Secret Project #4 Revealed

Also known as: my guild’s annual challenge quilt.

Every year, with my guild’s annual quilt show, they have a challenge.  The rules vary each year.

This year – the rules were:

1. Must have a 6” focus square that is appliqued and embellished.
2. Must have 3 separate and distinct borders.
3. The quilt can be any shape, but must be no larger than 56” in perimeter.

Last night, each entry was hung out and the guild members were allowed to vote on their favorite three quilts.  They will then calculate the votes and at the opening reception of the quilt show, the top three will have ribbons. The makers were anonymous until after all the votes were collected.

 

Here is my entry:

I hand-appliqued the flowers and hand quilted the quilt.  The half-square triangle border is 1/2”.  My fingers hurt for days!!

Here are the other entries:

This one is Margaret’s.  She has a quilt hanging in Paducah right now.  This in remembrance of last year’s tsunami in Japan.463095_274775545949732_100002518667297_586865_2096887264_o

My friend Maureen’s.  The challenge for her was to only make one quilt… she didn’t make it; this was her second one.

I am a mom of two that now resides in San Antonio area. I moved from Hawaii a year ago. I am a full-time student that works part time at the college I attend as a work-study. When I have time, I quilt, make jewelry, and now craft with my new silhouette cameo cutter.

    A very talented guild of quilters. Very nice quilts.

    • Kim says:

      Yes, everyone who entered is so talented. This was the most entries that have ever entered (at least in the last 5 years that I have been in the guild). We have about 270 members in the guild.

  2. Lynn W. says:

    Yours turned out beautifully, Kim. I can see why your fingers were hurting!

    • Kim says:

      Thanks Lynn… mine was the only one that looked more “traditional” of all the other entries, so I am anxious to see how it did.
