"Out of the Box" Challenge

The challenge for the Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild's 2010 exhibit was "Out of the Box". Guild members were asked to make a quilt (less than 36" in any direction) in any shape quilt other than the traditional square or rectangle. My entry turned out a little more rectangular than I had hoped, but it certainly was a leap out of my box. I used all of my own hand dyed fabrics, free pieced curves in the style of Ricky Tims' Caveman Quilt's and then I "quilted it to death". The whole project was a real stretch for me, but it was fun to step "Out of the Box"!

I love it, and good for you for taking the challenge. I find it very difficult to do something so different, in fact I haven't in quite a while.

This is different for you ! But I love it too , what happened to the dandelions you was going to do ? Or is that a different project?

I love that you did something so successfully out of the box. It looks great and the quilting enhances it.
