Challenge Quilt

 The floral fabric on the top is the "theme" fabric for a quilt challenge. The center darker fabric looks brown in the photo but it is actually purple. The funky green toward the left doesn't look like it belongs, but in real life it doesn't look quite so bold.
 This is all I can show you for now. I never feel confident with challenges and never really know what it will look like until the end.
 Here's Sven!! Helping me celebrate my birthday in September.
 We're at an outdoor concert. Thank goodness nothing as vigorous as climbing a mountain!!
Huey Lewis and the News was so much fun!!!

  3. I've never made a challenge quilt. That would be...er, challenging.
    Did Sven get out of control at the concert? That could be really embarrassing. : )

  4. Omg. My fabric is still in the bag. Thoughts about what I should do keep floating about in my head and that is where they seem to be firmly staying.
    Time to dig out the fabric and dig something out of my brain.

  14. Good luck with that! I've got a guild challenge that is so complicated, I'm not sure I can make something work. But they do stretch the mind!

  21. Wishing you a happy birthday Lori. Hope it's followed by a splendid year :) I very much like the challenge fabrics. I don't know what they're calling that greyish beigey purple these days. It used to be a "dusty" color but today I think it's called grurple or burple.

  22. I am not very good at challenges. I just can't seem to come up with the clever ideas so many do. Good luck.
