Last Spring I signed up to do our quilt guild's challenge for 2009. I paid my few dollars and received my kit, comprising an instruction sheet and a fat quarter of the challenge fabric.
"Stargazer" is the theme for the challenge, and we are to incorporate a nine patch, or a series of nine patches, within a star of our own choosing.
We are to use a "recognizable piece of the challenge fabric and no more than five other fabrics."
It has to be at least 26"x 26", but can be as big as we care to make it.
The finished entries will be displayed at our guild meeting on 26th. February.
Which means we've had three seasons. Not months, seasons, to work on it! Guess who hasn't made one cut in her fabric yet? Yup. That'd be moi.
Is there such a thing as Quilter's Block?
If so, I think I have it!
My brain shuts down every time I think about this challenge. I can't come up with anything imaginative or creative, beyond a nine patch in a star. Duh!
Would you like to see the challenge fabric?
And the five I'm thinking of using with it?
I may change some/one/all!!of these yet. It needs something with more sparkle, don't you think? Something I'm low on at moment.
It's way past my bedtime.
Maybe I'll dream a solution.
Maybe the Ghost of Challenges Past will come to inspire me while I snooze!
Maybe the moon is made of green cheese.
