This week I'm going to be winding up with our spring challenge, but it isn't just going to be about binding it off. I'm going to add a whole new element. It is up to you as to whether you do too. We've been working with warm colors thus far, so let's throw in some cool colors and see how it all works out.
For my challenge, I decided to go with the page size using the light background I had auditioned my ideas on. I love this fabric - it creates ideas in itself!
Did you begin stitching your warm colors this past week? I'd love to see what you did! My email details if you need them were posted in the last challenge page.
So last week I set you a task of collecting 'warm' materials to make your challenge project as well as a neutral for the background which could be pieced together if you wanted. (Review last week's post). You also needed to come up with a plan or two of ideas for what you wanted to create.
It's been a while since I did a blog challenge so over the next few weeks I've put together a challenge for you and my students in "Getting Started with Quilt Art" for a bit of extra fun. I hope you'll all join in!
It's been a very hectic week with visitors and a wedding to attend so both Emma and I had little time to work on our challenge pieces but we did manage to progress. Emma used free-motion stitching to attach her applique. She started with the balloons...
This week is all about getting the piece to come together - plans and ideas plus materials and a whole lot of fun! Here is Emma to describe what she did. I'll fill you in on my progress on the next page.... Over to Emma!
If you missed reading about Emma's challenge, you can do so on the previous page.
This week we need to think about what we will create using our selected words and then collect all the materials to make it. I'll hand you over to Emma to explain her thoughts and show you the materials she'll be working with.
It's time for the first week of the challenge. If you missed the rules for our March Challenge you can find them here: Rules for this challenge.
