiful fabrics? Doesn’t your mind get filled with ideas of how to use them?
Our guild is having a quilt show in early April and there is always a challenge for the members to participate in for the show. I’ve had this fabric since May of last year. I’ve always known what I wanted to make, but life truly did get in the way.
Of course, there are rules about what you must and must not do.
- Rule #1 – hand in finished challenge piece at the Feb meeting. (Feb 27th). Nothing like leaving things to the last minute. I think I can get it completed.
- Rule #2 – must not be larger than 18″ x 24″. So little time, so a little project is good.
- Rule #3 – new fabrics may be included, but all the original fabrics must be easily visible in the challenge piece. The original colours were the print with the purple and orange. I’ve added the blue and green.
- Work to your strengths and imagination.
- Have fun.
Now, what pattern am I going to use you ask? I can’t tell you because all the entries must remain anonymous until the voting is finished (at March meeting). What I can tell you is that I found this little pattern gem on a blog belonging to a fellow participate of the 2018 New Bloggers Blop Hop that was hosted last May. That person is Liz who blogs at this cool savoreverystitch.
Can you guess which one it is? I’ll post a picture of my hopefully completed challenge entry in March. Til then, happy quilting.
