In more ways than one... but this first one is fun! I promise :]
My guild, the Wildwood Quilt Guild, likes to do a challenge every year or so. The fabric above was given to each member to use in their challenge quilt. Here's the rules:

Since it's for 2011
you must make a quilt or project using ALL of the fabric provided (it's a Fat Eighth)
you have to use 20 blocks (they don't have to be the same block (that's the 20-- part)
add in 10 other prints to the fabric provided for a total of 11 fabrics (the --11 part)
and have it ready to hang at our show in November...

So I had this idea of what I wanted to do, but didn't know exactly how I wanted to do it, and only using 11 fabrics in 20 blocks - you could say I was challenged alright!

I just recently got my fabrics to go with the challenge fabric and I'll keep you posted on that once I'm back on my feet again (Chest pains started acting up a bit, no worries - I've almost finished a book!) I'm hoping to get back to sewing later this week.

SO my question to you is - with those restrictions, what would you make?


  1. a sewing machine cover? that button fabric would be great for it. The blocks would be pretty small I guess...

  2. I would make a quilt! lol But seriously I LOVE that button fabric. Picking out 10 more fabrics would be hard well maybe not. I really couldn't tell ya what I would do until I had the fabric in hand and stroked it a couple times. Good luck and can't wait to see what you do.
