• Quiltsville Challenge quilt top done

    Ignore the wrinkles. It was pressed very nicely before I folded it up to take to work for show and tell. The quilt takes a more traditional quilt block and puts it into a contemporary layout using bright colors.

  • Quiltsville Challenge

    Back a couple of weeks ago I showed you a collection of fabrics I had put together. I have been trying to find a scrappy design but haven’t been thrilled with anything I found. Sometimes, a girl just has to wait for inspiration to show up. At the same time, the 2014 Leaders and Enders challenge was announced on Bonnie Hunter’s blog at Quiltsville Quips & Snips. The photo on the left shows you the block design for the challenge.
