2009 Block Contest

012 - Copy

Well it's that time of year again.  Pretty soon this blog will be full of quilts and quilters in Central Oregon!  The Sisters Quilt Show is less than a month away.  This year's Block Contest fabrics are all shot cottons- some of my favorite solids of all!  This year's show features the Gee's Bend quilters as well as Freddy Moran and Gwen Marston, so with that in mind I knew I had to do a free pieced block.  This one was so much fun to do.  I got it done on Sunday, just in time for the Monday deadline.  I used all five fabrics and didn't add any others.  This would really be my year to win one of the block collections so I'm putting a wish out to the universe.   If you're interested in the contest for the future, check out the contest info here as well as my past blocks here and here.  I'll post photos of other entries after the show!
