Challenges

Our guild Cobblestone Quilters will be celebrating its 25th anniversary at our October meeting. I agreed to head up a challenge for the anniversary. The guild's logo is a basket



and after some discussion with fellow guild members I decided to use the basket as the theme of the challenge. I didn't want the members to have to make an exact replica of the basket, but just to use the basket as a starting point for their designs. It looks like we're not going to have very many quilts, so I decided to make 2. Here is one of my entries.





When the TTT gang was in Pigeon Forge earlier this year I purchased some fabric with shirtless construction workers on it. I threatened then that I was going to use the fabric in my challenge quilt, but I didn't act on it then. Last week after finishing my first entry I decided I needed to make the joke quilt I'd said I would do. Hopefully this won't offend anyone at guild!

What a great idea - it's a riot!

That is hysterical, Corky! I always wondered what quilt makers did with those risque images. You managed to make it funny and NOT offensive. Congratulations - this one should be the winner in the 'Don't take yourself so seriously' category.

I bet every one of our little "quilter ladies" will vote for that one but swear they didn't!!
