At our ranch retreat, we presented the quilts from our Second Annual Quilt Challenge. Last
April, a couple of intrepid fabric shoppers selected two different fabrics, and our challenge was to make something -- anything -- using some of each fabric.
Once again, I decided to make a quilt commemorating an aspect of the retreat that is meaningful to me. I thought about how we all get talking while we sew, and how we discuss all sorts of things -- our hopes, our dreams, our families, our failures, our marriages, our kids ... we can cover a lot of pretty personal territory.
So, my challenge quilt commemorated one of the intimate issues that absorbed us during the April '08 retreat:
"Over or Under."
(And don't tell me that at some time or another you haven't discussed this burning issue with someone...)
You can see a slideshow (once again, courtesy of Angie) of all of the challenge quilts here. There is a wonderful assortment!
