Now that the October meeting is well past, I guess that it is time to blog about it!!!
Two months ago we issued a color challenge where we each picked a color from a hat. The original idea was that there could be no trading, but that didn’t work out quite as planned. There were a few trades (including myself and Deb), but the results were wonderful….
Cleo presented this pink quilt with fabric beads that were made in a previous FF meeting…….
Nancy had this great red fabric and jus started cutting out shapes until she came up with this rose bush….. Francyne is a self-professed “non-purple” person, but she did a great job with this quilt…..
I wanted to try doing a piece with only thread, and it looked great….from 2 feet away. Unfortunately, if you got any further way, the quilting just disappeared into the fabric!! I decided to use a pen to accent the design and went to Hobby Lobby to buy one. As I looked at the $7.00 pens, I noticed an orange Sharpie for $1.99 and decided that it would work fine….and it did!!!!
I hope to finish the piece with some additional quilting patterns as a border!!
You may notice that many of the pieces were not finished and that is one thing that I love about our group. We are all busy people and have agreed that there is NO pressure to finish any of the challenges.
