This year my quilt guild’s challenge was ‘I Heard it on Vinyl.’ What a fun quilt challenge to work on. The hardest part was choosing a song. I made this quilt for it. My song was the Garden Song, my kids listen to it over and over again on their Peter Paul and Mommy CD. (Not technically vinyl but Peter Paul and Mary are from the vinyl days so I counted it. The competition was stiff. Here are the winners.
Lorri’s amazing creation. Her song was Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds by the Beatles.
Ruth’s happy creation for Somewhere Over the Rainbow.
Diane’s makes me want to get me a pair of boots and dance. Her song was Boot Scootin’ Boogie.
I find a quilt challenge fun on two counts. One, it’s fun to play along. I find they get me thinking outside the box. I love watching where my creative juices take me. The second thing that makes quilt challenges fun is seeing where the theme took other quilters. How it inspired them to create unique and beautiful quilts. So much eye candy to enjoy.
I just thought of another bonus of quilt challenges. There are often prizes. If you are looking for this kind of fun. Be sure to join Aunt Em’s Sew Along Adventure. You could win a gift card to the Fat Quarter Shop.
