Challenge Fabric Quilt Conitnues

While I continue to play with the challenge fabric quilt, I decided I needed a break so I started quilting the beige and black quilt. I love how quilting brings a quilt alive!

I am also pleased to announce that Anna Mowicki from the UK is joining the challenge. Anna now completes the group. Anna has several blogs so I am not sure yet which one to link to so I'll keep you posted.

I am off to celebrate the Korean New Year! Happy New Year. Once I eat my rice soup, I'll be another year older and hopefully wiser. Make it a great and creative day!


  1. Taking a break is good! Although Karen used my book as inspiration in her own work and (unbeknownst to me) for this fabric challenge, there is something I need to say.

    When I wrote my book, the idea was for people NOT to follow rules and to just let go, play, not worry about matching seams - and to end up using the fabrics in your own (non-pattern-following) original work. What I showed in the book were suggestions for what you can do - but there is lots of room for you to take off and try other ways of combining strips and squares/rectangles and creating your own units that are different from the ones I did for the book.

    I love that we are all doing different things with that ugly challenge fabric (including leaving it as is - LOL)
    Everybody's color sense is unique, your sense of proportion and composition is different from anyone else's and I am hopeful that you will follow own muse so your distinct "fingerprint" is on your work. This is supposed to be "therapy sewing," - remember?

    Rayna - who is taking her own break for the next week, due to a house full of guests leading up to a large family event next weekend.

  2. I am excited that so many of us signed up for the challenge! My missing muse is so awake now, that I sometimes can't sleep as she keeps throwing ideas at me for finishing old projects and starting new projects.

    Happy New Year!
