The Quilter's Cave

Notes to myself and anyone else who is interested.

2009 Guild Challenge

2009 Guild ChallengeShow and Tells From the Cave

This was a fun challenge for our quild.  We each brought 1 yard of fabric.  We were divided into groups according to if our fabrics were brights or pastels.  We sat in a circle.  We tore our yard of fabric in half down the middle on the widest side.  We kept 1/2 yard and passed the other to the person on our right.  From the 1/2 yard we received from the person on our left, we again tore it down the middle on the widest side.  Again keeping 1/2 and passing 1/2 to the right.  We continued in the process until all we received was a rectange about the size of 4x6. 

We were told to add only 2 additional fabrics from our stash to complete a childs quilt to be given to charity. 

I tried to follow instructions and added the dark and light blue strips that borders the large restanges of prints.  I did have one of the fabrics in my stash at home so I was able to use that up as well.  So I cheated a bit, but I wasn't introducing a new fabric pattern.

Roni, I have done that at guild but I confess I never made a quilt with the fabric I ended up with.  Your quilt is so fun.

We had a show and tell at the March quilt meeting with everyone's challenge project.  It was really fun to see what everyone did.  We also had to bring a baggie with all our left overs.  I didn't have anything.  I used every bit.  The rail fence variation allowed me to do that.  I won a spool of thread for my efforts.  Thanks for the great comments.
