The reason for going though the stash - I have three Christmas panels I want to do for (1) Grand kids, (2) kids I used to Nanny to and (3) two brothers in my neighborhood that adopted me as a "stand-in" Grandma. My grands will embellish their own panel and I'll do the others as a gift. I know it's a little like cheating but time is running out and I really want to do this. Please Ms. Quilt Police, don't get me, get that gal playing by the rules..
It's not a large panel and should be fun to do.
VALLEJO PIECEMAKERS QUILTING CLUB
Do you participate in challenges your quilting guild/club/bee hold during the year??? I do and our 2012 Challenge was to make something from pieces of decorator's fabrics - the fabrics that's you choose from the heavy books in stores. The coordinator placed several pieces in a brown paper bag, whatever is in your bag is what you use. You can make any thing you want, it can be wearable (vest, coat, apron etc...) or tote bag, handbag, quilt or wallhanging - the choice is yours. Well I did a wallhanging. Take a look
Unfortunately for me I wasn't at the meeting, I went to my home town to visit my family and friends for close to three months. So I didn't get to see what the others produce. Oh yeah, I left my piece with a friend to submit for me. They display entries around the room and the guild vote on the most original, creative etc. I hope they have pictures at the Christmas party this weekend. That remind me, I need to get a yard a fabric for the gift exchange. Back to my stash, I go. Trying not to buy fabric, need to use what I have. It's sooo hard to do &$&&&^^^(&^%^$%$%^$
Thanks for stopping by, I need to start on that Christmas panel and the two UFOs
Piece and prayers till the next time
