My apologies for not discussing this at last night’s meeting…with everything going on, we simply forgot.
We have a challenge for you all that includes a very cool fabric giveaway. It all started at our awesome fabric panel at Stitch Modern which featured a wide array of really talented local fabric designers. One of those designers was Jennifer Moore from Monaluna.
She has a new line out called Modern Home that is super cute. Jennifer explained to us how this line included a lot of herself such as llamas (which were at her wedding), her cat, her home, etc. She gave us fabric to give to our guild memers, but sadly it was not a lot. And while it is tempting for me to just keep it and not say anything, I won’t;) Instead we are proposing this…participate in the challenge for a chance to win some of this super cute fabric!!
So the challenge is this:
1. Create a 12″ block that describes you. Much like Jennifer put herself into her fabric design, we want you to put yourself into your block. This may be simple piecing, paper piecing, applique…whatever. We just want a block that expresses who you are.
2. Quilt the block as you see fit. This means it must have three layers and can be tied, hand quilted, or quilted by machine…what ever fits you best.
3. Bind the quilted block as you see fit. We are open to creativity on this. You can do a traditional binding or a zig zag/serging stitch.
4. Bring the block to the March EBMQG meeting to share and be entered in a drawing for a fat quarter bundle! It is just that easy!!
We look forward to see what you guys come up with! Please keep in mind that this will not be judged, you just have to participate:)
