This quilt was a challenge for me. It started with the stack of fabrics below, and from there we had to choose 6 or so fabrics from the stack for each block. I wanted to make the Supernova quilt, not only because it's gorgeous, but because it would push me to work with fabrics from several collections. I tend to gravitate toward using fabric from all one collection, so I forced myself to branch out with this quilt.
Lee's color gradation suggestions. Again, another challenge.... but it was quite fun and I loved playing with the different fabric combinations.
This is the center block of the quilt. One of my favorites.
My second favorite block.
I've got my form for the show all filled out, but I am stalling turning it in. I've never done this before, so I'm wondering what their reaction will be. By no means would I ever expect to win anything. There are definitely mistakes in this quilt. I would just like to see if I can get one of my quilts to hang at a show, so I can take my family down and show them. Plus, this is a traditional show, so maybe I can shake it up a little with a "wild" quilt like this one. Wish me luck! I don't think I find out until May sometime, but I'll be sure to let you know what happens either way. Will you try to enter a quilt in a show sometime?Pin It
