Over the past few weeks I've finished two quilts. Yea!! One of them is a challenge quilt for two different groups - not due until July and December . . . and I'm finished in MAY!
Actually, both quilts are for challenges.
The first challenge was 9 Fabrics, 9 Blocks. You had to use exactly 9 fabrics and make exactly 9 blocks. The setting of the blocks was your design decision. Even the binding had to be one of the 9 fabrics.
The second finish is for two different challenges. One of my friendship groups selects a "challenge" for the year. I wanted to do state patterns (NY Beauty, Road to CA, Lone Star, etc.) but was outvoted. We selected Stack 'n Whack - Kaleidoscope. The next month our guild challenge was announced: Use a book from the guild library for inspiration or make a quilt from the book. You know where this is going - we have the Stack 'n Whack book! One quilt, two challenges!!

Thanks for checking in.
