The Endeavourers - Nature

Hello Dear Friends, old and new,

Thank you for visiting me today. No sewing today, although it doesn’t mean I’m not busy sewing! Just wanted to tell you about my latest project .....


While visiting the lovely Janine on her blog "The Rainbow Hare" a few months ago, I read an invitation to join a quilting group that she and a friend were forming called "The Endeavourers".

I liked the idea ..... and so, I decided to join the group.

Our first subject is “Nature” ...... boy that gives us so much choice, doesn’t it! We can make our quilt whatever size we want, using whatever method we like. The idea is that our quilts be ready for a “big reveal” on 1st February 2018.

I took the following photos a few years ago and I'm wondering if I can actually make a quilt inspired by them! I haven't had much experience with quilting .....  but I'm hoping I will be ready!

I haven’t started yet, I always find I have the best inspiration the closer the target date!!! I know .....mad! I’m thinking of paints ..... and tiny, as is my way!

If you would like to visit the other bloggers involved do have a look at "The Endeavourers" blog to see who is joining in.

In any event, do come back and visit me on 1st February to see if I've achieved! Tee hee! 




Hugs,
Barbara xxx

Do you have to finish the quilt by then or just show your start?

You Crazy Lady!! You are working on a tight schedule! Perhaps that speaks to the title of your blog, lol. I have enjoyed working on this project. I have decided that my "quilt" will actually be a 12 x 12 square so that I can stitch all 4 together at the end of the year. We'll see what direction I take THEN!
xx, Carol

Wow, Barbara, you've not given yourself much time. The inspiration photos are lovely and I'm really interested to see how you interpret them onto fabric. So, Feb 1st, it's a date!
