Sew Sunday | Arts Walk | OMG Challenge

The South Sound Modern Quilt Guild once again represented during the Arts Walk this weekend in Olympia, WA.   The challenge was to create an improv quilt that was at least 20" x  20" using the fat quarter of fabric in one of 3 colorways.  

Our quilts hung with pride at Canvas Works for all to see.   Those who visited the display were encouraged to chose their favorite quilt.  The winner will get a prize, but I can't remember what the prize is.  I don't even know if we were told what it is.  Winning obviously isn't my goal, and if you saw the "competition" you would know why.  We have some seriously talented and professional quilters.   I just like the challenge.

Here is my quilt.  I wish I would have called it wonky hashtag, because that is what I thought of when I saw it hanging at canvas works and the clerk asked me which quilt was mine.   Instead I named it wonky tic-tac-toe.   My plan is to donate it a foster child or other child in need.

This quilt was my One Monthly Goal for April, and I am happy to say I finished!  When I get the quilt back I may add some more quilting to the yellow areas of my quilt. Then again, I may call it good.  

Check out the South Sound Modern Quilt Guild blog tomorrow to see more of the quilts on display at the show.

Pretty cool, hashtag or no! (TicTacToe will never go out of style!) What a great challenge, I love the use of ombres.

That's a great finish, Heather. How lovely to see it hanging somewhere, and to know that afterward, it has a good life ahead making a child happy.

Congrats on a very dramatic finish. That yellow really complements the gray and black.
