The latest assignment for my art quilt group was to create a quilt using a letter of the alphabet as inspiration. A couple of different ideas came to mind, but I finally settled on free piecing a letter M for each person in our immediate family. I enlisted the help of my four granddaughters when it came to selecting the fabrics and was I ever surprised when all of the colors they chose blended together! I honestly thought I would end up with a wild rainbow of colors to fit together in one quilt. Another surprise came when I was trying to figure out how to space eleven M's evenly in this quilt...as it turns out there will be twelve M's in our family with the birth of our sixth grandchild in August, so I was able to add another M for the new grandbaby. I guess you could say that this challenge quilt really was a family project!
