At last months EVQG meeting we revealed our challenge quilts. Everyone did a really good job of making a quilt to represent the gift bag they drew.
Next years challenge is wide open. We need to find our birth month on any calendar and make a quilt to represent the picture. All we have to do is use the colors in the picture. The quilt doesn’t have to look like the picture. The picture I found was fireworks, because at the time I thought the quilt had to look like or at least have the theme of the picture and I have been wanting to try thread art. Thought the fireworks would be something easy to start with. Now all I have to do is make any quilt that is red, gold, white and black. I think I know which quilt I want to make using black and white fabrics with red and gold accents. It is the quilt from the AQG black and white exchange. I didn’t participate in the exchange, so I may have to collect some more black and white fabrics.
The Christmas exchange for the AQG is a table runner. We must make it and it has to be at least 14” wide and 44” long. I found a table runner pattern in a quilt magazine and made the top. Well, I left off the last two borders. It looks nice without them and more than meets the size requirements at 16 1/2” x 47 1/2”.
I also have a T-shirt quilt to get started on. I just want to get a couple of projects out of the way first. Like the table runner and quilting and binding a community service quilt.
