Hmm...

It's funny how one thing leads to another and then all of a sudden you find yourself in the middle of something that maybe you wish you hadn't gotten into!  A few of my quilty friends and I were talking recently about stretching our quilting creativity and before any of us fully realized what we were getting ourselves into we had come up with a challenge...we would draw names out of a hat and then select a few fabrics outside of that quilters' comfort zone for them to make an art quilt with.  As you can see, the quilty friend who had my name took it easy on me, so I don't think I'll have much of a problem coming up with an art quilt using these fabrics.  Not everyone in the group was quite so lucky though!  Hop over to Hills Creek Quilter and see what my batik loving friend, Anya, has to work with!

I bet no swapping is allowed either, lol. I used to join in on those sorts of challenges back in the day, it was such a learning curve. I'll be looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Good luck! I used that same black/white check on the back of my challenge quilt.
