A challenge for you

After the ups and downs of the past couple of weeks you might like to see some photos of the wonderful projects the Apatcheez have made. And there might be a challenge announcement somewhere in here too. Now it’s been a while since you saw photos so prepare yourself – 

Firstly Esther, who lives in Denmark, finished her version of The Edwardian House and made it sing with the bright fabric choices. Esther has a great blog too so check it out.

As you can see it has been all go here – and there are few more projects to show you but that might do for this post.

Now I did mention at the beginning that there was a challenge to be announced. So… as usual, at the end of the year we will have a Christmas party/Challenge event. This year the Secret Santa present will again be a handmade Christmas gift and the theme for the challenge is….drumroll….’Wild Thing’

Now this could be wildflowers, wild animals, wild life, wild fabric – your choice. Just make it a quilted item and have fun. Here’s some inspiration to be going on with – not so much wild as mild but it’s not easy running a multinational quilting business and looking after the ladies at classes….

Pozzie-and-Charlie-on-duty A challenge for you

Until next time happy quilting
