That's a Challenge.

Now that's a fabric that I doubt I would ever have chosen to use myself.! Yesterday at my group ( Tauranga Patchwork and Quilting ) it a was put out as the challenge fabric for members to make a quilt not larger than I metre square and using at least 25% of that fabric , along with fabrics of your own choice. So far , all I have done is put the fabric into the photo copier and have a paper sample ready to cut up and try some ideas. I will keep you posted on this one!
The above and everything else I am working on has till our Annual Exhibition in September.
I also have to make some 4 patch blocks in Country ( dull ) fabric to be part of a group quilt being made to be the 1st prize in a raffle. ( I don't have much in that type of fabric cause I like bright clear colour.)
This morning Roger dug the first of our red Kumara ( sweet potatoes ) to see if they were ready. They seem big but not a huge crop...We'll try some roasted tonight...We have friends coming over ..... She is a vegetarian...So we always try to cook something special for her ( vegetable tagine ) and cause he likes meat and doesn't get much, a roast for him and us. It usually works out quite well.
I am really disappointed that today's netball game with the Magic playing in Christchurch is not being televised......They are covering 2 other games....We want them all covered!!!! They do all the Super 14 rugby games don't they!!
Last night the Crusaders had a good win over the Brumbies!!! ( 33 - 3 ) Our guys play tonight.

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a very nice comment. I really like this bright fabric even though I would have to really think hard on how to use it. I look forward to your decision and quilt.

That is awesome fabric - but if it's too much for you why not use it in bias strips, either in whacky stained glass applique as the lead with strong dark plains between or in celtic knotwork, check out my blog - I have a picture of a quilt I made with zany fabric strips on a very sombre grey background - bet no-one else in your challenge group makes anything like that
