Fabrics N Quilts Scrap Quilt Contest 2012 – Free Form Quilt WIP Report

Fabrics N Quilts  Scrap Challenge Quilt Contest 2012

I’m so excited to be sharing you the progress I’ve made thus far on my scrap quilt contest challenge for Fabrics N Quilts.

 

 

 

Fabric Scraps organized by color

Right away I knew that I was going to use all the scraps that I sorted out earlier this year.  I’ve been using them for other quilt alongs and I’m barely making a dent in them.  I need to do something else.

I also knew right away that I wanted to use the free form technique like I did for my ‘Architectural Elements’ Project QUILTING Challenge Quilt – Barn Bones.  I love how you start with one thing in this technqiue and by the end you have a completely different looking quilt!  I can’t wait for you all to watch as my quilt grows and evolves and evolves again and evolves again…

Red ScrapsI started with my RED scraps.

Have you sort of figured out what’s going on in my mind as I create this quilt yet?

I just started my blue-green block…I have 4 main blocks to go and if you haven’t figured it out after that…I’ll tell you!

 

Have you started your quilt for the contest yet?
