This years quilt guild challenge… FQ,Shape, Color

I am a member of the Pins and PIne Needles Quilt Guild based out of Whitecourt  Alberta and surrounding area.  This years Quilt guild challenge we were given a Fat Quarter, A shape, and a color we are to make a child size quilt to display at our 2018 Quilt show then donate to it the local women’s shelter.

This is the grouping of fabrics the i was able to find.






The next step in my designing process is to figure out how  I’m going to incorporate all the elements FB, Green, Circle into a child size quilt.  The next set of  pictures is my design process to show you how I started and where I ended.

This is the design that i finally came up with:


This weekend during quilt guild sewing I started cutting out the shapes for the appliqued characters… Here they are…

I will keep posting my progress as I work on this quilt. It has a deadline of March 17 2018 so it can be displayed during our quilt show.
