Bold Over! Quilt and 1950 Challenge Fabric Quilts

 Here is the finished Bold Over! batik quilt (29" (w) by 16" (h)). Not my favorite quilt and one that I don't think I ever felt.  I think I was distracted by thinking about indigo. I am happy that it is finished and I am sure I will be able to find it a good home.
I am thrilled that the 1950 challenge fabric quilts continue to inspire. You can give your help/opinion on Janice Paine Dawes' quilt by visiting her blog. Vivian Helena Aumond-Capone is making progress which you can see on her blog. You don't want to miss Kathryn Schmidt's blog and how she is adding green organza to her quilt. I hope that those of you who worried that all the quilts would look alike will now agree that each is unique and is truly an expression of the makers. I can't wait to see the final quilts! And I am counting the days (13) until the next challenge begins!

This is also the final day for Foto/Fiber and the price has dropped to $50.00. Stop by for all the details here:

Your help in reaching the goal of $7000 to add to the $215,000 that has already been donated to the American Cancer Society is greatly appreciated. I'm trying not to be bummed that no one has taken me up on my BONUSES.  Please consider supporting this effort! I did!


  1. Karen, it is bright (which I like) and you have done a great job of pulling the colors together.
    Can't wait to see all of the challenge artworks.
