I do love a quilting challenge; even if it’s only me who sets rules for working on a piece. I just love working within the boundaries, sometimes pushing them as far as they go. Yesterday I joined a new challenge, The Erosion Bundle Project. I will hang my bundle of fabric and stuff in the garden in January, take it down on April, and use it in a piece by August. It sounds like so much fun as I have never tried anything like this before.
My guild just had a challenge for their 20th year anniversary. We all got a ca 30*30cm piece of red fabric which we should use in a quilt. That piece of red fabric was taunting me for months, and I was totally uninspired by it. Finally I just had to make something from the darn thing, so I used my Heavenly Angel illustration, and made this little quilt.
We also had a napkin challenge for our Christmas meeting last year (I had to look it up, I was so sure it was this January…) – make a quilt inspired from a napkin and bring both to the meeting.
I made this (red scraps and some inking)
inspired by this.It was such a fun challenge, with all kinds of imaginative quilty projects.
