Welcome to another edition of Wonderful Wednesday!! I'm here to share the UFO that I completed last week. It has been a long time in the making. Even before I had a plan for the orphan blocks that make up the center of my quilt, I knew that I wanted to sew them into a circle. This year's Guild Challenge gave me the opportunity to do just that.
The Out of the Box Challenge...
... Asked that you do something outside your comfort zone and for me, working with batik fabrics is not something I do very often. I raided the drawer of batik scrap (gifted to me by friends) to find pieces to make the borders necessary to bring the quilt up to size:
A few days before the deadline, my entry finally reached an appropriate size for the challenge, which ranged from a 20" square up to a 22" square or anything in between:
Just a couple of days before the deadline, it was layered for quilting and that meant curves in order to further meet the required circles, spots, dots, and/or curves that needed to be part of each participants design:
I'm a happy camper. This is my completed quilt, with its 4-fabric, non-mitered binding - another thing that I don't do very often:
Here it is with the other entries:
Such a wonderful variety of designs, inspired by the challenge (set by me, the Challenge Coordinator, for the 2nd year in a row.) Thank you to those members who played along!
Until next time...
Time for a happy dance!!!
