Last year my quilt club decided to have a group challenge. At our Christmas party everyone brought enough 10 inch squares of the same fabric of their choice to share with all the other members. Using all the different fabric squares, each member was asked to make a project of their choice. Here are a few samples of some of the fabric that we had to work with along with the rules.
Rule #1 - The fabric could be cut into any size.Print this post
Pretty fabric, but would it match anything else?
Rule #2 - Each fabric had to be used, on the front, of the project.
Feathers....hmmmm, well it's not called a challenge for nothing.
Rule #3 - Two additional fabrics of your choice could be added to the 16 member fabrics.
Rule #4 - If you did not finish your challenge project, you had to wear pajamas to the big reveal night.
Dragonflies on a bright blue background, pretty but how to work it in with everything else.....
Here's what I made. It's quilt # 38 and I named it "Challenge Quilt". This pattern is called "Newport Beach". I cut each 10 inch block into 4 squares. I added two fabrics, the white background and the beige shadow.
The pattern is from the Judy Martin book titled "Scraps". My "Fathers Fancy" pattern was from this book also. (earlier post)
Here is where this quilt lives, in my bedroom.
Tomorrow, more projects from our big reveal night. (We are a very creative and clever group, don't miss it!!)
