“Strip-tease”

..... is the theme of this year's quilt challenge, the operative word being "Strip"!!! Every year, for the past 12 years or so, Singapore's quilters come together for a challenge. It's a low key affair with a little exhibition and a luncheon where everybody gets to vote. The rules this year are that at least 75 % of the quilts had to be made with strips no wider than 2 1/2 inches.

This is what I made!





It's a Chinese Lantern, in case you are not sure, and not a Christmas bauble nor a tree  ;).

The fabrics I've used are all from my stash.  It is imperative that I make a dent into said stash as lately I've been buying fabric again like no body's business.  But that's another story altogether.

And now back to stitching. I've decided to make both my mum and my mother in law a quilt for Christmas. One top is done, now on to the next. I'll show you next week.

And here's something I came across today; nothing to do with quilting, but really interesting. Check it out!


Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

Cheers

What should it be called?

Here's the finished quilt for the "ALQS 6". It measures  19,5 by 22 inches and is quilted heavily with various embroidery cottons.

how do you make gifs


The only thing left to do now is to find a name for it? Somehow it reminds me of the view from an airplane when flying over agricultural fields. Maybe I'll call it "A Bird's Eye View". Any better ideas?

I hope you are having a good weekend.
