“Bright Sunshiny Day”

Hello MVQ Members!

Since the response from the jelly roll challenge was so positive, are you ready for another one? I hope so! The idea for this challenge came to me while I was vacationing in Aruba over the holidays. It’s time to create something bright and sunshiny!

All the challenge details can be found on the MVQ 2021 Challenge page.

During these long cold days of winter, it is time to create something fun! It’s gonna be a bright, bright sunshiny day!

Title: Fun with Braids – Create a “Goof-Proof” Braided  Table Runner 

Presenter: Kate Colleran of Seams Like a Dream Quilt Designs in Centennial, Colorado.  https://seamslikeadream.com/

Kate says, “Learn to cut and sew my goof-proof braid method with my Braid Template while making this fun and easy table runner. Table Scraps is a great pattern for using up some of your scrap strips! The braid is a creative technique to add to your quilting toolbox. You will be amazed at how many uses it has.”

Jelly Roll Challenge

Posted on

I want to thank everyone that participated in the challenge. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did coordinating.  Every email with an entry was like getting a beautiful surprise in my inbox. So many unique and creative ways to use a Jelly Roll.  We have exceptionally talented quilters in our group. Based on the responses, I would have to say that the Jelly Roll Challenge was a success. Since we are unable to meet, this was a fun way to get members engaged.

Thank you to the judges for taking time to participate.

Special thanks to Red Barn Sewing and Yarn Center, Compass Point Quilts and Aunt Mary’s Quilting for their generous donation of a gift certificate. The winner of each category will be receiving one of these gift certificates.

Winners:

Michele Maurice – Best Use of Color

Linda Lydecker – Best Overall Design

Mary Hoag-Wilkes – Best Visual Impact

I have some ideas ‘percolating’ for another challenge this winter. Stay tuned…

Wishing everyone a Safe, Healthy, and Happy Holiday Season!
