My guild's quilt show just ended, so now I can show you the challenge quilt I made. Rules were, use your 3 initials. Pick colors that begin with the letters of your initials.
h: heather gray
That's what I chose. I used artistic license even in those, especially in my purple which was lighter than a true eggplant color should be. C'est la vie.
Then we were also to give our quilt a name, using our three initials. Mine is called Carol "Hearts" Europe. Here it is:
I really wasn't satisfied with this quilt. In fact, when I finished it I thought it was ugly. I didn't have time to re-do it, so I left it as is. I no longer think of it as ugly, but I'm still not thrilled with it. It didn't turn out like the image I had in my mind. The Eiffel Tower represents (guess what) - France! We visited Paris and had a great time. The greenish background fabric is an Eiffel Tower fabric which I purchased in Paris! The tree represents Czech Republic where we also had a great time. It's a chestnut tree.. something we saw a lot of there and enjoyed picking up the beautiful chestnuts that had fallen. Just one incident of many great memories there.
So that is that. Our quilt show ran longer than usual this year, and I missed my quilts. I am happy to have them back home.
