Stuff in a Bag Challenge

Remember a while back I said I was working on a project that I could not show you? We had a challenge at my guild: we each put fabric of our choice into a bag. The bags were redistributed, and when we received a bag, we had to make a small quilt and finish it. We didn't know whose fabric we were working with! Last night at guild we had the big reveal. It was amazing and so fun! Everyone made gorgeous quilts, and such a variety! This first picture is me with the quilt I made. You can't see it here, but there is white lace going around the inside of the binding.







This purple applique quilt is my favorite of the bunch. Sorry the picture is so dark.



This one is for me! In my bag I put all batiks and never imagined it would come back like this. It's really cute and quilted well for the penguin theme, too.

What fun! Those are all great quilts. You continue to show such neat pinwheels...I love it!!

My guild did a bag swap, but the swappers had to make 4 items from a gallon bag of fabric. There were alot of potholders and sewing machine covers!

What a wonderful collection of lovely quilts! How many people actually took part?? How much fabric did you have to put in the bags?
