I believe it was during the July 2021 Build A Quilt meeting that Angela announced a creative challenge. These were the rules and the prizes. Even though participating in this challenge meant deviating from My Quilty Bucket projects and my BOMs, I decided to go for it.
The Oops Kit consisted of 5.5″ x 42″ strips of each of the nine fabrics in the color way. Here it is cut up w/the my additional 1 yard of fabric; three 12″ x wof strips of contrasting colors. That marigold w/the flowers was going to be my binding for the Build A Quilt quilt. I’ll either have to use something else or take a trip to Quilters Station in Lee’s Summit. It’s only 30 minutes from me.
This block was my prototype, though it was made with just 3 fabrics. I think it will be a lovely patriotic table topper.
And this is my finished quilt. It measures 36″ square.
Imagine how excited I was to get this message in my inbox!
Needless to say, I’m one happy camper!
Thanks for stopping by. Until next time, God Bless and Happy Stitchin’!
