Bee Same Fabric Challenge

Our Bee has really challenged us this year.  Yesterday we saw the Brown Bag Challenge and today is the Same Fabric Challenge.  I think next year we may need scale back the challenges a bit… 😉

Same Fabric Challenge

With the Same Fabric Challenge everyone in the Bee who wanted to participate got a yard of the same fabric in January and we all used it in some form or fashion.  The fabric we all got is this pretty Batik:


I decided to use it in my Desert Sky quilt.

This is a Judy Neimeyer pattern.  So I’ve been working on lots of points and curves over the last month or so!

Desert-Sky-First-Few-blocksCurvesThe pattern layout for the blocks didn’t seem to work for me.  It took several days on the design wall!

Playing-with-LayoutLayout-2nd-tryFinally came up with something balanced and not quite so WILD!

Desert-Sky-Completed-Quilt-I’m actually loving how this turned out and can’t wait to have it quilted!

I bet you’d like to see what some of the other Bee gals came up with.

Here Suz used her fabric as a doo rag!

DaveneThat was just some of what all these talented ladies came up with. Next year we are talking about a block exchange challenge – not sure of the details but I know for sure that it will be fun and challenging!
