2011 Challenge Quilt

I’m a member of the Evening Star Quilt Guild that meets in Davison, Michigan.  This year we were given a challenge; here are the rules:

  • Must be a completed (quilted and bound) 25″ square quilt including a quilt label.
  • You can only use a total of 2 fabrics ‐ the fat quarter given and an additional fabric of your choosing.
  • You can have it quilted by another quilter if you’d like. You must give credit on the quilt label for the quilter.
  • You are welcome to embellish the piece. You can use
    ribbons, beads, buttons, decorative threads, etc. Ribbons
    may not be used as a third fabric though.
  • You can make your piece using any method of quilting you
    like. Applique, piecing, foundation piecing, fussy cutting,

Everyone participating in the challenge was given a fat quarter from the same bolt of fabric.  Here is mine:

Here is the fabric I chose to go with it:
2011 Challenge 002
I have an idea in mind, but I need to play with it a bit before I cut.  My background fabric is a hand dyed piece created by Vicki Welch.  Vicki does fabulous work!!! Please check out her Etsy shop.  Tell her Caron sent you!
Stay tuned and I’ll share my creative process along the way. 
Today is a good day to work on this, as it’s been raining all weekend, which means that “Candy,” our new motorcycle, is staying dry in our garage.  Come on over to our house if you want to watch me pout.  Whining might also be going on.

  1. I can't wait to see what you are going to do with those two fabrics; I love them both. I have a batik addiction, so of course, now I am working on two Aunt Grace projects. lol

    Take care,

  2. I love that fabric and Davison is not all that far from me; we take our bullies to a vet who has an office in Davison as well as Lapeer. I love the name of your bike; mine is called Red-Dog; in honor of my beloved bully Niles that we lost in 2009; I feel like he rides with me and keeps me safe; no mean feat these days with all the crazy drivers out there. Stay safe my friend. Merrie
