HAPPY QUILTING!!

Quilt Challenge

Posted by maz574 on Wednesday, August 11th, 2010

Well, this has been a great summer so far!  Dora and I have been very busy lately. In the past few years we have joined 4 local quilt guilds and each one of them have some sort of a challenge to complete over the summer.  The last couple of days I have been working on one that we were supposed to make something out of some "ugly" fabric we got from a game we played at one of the meetings.  I liked some of the fabric I got.  Fortunately, it was the largest piece from the 4 that I had gotten so I thought it would be a good idea to make a purse.  I used the fabric that I liked on the outside (the yellow fabric) and the real "ugly" fabric on the inside as pockets and a stabilizer for the bottom of the purse.  It's a little bright for me, but I really like the size and think it came out pretty nice.
