What is Project Quilting Challenge? It's all explained here on Kim site Persimon Dreams. It's like project runway with new challenges posted every other week and you have only one week to come up with your idea and complete the project of your choice. It's is fun to try new thing and be inspired. This is the first time I have participated. This is season 4 of the challenge. You can join at any time and if you can't complete a project for every challenge that's not a problem either. Hop on over and check it out. I would love if you played along with us. It so much fun and you end up with completed projects you might not have other wise got around to doing. There are some very creative quilted projects being made by all, so go have a look at them. You will be inspired!! The first challenge for season 4 was a square, in a square, in a square. You could interpret this anyway you liked as long as you started and completed your project during that week. When I first hear of the challenge of course the first thing that came to mind was a traditional square in a square. But I wanted to try something new, so I looked through my fabric for some inspiration and came across a few pieces my daughter had bought me many years ago. I never really knew what I was gonna do with them because they really didn't go with any thing else in my stash but looking at the bright colors separated by the black background made me think of a pic I had recently seen of some brilliant spiraling stained glass windows of a cathedral. Ah ha windows are square and panes are sometimes square. I thought maybe I could just try to recreate this using fabric for my project. Now, I'm no artist but I gave it a shot and this is what I came up with. We had to name our projects so I thought I'd call mine "Things aren't always the way they appear" Because looking at the windows from below the weren't square at all, but in fact they are. I learned a few things while making this, so it was well worth the effort.Sorry that my pictures were taken at night but that when I get to do most of my sewing. I'll try to update with better pictures soon. The other thing this challenge inspired me to do was take every thing out of my sewing room and reorganize it. It didn't take me long to see the way I had it set up was not working well for me, but I love the arrangement now. I'll share pics of my space once I finish getting it all put back together.
