I mentioned yesterday that my quilting group had our great "Reveal" on Monday. The group did a round robin over the last 9 months, with each person making one 12-1/2" block for each other person in the group over the year. We started with 1 metre of fabric of our personal choice, and were not allowed to see what anyone else had made with our fabric until this week.
This was the fabric that I chose, quite nontraditional with some bold
rich colours. I was quite excited to see how my quilting friends rose to
the challenge of this fabric!
And rise to the challenge they did! Here I am opening up my box of surprises, and laying them out on Anne's deck. It was fun to hear about the choices made in the design of each block. Some were chosen because of the name ("Prairie Queen" because of my Etsy shop name), others for the symbolism or number of fabrics used. There is even some of this fabric in one of the blocks!
And here are all my finished blocks, which are even more stunning in person. They are all gorgeous, and I am very happy with all of them! I have more fabric to add a few of my own sometime, and then maybe make this into a lap quilt for the living room. Thank you Bonnie, Karen, Brenda, Audrey, AnneK, Stephanie, AnneF, and Cheryl! Well done!
Any ideas on colours and design for sashing and borders? That's definitely my weak area with quilting. How do you pull it all together?
