I entered 3 blocks in the challenge:
So... I entered my blocks into the challenge pool. The rules for quilt camp are that you get one entry for each completed block, and all the blocks are awarded to a single winner, drawn at random on the final day. Although I have participated in making blocks for several years (often playing with patterns and techniques I have long wanted to try--isn't that the point?), I must admit that I haven't wanted to actually win the blocks until this year. I just love 1930's prints--the more the merrier.
I won twenty-one 12" blocks! With the responsibility to make them into a finished quilt top by next year's Quilt Camp date (coming up in January, in case you forgot like I did). I did some dreaming and playing with the blocks last spring, then put them away. Having remembered my January deadline, I got the blocks out again to assess where I am, and give them some more of my time and energy.
Blocks, in no particular order...
|My favorite 1930's setting is to have clean white backgrounds.|
|Busy fabrics compete with each other here|
|Applique butterflies! What a treat.|
|This Rail Fence is too small, so I need to add another rail.|
|Again, I think there were size issues with the border of the block. I'm re-sewing|
|Another butterfly. So cute!|
