What is a quilt challenge you ask? Well it is when a bunch of quilters get together and challenge each other to make a quilt by a certain time.
I have never done a challenge before, and I was eager to return to quilting and rejuvinate some of my quilting techniques. (Despite the fact that I am terribly busy stocking my shelves for the holiday season and the upcoming craft shows and house parties... why not add one more thing to my plate... right?)
Here is a picture of the model quilt. It is a "Snowball" pattern, and can be done as a two tone (as seen here with the reds and creams) or it can be done with multi-colors. I would like to do a two-tone, but I cannot decide which color to do. I am thinking of either red, blue, or green with the creams and whites. Any suggestions??
The other aspect of this challenge is a fabric swap. We were asked to look through our stash to find creams and light colors to swap with other quilters involved in the challenge. I didn't have quite enough in my stash, so I purchased some and cut it up to send out to 7 other quilters all around the country. It will be fun to see what fabric I get back in the mail from those same quilters. Here is my fabric all ready to be packaged and mailed off to the happy recipients.
