Challenge Fabric......Leftovers

I had some Batik Challenge fabric leftover...

It was laying on the end of the cutting table in a pile...

My Little Dog
A heartbeat at my feet
14 x 16

The batik made a great background for this P2P Journal Quilt



This is a class sample for the
Permission 2 Play class this week:

Does this mean I am officially done with my challenge?

Are you busy stitching on your challenge project?

I bet you are all done!

Bye For Now,
LuAnn

Challenge Peek...


Does this fabric look familiar?

Click Image to Enlarge:

I hope so...
It is our 2010 HVQ Batik Challenge Fabric




I thought I would give you a little sneak peek at what I have done so far on my challenge project:

As soon as I saw the fabric my thoughts immediately went to FLOWERS




It was fun fussy cutting the shapes from the yellows and pinks and oranges in this batik fabric...




Last week I put the border on...
Yes, I went and bought half a yard more of the challenge fabric for the border.


I am hoping this will go under the needle very soon.
I am feeling some pressure...
Less than 4 weeks until our BIG REVEAL.

How is your challenge project coming along?

Quilt Basting Day...


It wasn't planned, but we basted a few quilts today

Click Images to Enlarge:

Spray Basting



The Harlan Quilters created this quilt as a donation to the Women's Cancer Coalition.
It is their 2011 Raffle Quilt.
It will raise funds for Women's Cancer Programs




The day was perfect for spray basting...
No wind and warm outside.




Raffle Quilt is ready for Machine Quilting




Claudette's Baby Quilt
Basted



Kathi designing borders for her star quilt...

Kathi's Autumn Quilt
Basted



Frieda put us all to shame...
She basted 2 quilts today!

Frieda won these blocks 2 years ago at our 3 Day Retreat




Frieda also won this plaid star quilt top at our retreat!


The weather was perfect, 80+ degrees, for basting quilts outside on the patio.
The basting spray works so much better in a warmer climate.
