Woohoo! I finished up my wearable for the Canadian Quilters' Association Trend-Tex Challenge.
It is our annual fundraiser, our only fundraiser and it helps us with operational costs. This was under my duties this year as VP. The theme was 'Modern Ways' and we added in a wearable category along with the quilt category.
Above is the front, and there are 3 pockets inside and it is lined. Below is the back. I even went all out and padded the strap so it is ultra comfortable.
In case you didn't know (and the pics above gave no hints), I have an obsession with circles and dots. My dear friend MT showed up at our guild meeting last month and plunked a bag of fabric down and told me it was to help my addiction.
Guess what was inside? Hundreds of these precut colourful circles.
Does anyone have any super ideas about what I can do with them, and please do not say hand applique anything=)
During all the circle excitement, I started another project.
Our President's Challenge at my guild is a black and white quilt. I designed a quilt on my sketch pad, made a few notes and got underway. You can see all my black and white, with a sneak of grey in there, of fabric.
I then pieced them together in groups of twos. Did you notice that I added a few bits of colour to wake you up.
I have to sew them into rows and then join them all. But it is still not done, then comes the crazy part.
