Calico County Challenge

In November, my Saturday quilt group held what has become an annual challenge. Each of us brings two fat quarters - one pretty, one "ugly." We put them into bags and draw one of each. Then we make something no more than 12" square to be revealed in February. We can only add two other fabrics.

I couldn't go to the November meeting, so Polly drew mine for me. For days, I worried over what I would make with that spool fabric and the pretty burgundy blender. Then it hit me: "a quilter's bad dream."

You probably can't see the quilting in this, but it is the best part - S swirls all around the black. The back includes larger pieces of both challenge fabrics. Can't wait to show it on Saturday!
