Last night I finished stitching a label on my Architecture Challenge quilt so that I can drop it off for my local guild quilt show and realized that I hadn't posted the finish here . . .
It is also a finish for my guild's Show Challenge. The theme is A Cottage in the Country and we had 5 charm squares that we had to include in the quilt:
I have to thank Julie Sefton who blogs as Quiltdivajulie for her great Barn Quilt that was the inspiration for the free piecing of the cabin and the made fabric sky. The hexies were hand pieced then basted to the quilt top and then I layered the quilt and stitched around the outside of the hexies and the centers of the larger ones to quilt as you go! The rest was a combination of walking foot and free motion quilting.
Here's a closer shot of the "architecture" part:
I also finished my Color Challenge quilt this summer. Here's a picture of it in my daylily garden from earlier this summer:
This one is going in the Modern Quilt section of the show.
