How to Quilt with Minky Fabric
17 hours ago
"Home Sweet Home" is where I am at last! We spent several enjoyable days at the All-American Quarter Horse Congress in Columbus, Ohio. And the week prior to that, I spent three days at a very productive quilt retreat. So I'm glad to be home once again. Although since arriving home, I've devoted some time being quite befuddled by losing my photos in the web albums. But at last I located them and was successful in adding them to this post. My computer always seems to be several steps ahead of me, and it does the most inexplicable things. This quilt was my entry in our recent guild challenge of making a house quilt. I found the houses design in a Thimbleberries quilt and surrounded them with free-pieced lettering and some quilt blocks made as part of a Modern Quilts Craftsy class. It was one of those quilts that kind of invents itself, and was fun to piece. The orange gives it a bit of a Halloween look, although that's not necessarily what I was going for!
And this is the back. I added bits and pieces to a large piece of fabric that wasn't quite large enough to form a backing. We had more than 16 entries and all of them reflected a lot of creativity. Do you participate in challenges? I find them hard to resist.
