Spring Blessings Art CollageHere is my quilt for Project Quilting's Challenge #6! It was made to "hang" on a piece of clothesline art. I'm taking an art class with Junelle Jacobson right now called The Art of Wild Abandonment, so when this challenge came up, all I could think about was hanging that ziggy zaggy quilt on a clothesline to air out during this gorgeous spring weather.

I actually put a tutorial up on my blog with how to make this (or better, how NOT to make it! LOL!!) mini mini quilt. For the purposes of my art, I absolutely adore it. I used Sweetwater designs Hometown fabrics and even coordinated the little skirt that I "hung" on the clothesline with it!

I may not really be cut out to do intricate mini work, since my seams weren't all matching, but again, for my purposes, I love how it came out.

Enjoy!!
This quilt and project were made in Texas.
The quilt is approx 3"x4" and the whole piece of art is 12"x12".

Zig Zagalicious

Zig ZagaliciousIt took me forever to figure out what I was going to make for this challenge. I sketched for 2 days and couldn't come up with anything I liked. Then this design popped in my head so I went with it. It's an 18" x 40" table runner. My lovely teenage daughter helped with the name...Zig Zagalicious. I currently live in north Texas but I'm ready to move!

Granny's Zig Zag- Front

Granny's Zig Zag- FrontThis is the granny square block that has been floating around the blogsphere. i thought it would look a bit more zig zaggy than it turned out, but i still like it. it is made with 2 inch squares. 
it is 9.5 inches square and was made in charlotte, nc for project quilting season 3, final challenge.

It's All in the Lines by Sharon S. in MI

This is a pillow case for the Linus Project. I used my stash to make a bright colorful companion. The challenge was a change on zigzags. When I did my first zig zag quilt top (see "Zig Zag Inspiration" in previous photo), I realized it's all about the lines - which way they go and how important it is to get them in the right order. So for this challenge, I pulled out my striped fabrics and did them in a random pattern, mismatched corners and all. I appliquéd with red zig zag stitch and top stitched in red over the pillow case trim. I'm planning to make a matching quilt.
