It was a fabulous opportunity for me to step out of my routine and play with some COLOR.
This picture jumps ahead in the story - my little finished wall quilt is quite happy to be on the wall of our back porch. I am enjoying it with the pillow collection in this little eclectic area that looks out on the garden flowers.
It started HERE when Kathie asked who might be interested in a challenge!
I was sent a collection of four baskets all put together 2 x 2 and with no rules - make a project!
'No rules' projects are harder than rules!
I did time box myself to finish it before we left on vacation and before the holidays.
I chose a combination of reproduction and 'modern' prints from my stash - another self imposed rule - no fabric purchases for this.
The finished project includes, pieced hourglass blocks, applique and a little embroidery.
I hand quilted it and enjoy it most evenings relaxing on the back porch.....

Thanks - it was FUN!
Have a great week!
UPDATE: I felt so bad Kathie lost her blocks I sent this quilt to her. She was so generous to share them and her fabulous sense of humor - she deserved it!! Pay it forward ;-)
