My quilt guild is having a challenge for our upcoming quilt show. We were given these 2 fat quarters and a theme of "Nightscape".
The thing about a challenge is that it is ... well, it's a challenge. It is "a test of one's abilities or resources in a demanding but stimulating undertaking". It's not supposed to be easy, and sometimes it is really a struggle.
I have changed my mind many times about what I would like to create. I have a lot of creative ideas spinning around, have discarded a few lofty ideas, had a couple of false starts, and have settled on one or two possibilities that might become a quilt that I could like. Last week I made some tiny HSTs and made some bigger ones this week, but still haven't decided yet how these blocks are going to fit together into a quilt.
I have also made some circles using my favorite method of Karen Kay Buckley's circles, and liquid spray starch. That was really fun.
And now I need to figure out what to do with the circles. Are circles necessary for a nightscape? Well, I was thinking of moons, and started out with yellow scraps, but somehow the oranges jumped in there, so now I'm not sure!
Stay tuned to see how this challenge turns out... or not!
