The Hoffman Challenge Deadline is eight days away! I’m within about a day of finishing quilting the borders, and then all I have to do is bind it, put a sleeve on, and label it. It’s going to be close, but I think I’m going to make it.
I thought you might like to see a little of what I’ve been up to for this quilt. The only fabric requirement is using a noticeable amount of the challenge fabric (bottom left). I ended up using the challenge fabric, and the gradient pastel stripe on the right for the entire quilt. Those two fabrics, plus fussy cutting, equalled an amazing amount of variety! The blue and purple stripe up on top is the border fabric. I used more threads than fabrics! All the gorgeous polyester threads went into hand quilting the top, and the variegated blue cotton was for the border.
Here’s one of the sixteen blocks in the quilt:
I can’t wait to show you more, probably at the beginning of August.
