Quilt Guild Challenge

on Feb 16, 2011 in Blog, contests, quilt, quilting, sewing, wichita kansas | 0 comments

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.
