Both of my guilds have yearly challenges, sometimes I participate and sometimes not. Usually depends on how many "rules" they put in place. The current challenge from evening guild was selected by the president. She gathered up a huge bag of orphan blocks from the guild members without telling us what was going to happen. A couple of months ago she had us close our eyes, reach in the bag and select a block. In addition to that we were given a FQ of cream tone on tone fabric of which we were to use at least 8 square inches.... This is what I received.
I knew the first thing I wanted to do was put it on point, then decided to go ahead and use the required cream...
It sat on my design wall for a day or so while I rummaged around in my stash trying to find something to go with the fabrics. I had already purchased an outer border fabric and didn't want to buy anything else. I found this blue and had enough of the yellow left to make the required squares...
So this is what is currently on my design wall, waiting for inspiration on what to add next. The challenge requires the quilt to be at least 36 x 42 inches. I am aiming to make mine between 45 and 50 inches square.
I completed ALL my weekly goals last week, hurray!!!! This week I have a couple of appointments and friday we will be going to the University of Maryland for their admitted student open house so I am not going to set many goals other than to get a couple of customer quilts quilted and hopefully finish the challenge quilt top.
Have a wonderful week.
