Quilt Guild Challenge
The local traditional guild hosted a challenge.
We picked up fabrics in November.
Well, they are due this week.
- The challenge had to incorporate the orange or green (highlighted below). A piece of brown and a piece of beige. When you purchased your challenge bundle, you received either a green or orange- I sat next to a lady who received the color opposite myself, so we half’d our pieces and incorporated both.
- The challenge also had a to have 4″ diameter (or larger) circle in the design.
- We had to make our finished quilt under a certain size so that the collection of quilts could be considered for the AQS Knoxville Guild Challenge.
- You aren’t supposed to show anyone your quilt ’til its actually due.
I was able to use only fabrics from my own stash to complete the top. Isn’t it just wonderful that I have all sorts of funky colored stuff hoarded away? hahaha.
I think there will be a fair amount of entrants. Once all the designs are collected, there’s some kind of vote or committe to see who will make it to the Knoxville round. Though I love love my quilt, I know the ladies in our guild are crazy-talented. We’ll see if it makes the cut. Keep your fingers crossed for me. =)
I free motion quilted the quilt (which I guess I didn’t snap a photo of that) and the binding is brown and beige, with each color lining up with the opposite one around the edge. (yep, no pic.)
I’ll keep you posted.
