Challenge

Every year we (the members of the Thumbstall Quilt Guild) are challenged to make a mini quilt.  We are given a theme and specific instructions on such things as size, technique and/or colors.  “Do Not Touch the Quilts” is the theme for this year’s challenge and it must be 11″ x 11″ or smaller.  We are able to use the technique or fabric of our choice.

These small quilts will be used at our biennial quilt show as a reminder  not to handle the quilts. It’s such a temptation to pick up the corner of the quilt in order to see the quilting detail.  I’ve found myself putting my hands in my pockets, or walking with my hands behind my back while at a quilt show so not to take a quick peek.

My quilt, Please Keep Your ‘Paws’ off the Quilts, is just about finished.

Do not touch the quilts

I only have to attach the binding.  I am definitely going use the Binding Thingy to make those ‘perfect’ mitered corners.  What a great tool.

At our annual picnic  this month the membership will vote on their favorite quilts.  First, 2nd and 3rd place ribbons  will be awarded.

There’s always time to quilt!
