12 x 12 Water Challenge

 
My mother and I have been considering joining a 12 x 12 group that has been recently formed by our local guild.  We missed out on the first group and are now on a waiting list for next year.  However we have both had self doubts as to whether we could work to a theme. Recently at a local quilt group meeting I challenged her to make a 12 x 12 quilt with the theme of Water so that we could practice.  Another quilt club member decided to join us in this challenge.  They are both still working on their pieces.

I spend a lot of my 15 minutes play time constructing 12 x 12 and 4" square blocks from my scraps which are now waiting to be used in other projects.  The background to this quilt was one of  these blocks.  I hand appliqued all the pieces on - some of which were fussy cut from other pieces of fabric.  The shiny pieces are meant to be jelly fish floating in the water.

Once they have completed their small quilts I am going to suggest we carry on with two other small quilts with them each providing a theme.  I am keen to continue using my made fabric pieces for these challenges but will wait and see what topics they come up with.

Love it! I think the 15 minute play time is a great idea too : ).
Hi, Maree.Love the colors in your piece and the choice of fabrics. The scrappy block as a background is perfect.
best, nadia
