I finally finished my challenge quilt. The guild I belong to put out a challenge this spring for the members where we were each given a shape and told to incorporate it into a quilt. You had to maintain the integrity of the shape using any material. The quilt could be any size. Mine finished out at 40" X 34".
The greatest challenge was making sure that my kite shape was represented on 70% of the quilt. The most difficult part for me was selecting the fabric.
Here is a detail of the stitching. I have decided to call it "Letting Go".
Then straight into another quilt... "Pretty in Pink". I am adding the binding on here. Quite often this is the only thing done by hand as most quilts are quilted by machine.
Pretty in Pink is 42" X 53"... a child's or lap sized quilt. Do you recognize the fabric Ruth? I am slowly gaining confidence with quilting with my long arm. Still managed to break 3 needles, but am happy with the final result.
I chose tulips and tulip leaves. I have not attempted to use a template, just run free hand, so the tulips vary in size and shape.
Thanks for stopping by and safe travels everyone.
