Congratulations Jill! Well done and well deserved!
In fact, I think the PMQG put together a lot of great quilts for the challenge.
Here is my quilt. It's about 72 x 88.
I really enjoyed the process of making this quilt, even if I don't love everything about the final outcome.
I really wanted a certain range of blues, and to get that I pulled probably every bold of solid blue fabric at Joann's, regardless of what the fabric was made of.
To make the arrow shapes, I used an overhead projector to trace the shapes onto pieces of fabric.
This is where I'm glad my building has a meeting room, because there is no way I would have been able to do this in my narrow apartment!
I quilted it very simply. I appliqued all the arrows on as part of the quilting process, which worked out pretty well. I used wonder under for the shiny fabrics, but I sort of wish I had used it for all of them because some of the cotton fabrics, especially the large pieces got some tucking going on with the quilting. If I were going to do a project like this again, I would definitely use fusible or interfacing for all the applique pieces.
For my first applique quilt, I think it turned out okay.
Taking pictures of the quilt was pretty fun, and this time I made sure to take a photo of everyone who helped me hold it up.
