It was a challenge

Every year our guild is invited to submit quilts for the SewExpo in Fredericksburg, Virginia, and this year our challenge was to make 36 x 36 quilts using half square triangles.  I didn't make it to the show to capture all the entries, but here are some that were shown at the guild meeting:

I apologize for all the "head shots" - I wasn't standing in the best place for pics!

I like how each quilter put her own spin on the challenge, making it uniquely her own! 

And last but not least!  Remember this disobedient quilt? 

I swapped the first border for one with a smaller print.  Although it isn't super perfect (the sunflowers are too large for one thing), it got finished and put into the show!

That's it for now, enjoy your Monday ... sew forth and sew on


  1. It's always amazing what can be done with simple triangles! Your guild certainly rose to the challenge!
    And I'm happy to see those wonderful little baskets done - the colors just sing!

  2. Quilters are the most creative people I know. Any pattern ... any fabric ... any challenge, and they are up to it! Give them all a virtual round of applause.
