A Lovely Year of Finishes - October Goal

This is a challenge quilt!  Last year at the quilting retreat for my guild (read about retreat here) we played a strip game - we didn't strip, we rolled dice to exchange strips with the ladies at our table!  One of the quilters had a great idea to challenge us to create a completed quilt using only the strips we won in the game by retreat this year...which starts on November 1!!  I was lucky that I had been collecting all the white strips during the game (thank you, table mates!) so creating a quilt with only the strips collected during the game was not too difficult.  Now to quilt it with some really cool modern quilting in the negative space!!!  No pattern, just winged it!!
I am linking up Sew BitterSweet Designs again this month!  If you are like me and have a hard time getting projects finished or you need a little extra incentive to get going/finishing a project and would like to have the opportunity to win some prizes, join up with us!  No one nags you, just a lovely carrot of getting projects done AND the possibility of winning a prize...and maybe a little extra blog traffic!!!  A win all the way around!!!  So come and join us in the fun!!!!!

Oh, I like that! What a great plan. I like your "winging" it. So much beautiful canvas to paint with your quilting.

What a great Guild "game"! This quilt already looks lovely so I'm looking forward to seeing the finished and quilted result.

That is a lovely quilt top! It is so crisp and clean. Our guild also plays that strip game at bees. Good luck on meeting your goal!

What a fun game - I'm going to remember that one for us to use sometime! Love the pattern you created with this quilt.

What a great idea and love the colours, it looks very modern. What a great idea for swaps although white in our home does not do well with Treacle around and her muddy paws! No matter how much I wipe them there is always that little bit left for the white bedding!!!! Hugs, Susie x
