Quilt With Us

Here is my guild challenge quilt for 2011.  We are the Happy Quilters of Laurens County (Georgia).  Each of us was given a packet of the same fabrics; we had to use every one of them, and we could add as many as we wanted.  And here's a link to see the others if you would like: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.3108366357933.157540.15275...

My personal challenge was to include as many techniques as possible that I had never done before.  I created the design myself, as well as most of the appliques (the cat is from McCall's Stairway to Cat Heaven).   I included mitered borders, embroidery, blanket stitching around the appliques, and buttons.  The spider button and the one on the pitcher are handmade buttons my DD brought me from an open air market in Austria.  The quilt is called "Morning, Sunshine!"

What a great idea to get your creative juices flowing.  You did a terrific job on yours.  You must have almost drowned in your creative juices as yoy added new ideas and came up with this beauty.  And I have to agree, I like yours the best.

Joana...I would vote for yours!  What a lovely wall hanging you have designed.  I think the entire guild did a wonderful job on this challenge.
