Guild Challenge Finish

Last Friday, we had our annual guild Christmas Party. It was so nice to be able to visit and meet new quilters. I don't get to go very often to the meetings because of my job, however I try to always make to special dates.

Within the group, we have little bees and challenges. Each year a fabric is chosen which we buy and challenge ourselves to make a quilt-type project. The project is then revealed at the Christmas Party. Here is mine -- all done, finished at 60 x 60. And the back below, where I used up the orphan blocks made from the scraps HST's. Because I used a very simple pattern with large blocks -- I feather quilted all over.

It is not too late for me to link up at Sarah's "Confessions of a Fabric Addict", so I am heading over there right now.

VERY IMPORTANT -- Judy Laquidera has opened pre-orders for her new quilt book, "Sixty Pieced Quilt Borders". My Christmas present is now ordered!!!!

Oh, Jamie, it's awesome! I just love one block quilts! And the back is so cute with those little pinwheels - It just wouldn't be a quilt of yours without some pinwheels! Whoop whoop!!!

What a great quilt. I love the pieced backing and that book looks like one I should place in my quilting library.

I love this quilt. Is it your own design? The pinwheels on the back are a sweet surprise.
