There’s something really wrong here… These are the fabrics for my quilt guild’s 2011 challenge. Where’s the blue???
Actually, I like participating in quilt challenges because it forces me to move outside my comfort zone. For this challenge we each received a fat quarter of gold Kona cotton and a fat eighth of gold lamé. We need to use at least half of each of them. Hmmm…I wouldn’t normally use either of these fabrics. We can add up to ten fabrics, and we have to have at least one 3-D embellishment — another thing I don’t normally do. Plus, at least one-fourth of the quilt must be pieced. What? I fuse everything! The theme is “Glorious.” Should prove to be interesting. Time is running short since it must be completed by September 13. Thankfully, it can be small.
Does anyone in the guild know if these are supposed to be kept secret? I’m not so good at that! Blogging about the process keeps me focused.
I played around with a few design ideas, but I had to push all of that aside so I could finish preparing for the “Making Faces” workshop that I’ll be teaching tomorrow. I’m looking forward to that! Should be fun. DD#2 will be helping me. Shhh…don’t tell her it’s all a part of my nefarious scheme to lure her into quilting. After all, she did ask if she could have my old sewing machine for her birthday. Everything is coming together!
