CIU Challenge QAL
We wanted to check in with everyone who is participating in our CIU Challenge QAL. We hope you are all having fun with the CIU blocks and challenging yourself to come up with something you love!
I've had a blast challenging myself to come up with a new design.
Here is my latest creation.
I'm making four of these HUGE blocks and sewing them together to create my end design. The border was an after thought yesterday and I love how it really sets off the block design! I did up a sample of what blocks I used from the CIU pattern and where they go to create my design.
I used the Churndash, Sawtooth, Ninepatch and Curvygeese blocks. You can see above, where they go in my design.
I'm using beautiful "Cherie" fabric from Frances Newcombe with Art Gallery Fabrics.
Sherilyn is having so much fun with the Challenge that she has started another quilt and here is her first block.
Gotta love that Flea Market Fancy!!
Remember to share your WIP's with us on our Flickr Group and also #ciuchalleng on IG.
