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:
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.
