I won "Best Quilting" in our local guild's fabric challenge. It's kind of like the Hoffman challenge, but we are given "ugly" fabrics. . or hard-to-pair fabrics, and everyone is to make a quilt.
The winning categories are:
Most unique use of fabric.
Best use of color.
Best MIXED technique and
I wish I would have got a photo of everyone's projects, but I didn't =c/
But here's mine!!
The block I used for this quilt is from the book "50 paper pieced stars" by Carol Doak. This block is ALABAMA. . I just chose it because it looked the easiest. and I had a very limited time to complete this project. The very center of the 8-point stars is the first fabric in the challenge. The other fabric we were required to use is the fabric I used on the borders. We were given a fat quarter of each fabric. I used EVERY LITTLE PIECE of the fat quarter for the borders for this quilt. I mean there was not a speck of it left!
I quilted the outer borders with burgundy thread in a feather pattern. The black areas I did my version of McTing, and I outline quilted the stars.
This was the first sorta contest I have participated in, it was fun to see what everyone came up with!
