My new (and most favorite) quilt guild has issued us a challenge. We have the best president ever. She was given a hint to contact Robert Kaufman Fabrics. The company sent us enough of these charm packs for each due paying member of the guild. In return, we just need to give permission to use photographs of our work on their blog should they decide to honor us with a post. So, our president has issued a challenge.
As with any challenge there are rules..
Finished item must be able to hang on wall. So no purses, bowls, clothing, etc.
Finished item must be between 120"-180" in perimeter.
We must use at least 21 of the charm squares.
Item MUST be quilted and bound.
We can add 1 or 2 other SOLID fabrics.
Finish date is June 11th.
If we don't finish by June 11th, we have to pay the guild $10 for the charm pack. That right there is a major incentive ...
Oy vey... this IS a challenge for me. I have been playing around with my markers and graph paper for a few days now and might have an idea. It needs tweaking, but I think I like it...
What? You thought I was actually going to let you see my sketch?? I don't think so. I think even this photo shows a bit too much. I will promise to show some sneak peaks in the future and I might even show a good photo before June 11th...but don't hold your breath.
Right now there is no judging or prizes, but that could change by June 11th... Who knows, maybe Robert Kaufman himself will fly in to judge...crazier things have happened .. There IS a real live Robert Kaufman, RIGHT??
