Sisters Quilt Block Contest

The Sisters Quilt Show has a block contest every year. They send you some fabrics and you make a block. You can only use the fabrics they supply. Here are the fabrics they sent.


Since I just took the 19th Century applique class with Gwen Marston, I decided to cut out some paper and design an applique.


Here's what I'll be sending off today. I don't expect to win, but I had fun!

It's wonderful! I love what you see when you look at fabric- you see things so differently than I do. That's why I love blogging, getting to see other people's creative genius.

Clare said...

It's great. I was going to say I love your fabric choice, but you didn't have much option LOL!

You did a GREAT job! When I saw the fabrics, I thought "oh dear, that will be hard". But your block turned out so cool!

Alexis said...

Nice work! It looks like you choose the fabrics just for this block!

Taryn said...

I would vote for yours as a winner! I love combining traditional patterns with today's contemporary fabrics. After all, isn't that what the quilters in the 19th century were using...their contemporary fabrics??

dibs on your scraps! i think it is interesting that we tend to think in terms of what we are working on. i was those prints and thought applique, they would work well into pieced blocks too. cw
