Quilt Guild Challenge

For our quilt show this year, my quilt guild is having a challenge. We received kits with two Fat Quarters (which you can see here) which must be visible in the quilt, and the theme is "Nightscape". I really enjoy participating in a challenge, and since the guild has hosted a quilt show, I have never missed a challenge. So fun!
I plan to make a mini quilt and a small wallhanging, if I have time before the deadline, which is less than 2 weeks away. I have been thinking, and cutting fabrics, and sewing blocks, and getting closer to possibly sewing together a quilt top that resembles (even slightly) my vision.
The HST blocks have been  on my white featherweight machine which is such a dream to sew on. We shall see how pieces come together over the next two weeks. One thing is for sure - quilting life is never dull!

  1. I've only done one challenge with my large guild. I did the 2 color challenge this month, and, partly because I also used the same project as the next sample for the next table runner for my church (I'm teaching it). Maybe one of these days, I'll do another. I do block challenges with my little guild, but, we don't have to finish, just make a block. That is easy.

  4. I love a Challenge too. I have done a few for my local Quilt Show. Based on the Theme. I got to choose my own fabric. I liked that. Can't go wrong with HST's. I'll be watching.

  5. Two weeks and you are making a mini and a wall hanging? I obviously don't know how to budget my time. : )
    Your tease has me curious. Can't wait to catch a glimpse of your "vision".
