Yesterday I wrote about my different attempts at making a challenge quilt using this awful fabric. The challenge was to make the best use of this fabric in a quilt that was less than 200″ around the perimeter.
Sidebar – my husband read what I wrote yesterday and made an interesting comment. He said that I’m unlike a lot of quilters who will start a project, decide they don’t like it, then either never finish it, or struggle to finish it because it’s awful, or it’s not turning out like they had imagined. And I suddenly realized this is why I NEVER cut out all my fabric at the beginning of a project! I used to think it was because I’m unorganized and impatient; I need to see what the block looks like when it’s sewn. But now I realize it’s because I want to be able to change things as I go along, and if all the fabric is cut up already, I lose that flexibility. Ha. I’m smarter than I thought I was. I think. 😀
Today I will show you all the challenge quilts that were made. Go ahead and vote on which one(s) you like the best! These are not in any kind of order, and if you can’t see the number posted on the quilt, then it’s at the bottom of the picture.
What a wide variety of quilts! Isn’t it amazing, the different designs we each came up with?
I’ll be back tomorrow to announce which quilt won, and which quilt was mine.
