First a warm welcome to Sue ,who has just joined us... and the world of blogging (www.mumasu.blogspot.com ), hopefully she will get just as involved and addicted as the rest of us xx lol
I love swaps, and I like challenges.Congleton quilt group (Beartown) have a quilt show every 2-3 years where members work is displayed... and I always enter my work in that .... HOWEVER .... I am not an enterer of competitions. I think it is wonderful that other people do, and I love to see their designs, interpretation of themes and their ingenuity... not for me though.
SO last year when the Quilters Guild announced a swap/competition I thought NO......
Then I thought about it and thought ... why not?
SO I had a go. It was........to send fabric in, this was then swapped with German quilters, the fabric that came back was to be made into a wall hanging measuring 32 x 16 inches.
THIS was my entry (we were NOT to post about it, or share pictures until the "winners" were announced.. )
I really enjoyed making it
and of course it was mainly GREEN!
with LOTS of embellishments
I was not selected to be part of the 30 (out of 79 entries) that will go on display
BUT I don't mind ... because in my mind (and WHAT a place that is!!!) it is a winner .. and I LOVE having it on my wall xx
