A CHALLENGE WAS ISSUED

On Angela Walters Blog she issued a challenge to the world, it was to make something from one of her own designer panels. Well who could resist. Not I, so I purchased one of the panels and a co-ordinate which you may have seen on here already, but I will refresh your memory. These are the two fabrics I bought.

The lime green is the plain co-ordinate to go with the panel

We could make anything we wanted to, I resisted temptation to see what others were making as sometimes you get ‘influenced’ by what you see. Being a Quilter, I just had to make a quilt didn’t I? Here it is then my finished quilt made from the above fabrics, which I chopped up, sewed, chopped up and sewed again. I had such fun with this, the bits left over from all that chopping have become the binding. Which I am pleased to say.. just managed to go round…phew! I have entered this into the competition – well I hope I have – I didn’t quite understand the form you had to fill in, took me forever to find it..ha ha still learning on the computer folks.

I have called this Quilt “Round the Square” I do hope you can see why. I loved making it, I love the fabrics they feel like silk. When the entries are posted on PINTEREST, I will put a link to it and I ask you to please go and vote for the item you like the best, not necessarily mine. OK enough chat…pictures….

Title of Quilt, I changed the thread colour here to lime green as I wanted it to kind of ‘jump’ off the page at you…

Close up of other side of quilt showing the rows and rows of straight ? line quilting, I did them using the width of my foot on my machine.

Angela Walters Challenge 012

This shows the quilting a little lower than the picture above, I did a bit of fancy quilting round one of the circles – for fun…

Angela Walters Challenge 013

…lower still, right to the bottom this time, more circles echoing my theme – round the square…

Angela Walters Challenge 014

Close up of a couple of the blocks in the line running down the quilt, basically just showing the quilting I did on it..can you tell I love quilting???

Angela Walters Challenge 015

The back of the Quilt, warts and all, I had a few mishaps with this, the backing had slipped as I was quilting and I didn’t notice until it was too late – there was NO WAY I was going to undo all those stitches, so what you see is what I did….As this is for me I left it had it been for someone else, I would I promise have sat and unpicked every stitch – and cried at every one of them!!!

Angela Walters Challenge 016

The yellow thread I used really shines on the back, I tried a green one on the front but the yellow suited it better until I got to the title circle, this is showing more of the quilting I have learned since doing the last years classes with SewCalGal FMQ group…

Angela Walters Challenge 017

Big green circle again…

Angela Walters Challenge 018

Back view of the ‘arrow’

Angela Walters Challenge 019

So there we are, one more finished quilt, and done in record time as it had to be done for entry to the competition challenge by 6 JUNE…..Just about made it folks. I now love lime green.

My machine

I am posting a picture here of my beloved machine on which I made this Quilt, lots of people think I have a long-arm machine – I wish!!!! No, this is my machine, and I love it.
