I was out running a few errands & doing the shopping earlier this week & made a quick detour to a LQS - Pieceful Gathering Quilt Shop (Fox River Grove, IL). Over the past weekend, they held there 7th Annual Quilt Show & Open House and I need to pick up my Challenge entry. While I didn't win , it was a fun challenge & a great show with 97 quilts were entered. The shop specializes in reproduction fabrics - mainly 1800's, including civil war era prints and early 1900's, including cute 30's prints. They also have a longarm machine on site & two experienced quilters to finish your tops.
The Challenge started back in January & ran for 4 months. We had to select a neutral from a choice of 3 preselected prints and follow specific rules for each border - size (which followed the Fibonacci sequence), fabric, blocks to include. I am planning on doing it again next year! Here's my entry from this year - Fibonacci Framed.
And of course, I couldn't resist browsing their selection for fabric for another quilt to make for next year's show. I found a few solids I like, some are Sahara cloth. Maybe a miniature...
As you might have guessed - I'm a Pre-Washer. And no, I don't want to open that kettle of Fat Quarters - I say 'To each, their own'!
Working on the barn quilt design Thursday afternoon & Friday but I can't post a picture quite yet as it's not yet finalized & I want to surprise Martha. I will say it looks like it will be based on a 5/8" grid - that will be interesting!
