Here is what I do when I have two or three challenge fabric pieces to work with. I use the first piece to cut the largest chunks for my blocks, then I used the second piece for the next largest, etc. Then after the blocks I need to get done are finished (in this case three), I have scraps that I can use to make one more! I have finished four challenge blocks for the Council Quilt Show next year. I am getting ready to mail them in and be done with it. I suppose I should include payment for the blocks, even though I did not request them. Here we go:
|This is the challenge fabric for 2016|
|I had this cross-section of tree trunks fabric in my stash|
and decided it went well for a simple woodsy pinwheel block.
|This boot block is my new favorite, and decided I could adapt|
it to the "Into the Woods" theme.
|I saw the play "Into The Woods" years ago at BSU. I remember|
it had Rapunzel in it and Megan Tucker, but I don't remember much else.
So here is my Rapunzel block.
|I seem to be queen of wonky houses, so I decided to use the scraps|
to do a wonky cabin block. I could find no Fairy Tale subjects in
my stash, so I decided on the Tin Man and his cabin in the woods.
