Four years ago, my friend Kathy (with a K!) and I started a yearly Quilt Challenge. We buy a piece of “inspiration” fabric and split it in half. We both take a piece of the fabric and design and stitch a quilt in complete secrecy…no hints allowed!! We set a deadline (which we never meet!!) and then get together for the Big Reveal!! This year we chose Lark by Amy Butler .I have a few ideas percolating…I have chosen some solids to co-ordinate. I am auditioning backgrounds…I think I will go for a white tone-on-tone.
This is the Challenge fabric from 2 years ago. I have made 16 Feathered Star blocks. I haven’t put the blocks together yet. I am still trying to decide on a setting. I would also like to add an appliqued border. We will see!!
