Here is the finished quilt top for the Challenge Quilt 2012.
Here is a close-up so that you can see some of the variety of fabrics with which I had to work.Four or five years ago our quilt guild had an ugly fabric quilt challenge. I participated but – to be honest – I didn’t give it my best effort. I think that this quilt is an attempt to compensate for the lack luster quality of the earlier challenge quilt. This is a quilt that I will be proud to show the guild members during our April meeting.
I will be starting the machine quilting this afternoon. After much consideration I have decided to stitch in the ditch with monifiliment thread to emphasize the sho-fly blocks. There will be one final picture of the finished quilt next weekend.
