Challenge Quilt Complete
Hi friends :) I hope you had a great weekend! We spent ours in Dinosaur, camping with the kids. I’ll have to tell you about it later this week. Right now I want to show you the mini quilt I made for a design challenge with the local guild.
I was given this page from a seed catalog, and given instruction to take inspiration for a quilt from it. I mentioned
before that I really liked the picture on the left, with the shadows and variety of green…Here’s the finished product ::
The most artsy quilt I’ve made to date! I first put in the lines, thinking about the vines, while not straight vines do offer structure and support. Then I added as much haphazard free motion quilting as I could in order to keep all my circles in place.
Some of the edges are bent over onto itself and others flap a tiny bit.
I hope you can see the texture in this one. I didn’t wash it, but I did throw in the dryer with a bunch of wet clothes! I wanted it to fluff up without too much fraying :) What do you think? I had fun just being creative with it – I tend to over think stuff…
If you are planning to quilt-along with me this week, here’s a few posts that will help to prepare you ::
