Carol's Challenge Project

I really loved the colors in the challenge fabric and hated to cut it up. I just cut it into strips and started sewing. I ended up not being very creative.
I pulled some fabrics (oops.. had the challenge fabric wrong side out)
the first square.. then I sat and wondered, 'well now what?'
decided to make 4 of these.. thought I'd make a pillow, but in the end, I didn't want it to be a pillow. I think after Christmas I will work with it more and probably do a Gwen Marston style medallion something. I have her medallion book and have been gazing at it for inspiration. I am excited and can hardly wait 'til I have time to continue working with this! I love the soft brownish/pinkish colors! -Carol E.

I'm a scrap quilter at heart so your block 'speaks' to me. I was looking at it and thinking "that would be a perfect centerpiece" before I read that you were thinking the same thing...its very homey and warm and has so much movement. I love it, great job!

This turned out lovely, Shelia! I made 144 - 6" square just like this, I want to put them together to make a large quilt. I'm just not sure if I want to outline each square with black or what....
