Scrap Quilt Challenge

Kim Lapacek over at Persimmon Dreams is having a Scrap Quilt  Challenge. My kind of challenge :)

Once I saw it, I realized the quilt I made for our guild's Bloomin' Challenge, Bloomin' Friends, would qualify. We were  given three fabrics - the purple floral, the blue/black abstract floral, and the green/pink architectural print, and had to come up with a quilt. I threw a bunch of my scraps into the mix so they would play together nicely.

Not going to post it until I can confirm the size, though.

2017 Friendship Star Quilt Guild Show

Our show was last weekend, and it's been until now that I've been able to think about putting up photos! These are in semi-random order- mine are first, others are later.

This started as a "leaf" challenge from my mini-group. The blocks are mini, but the overall size grew to tablerunner-ish.

This was started for last year's guild challenge. I ran out of the cream fabric, so it's not as long as the rules required.

Our mini-group challenge!  We all agreed to make at least one quilt 12 x 12 or smaller, that qualified as a miniature.

My quilt is the trip around the world with the pink binding in the middle of the bottom row.

A little pink heart quilt.

Mine is the one on the top- made out of the leftover cut-off "ears" from making a heart quilt.

This year's guild challenge was the "Nobel Challenge" using Bob Dylan's lyrics. I chose "Blowin' in the Wind." Not very well subscribed; we needed to have 8 to enter back in March and didn't even come close. There were only three exhibited; I know mine was finished the week before the show.

My quilt for the Bloomin' Challenge. Three unrelated FQ to make a quilt; I added lots more for a scrappy friendship star.

A view of a couple of the flyers. It's hard to remember to look up!!

There were quite a few quilts that I thought I'd like to make.

Overall, a great show.
