Quilt With Us

My guild decided this year to have a challenge as part of our quilt show that will be held at the end of September in Marshall MO.  The rules said the quilts could not be larger than 100" in diameter, they had to be a quilt block, but also quilted and bound, we had to use at least a recognizable amount of the challenge fabric and the theme was "Happiness Is..."   So I decided to use my embroidery machine to stitch out some cute quilting/sewing related sayings and use an attic windows block as my setting.  The fabric the window sashing is made out of is part of the challenge fabric.  We each only had a piece that was 4" by WOF so that didn't give a lot to work with, plus it changed color from orange to red to yellow to 2 shades of blue and then purple.  I called this "Happiness Is Quilting".  It is 18" square.  Here is a pic of it:

 I had made another one that I just wasn't totally happy with so I'm so glad that I had enough of the challenge fabric left to make a 2nd one.

Wow, you did an amazing job doing 2 quilts with the small amount of fabric you had. I love it and it's be a perfect wall hanging.

Very cute. I love the sayings - they are all right on the money. That was quite a challenge trying to use such a small strip of challenge fabric. You came up with a great idea.
