Hello World! My First Quilt Challenge Success!

August mqumag Challenge winnerIt is a little scarey to publish your first blog post.  I have been wanting to do this for a while, and now have taken the plunge.  I entered my very first challenge this past month, and won with the quilt block “Spinning Transparent Geese”.

Modern Quilts Unlimited Magazine  http://www.modernquilts.mqumag.com/july-block-and-quilt-challenge-winner/  and Michael Miller Fabrics are sponsoring a 12 month block challenge, “Everything Old is New Again”.  Every month there will be a new block and at the end of the 12 months, the blocks will be put together to make a quilt and then there will be a quilt challenge.   Spinning Transparent Geese is my take on the traditional flying geese quilt block.   I was really excited! You would have thought I’d won the lottery!  I have been thinking about doing a  transparency quilt, and this was a fun exercise.  I was really happy with how it turned out.

SNAILS-TRAIL The next block is “Snails Trail” shown to the right.  I have something really exciting I’ve designed for that.  Stay tuned for the next block!  I’ll post the link for voting on Sept 11th.
