Cove Quilters Challenge #4

The Cove Quilters have been busy again with our 4th challenge. So far we have done Birds, Candy, Paint and now this one is Books. There are 8 of us participating. Each challenge is 12" square and we can use any techniques we wish. The idea was to encourage us to try techniques we hadn't used before but just completing it is challenge enough for me, especially this one.

My "Sew Little Time" - we were suppose to pick a favorite book, I had too many to chose from so I decided to do something quick and making up book titles from selvedges I had saved. No hand stitching on this one, it is machine pieced and quilted! I have posted photos the other members of the Cove Quilters in my Flickr Photostream. We have entered all 32 challenges in the MBQG Quilt Show. It will be great to see them all together. Our next theme is "Stars" - I already have a plan, I think it will be paper pieced. That will be a challenge for me!

It has been a busy summer and I needed to come up with something quickly as I was swamped with trying to finish hand quilting Molly's quilt (it is done!) for our Mahone Bay QG Quilt Show in a couple of weeks. Plus I had my Guild challenge to finish, company came and went several times.

My Guild challenge "Blessings" - a table runner, I used all 5 challenge fabrics and added 3 of my own. It was quick and fun to do. Another machine pieced and machine quilted project. I think it is time to get back to some hand work!
