i made this 24″X32″ quilt for project quilting’s off-season pantone color challenge. i used a gingham charm pack that my husband recently bought for me, and some grey solid left over from “my favorite block quilt-a-long.” the white is some additional scraps left over from the two-color project quilting challenge…i think it used to be a tablecloth. i backed it with some very soft green floral fabric – not cotton, but silky soft almost voile-type stuff that i’m pretty sure used to be a tablecloth of some sort. i got some practice on my free-motion quilting techniques on the grey squares. i named it “picnic basket,” because it makes me want to go outside and have a picnic! (must be the gingham.)
my name’s erin, and i live and create in central PA! you can check out my blog at www.fallergirl.com
Quilter: Janie Kemp
Star of Bethlehem
Wall hanging WIP, about 30″ square.
Well, as you can see, I didn’t get finished, but what a great learning experience and lots of joy! Why didn’t I finish? Life called and I answered, just like that!
I’m using machine quilting and am still a beginner. I drew the large flower on the center section of the star before sewing it. Now on the surrounding yellow sections I am doing a little meandering and in the orange sections I am trying a stem with multiple leaves up each side. Leah Day calls it Mario Vine, but I call mine Wonky Mario Vine, even so, I’m happy with it.
To finish I would like to quilt a vine and leaves on the white border and finish with a narrow orange binding. Will post a pic later.
Made by me, Janie, in College Station, TX.

Sticks of Pantone
Using an awesome black/white/grey geometric printed fabric I added ‘sticks’ of the pantone colors – tender Shoots, African Violet and Nectarine.
Straight line quilting following the random ‘sticks’ of color add to the effect.
The end effect is simple but dramatic.
Approximate Size: 24″ x 36″

Since we’re back from the Outer Banks I was able to use the special drawing hat again. Everyone who finished a quilt per the guidelines was entered into the drawing.The big girls are at school today so baby Pip got to draw the winner again.
And she chose Cotton N Lace! Congrats on winning this wonderful prize!
