    Default Iron Quilter Contest - I finally finished

    Well I finally finished my quilt top for the contest about 4pm today. I don't think I can post a picture here but they should all be available for your viewing and voting pleasure soon I think.

    This quilt was difficult for me due to the time crunch and the fact that I was busy (like everyone else) sewing Christmas presents. Also, I chose a pattern, mitered borders and eventually scalloped edge all of which I've never done before. Sadly the scalloped edge is not done because I've sumitted just a top (I emailed them and they said ok).

    Anyway, it was fun to play. I can't wait to see what everyone else did with the same fabric.

    Who else played???

    You did better than I, Nancy. I ordered the charms, but had other things to do and never got around to making anything out of them. Maybe if I had liked the material more, I would have been more motivated. I have a hard time picturing what a fabric will look like in a project. I'm anxiously awaiting the photos of everyone else's projects. Maybe it will motivate me to do SOMETHING with these charms. Good luck, Nancy.

    I sent my entry in a couple weeks ago. I have sent the quilt to my nephew as a wedding present. I kinda liked the deadline. Made me go ahead and get it done and it worked out great because I had something for a wedding gift when most everything else was focused on Christmas.

    I completed my binding this morning, and I must say this was especially fun to use materials that I did not choose.

    Go to the blog and look in October for the posting about the Iron Quilter contest. Jenny did a great video to introduce it. I think it's going to be an annual event.

    My Iron Quilt is very simple. However, whatever the vote, I feel like a winner as it is done! sewn and quilted and is such a very sweet summer themed quilt. It reminds me of Michigan summers before airconditioning arrived. I have it because of the Jenny's infectious motivation. Excited to see how everyone worked out their ideas. soon now! also as we don't know how many quilters participated that too will be fun to know.

    I just re-read the original blog and only the finalists will be posted on the blog (tomorrow supposedly) for you to vote on. I hope we'll be able to see all the quilts somewhere. I think it would be so interesting to see all the different things that can be done with the same fabric.
