Oregon Garden Quilt Challenge

on Friday i entered a quilt into a challenge at The Oregon Garden...there will be a quilt show there at the end of January.

i was giddy about the fact that on the day the quilts were due...mine was the 2nd one to be turned in and my friend's was the 3rd. seeing as there is 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, we may all place if no one else entered.

the challenge was to take Valerie Well's (Stitchin Post) fabric and use at least a fat quarter of it in the quilt. the quilt could not be over 36" x 36"

it was a challenge seeing as the fabric was a huge print and the quilt had to be small.

i used the challenge fabric as my background.

here is my quilt

in this little quilt that turned out to be 34" x 35", i used several techniques...the tummy of the kitty is reverse appliqué, i hand stitched the wording, the whiskers are a very fine wire, the strips around the kitty were made very scrappy then sliced and diced into the background fabric.

i had so much fun working on this challenge, but it WAS a challenge
