Challenge Quilt Two And Challenge

I dug out these orphan blocks that I had made for a project long ago abandoned to begin the next quilt using Rayna Gillman's book. However, when I go to digging around in my scrap bin, I came across a Bold Over Batiks!  panel that I had bought nearly 15 years ago. As a sidebar, here's a little known fact, I was one the who suggested the exclamation mark for the business' name. Anyway, more digging turned up fabric that went well with the panel but the black and white log cabin squares just didn't seem to work. So I've simply set aside the blocks and I will get back to them later.  Here's what I've done so far. I am continuing to have fun.

Here is the list of people who have signed on to make a quilt using the challenge fabric posted on January 5. If I missed including you, please let me know.

1. Rayna Gillman

  3. Martha! You made my day! Hugs, Karen

  4. Yeah! We are getting a big group of people that need to either find their muse or jump start their creative side in this new year. This is going to be fun and more fun as we see each others directions and how we transform the base fabric into something fun!

    Thank you Miss Karen for giving us something to do in January!

  5. Like what you're adding to the batik,Karen - look forward to seeing the progress.

    (Hi Martha!) It looks like a fun group -

    Karen, did you really doubt that people would be clamoring for an ugly fabric challenge? I hope there's not a deadline!

  6. Rayna, Yes, I'll admit that I doubted people would join in but not because of the fabric. And, yes, there will be a deadline because we all need them. Thank you for coming into my life. With gratitude, Karen
