I never can resist a good challenge! So when it was announced at the guild that there was a crayon challenge again this year, I stepped up and grabbed a baggie. And got white. The rules state you only need to use your color 50% of the piece, so everyone told me to just use it as background. Where is the challenge in that??
So I quickly put together a pile of white fabrics, various textures and shades of white.
Laid out a 12"x12" plan.
And started basting. Let me tell you, this will be the last thing I glue baste. The quickness of the beginning is not worth the trouble at the end.
I had originally thought this would be a good hand project before we left for our two week vacation out East. But, I got the whole top put together before we even packed!
Quilting and finishing didn't take long either. A layer of heavy interfacing and a layer of thin batting. Wiggle quilting along the seam lines. It is a stitch setting on my machine.
Et Voila, a finish. I turned it in last month at our guild meeting. It will be up for Silent Auction starting in September (I think)
I took the quilt outside for photos, against my garden. It is quite over taken by Evening Primrose.
Shockingly white, here.
I also spent some time trying to capture a good photo of a native bee visiting the flowers.
She was much more interested in nectar than posing!
