Fabric designer, Tula Pink, is a member of the guild--she is everything you would want in a designer--modern, sweet, fun...and also generous in so many ways.
At our February meeting, thanks to Tula and Moda Fabrics, 36 charm packs of her latest line, Plume, were given to members interested in a quilting challenge...oh yes, please and thank you:)
The guidelines were posted:
- use only one HALF YARD of additional fabric for the top (any fabric of your choosing, does not have to be Plume)
You do not need to use all of the charm pack pieces or an entire half yard. That's just the maximum you get for the quilt top.
- any fabric for the back and binding
- bring it to the April meeting
Not a competition, just a fun challenge. It will be great to see what everyone will come up with!
And it was great to see what everyone came up with. I would say mine was kind of basic next to some of the others, but I like the results and I'm now using it for a table runner.
If I find pics of the challenge quilts, I'll be sure to add the link here so you can enjoy them too!
