Quilt Challenge 2014

Last year while shopping at a local quilt store, I came across two honey buns in a clearance bin for $10 each.  My first thought was what would I do with this?!?!  Then I got the idea of having a quilt competition with my Grandmother.  So game on.  Here is what we game up with from our honey buns last year.  I love the embroidery my Gram did in the center of her quilt.  Sorry this image is bad ... it's hard to see the details.  

Well this year we are back at it again!  This time around we are using a Birds and Berry charm pack by Lauren & Jessi Jung with some coordinating fat quarters.  

There aren't that many rules in this competition, it just has to be a baby quilt at minimum.  The rest is up to us to get creative.  I have some ideas so far, but I haven't settled on anything yet.  Anyone have any ideas???  The plan is to get started over vacation next week but, there is so much pressure I cannot bring myself to start cutting.  I am at a standstill.  Hopefully more of you out there are having a much more productive week!

Sew long for now, 


  1. What an awesome thing to do with your grandma!

  2. What a fabulous idea...reading this made me miss my granny! Fifteen years on, I am still using up some of her sewing supplies!!

  3. I love that you are doing a competition (for fun) with your grandmother. I love what you did with the honey buns. I think you should just take a quilt look at some charm quilts on pinterest and see if an idea grabs you then run with it.

  4. What a great way to sew with family members! Your quilts came out great.
