It’s a challenge

Last weekend we held our annual informal Friends Challenge.  This gives us an excuse to meet together with friends we see rarely, travel to a quilt shop, and spend the day having lunch together, shopping, and sharing our interpretation of the year’s challenge.

This year the challenge was to make a piece incorporating a 12” block, a 6” block, a 3” block and a star. 

Here’s my piece:

Challenge 2014

The fan blocks are 6”.  The centre is made up of four 3” blocks, and the star measures 12”.  I foundation pieced the fan blades from my collection of plaid fabrics, naively expecting that this would “use them up”.  (We never learn, do we!)  Then I indulged in some feathers for the quilting.  The piece is about 25” square – haven’t decided whether it will go on a table or on the wall.

By golly, what an AWESOME piece! I cant find the blocks and I consider myself an expert at dissecting a quilt of its construction. Just amazing!

Wow, great, gorgeous! And all from scraps or stash? Winner, winner chicken dinner! And the meet-up was the icing on the cake!

wow! I love your border! The whole quilt is beautiful, but the border really sets it off. And it is funny that we think we will be finished with scraps!

Amazing! Mission accomplished... beautifully accomplished I should say. First visit on your blog and I love what I see. Great work.
