Lori at Cottonfields has hung the challenge quilts. Her rules were use the two pieces of fabric and birds. Look at the different ideas. They are posted on her blog Talk is Cheap Quilts. Mine is the one with the Freddy Moran chickens.
My cousins daughter is raising money for a adoption for a friend of hers. I told her I would make a quilt and she could auction it. My aunt gave me these squares several years ago and I never did anything with them. I can't decide what background to use.
I don't have any more of the orange print but I have some of the stars print. What do you think of this idea? Here the star squares blend into the background.
The other problem I have is that even with a 4" border the quilt is only 30" wide. Any ideas about how to make it wider.
The other day I found a site with a tutorial about quilting as you go QAYG. I am fascinated by the idea of making a big quilt and only quilting each square. Have you ever tried it? I did this square early in the summer but got distracted. I would love for this to be the beginning of a big quilt. Any ideas or suggestions?
