Dinner For Four


This quilt was made for a quilt challenge at our Log Cabin Quilters Guild of Wisconsin. Our task? Use your personal initials to create a quilt. 

The first initial was for the block itself. In my case, my first initial was "B" and I chose a version of the "Broken Dishes" quilt block, using four of those completed blocks. Hence the "Dinner For Four" title.

For the second initial "C", you had to choose a color by that name. After a Google search I found chartreuse, cherry red, and cyan. So I went to my stash to see what fabrics I might have available with those colors. I'm pretty traditional and the colors that came together were totally out of my comfort range, but the pattern lends itself to just this kind of creativity so I forged ahead.

The final letter "A" was for a technique you used on the quilt. Conveniently, I love to applique and added it to my finished piece.

It was exciting to not be tied to a pattern or color scheme! I also did some experimenting, furthering my free motion quilting experience. It was a wonderfully rewarding challenge and I love the final result. Now where am I going to hang it?
