Entries are due by the 21st March.
That's just on three weeks.
First thought - use this opportunity to get rid of some old blocks:
Then I realised the challenge has to have been started this year. *pouts*
So, new tack!
Pick some fabrics and do a Dead Simple Quilt...with a few little surprises in it. That's the theory, anyway. The reality? We'll see!
Sydney Quilt Show
The date for entry of quilts for the show is 15th March - ten days!
We only need to show an example of what we're going to do - have the layout and the design, kind of thing.
Quilt 1: Symphony in Scannell Solids
Reese Scannell is the Australian-made version of Oakshott. They're not as good at marketing, but their fabric is quite lovely.
The background is Kona Stone, and it turns out to have a kind of warm beige-ish look when paired with saturated colour.
The design is going to be pretty simple in the end, lots of HSTs and a basic pattern, with the rest of the quilt a negative space:
That's the easy one. At least until it comes time to quilt it, then all that negative space needs to be filled in...
Quilt 2: Planned Improv
This one is going to get messy. As in...really messy.
I did a basic design idea, but I don't know that it's actually achievable!
But I did start some piecing last night:
These are going to be two of the 'moon' pieces, which would be set into drunkard's path blocks - although I'm not sure about the one with grey in it. It looks kind of like I've pieced a '10' unintentionally!
I might have to rethink this idea. Especially since I have only really one week in which to get a layout done - it should really be sent off before the 15th. *sigh*
That's not going to be fun...
