Quilt Challenge 2014... The Reveal


 Last year my grandmother and I started our annual Quilt Challenge. For 2014, we are using a charm pack of Birds & Berries by Lauren & Jessi Jung, along with 3 fat quarters of coordinating prints. Check out last year's challenge :)


This weekend was the big reveal.  We finally got to see each other's work. We keep it a secret, so it's extra exciting. Here is what my grandmother came up with, pretty awesome! Hard to tell that these two quilts use EXACTLY the same fabric!  


Gram's Version


I went with a scrappy crossroads block for mine as I absolutely loved the patten. It did a good job showing off all the patterns in the line. Then finished it off with some hand quilting. 




Now we just need to decided what next year's challenge will entail .... oh the possibilities!

  6. I think it's so fun that you and your grandmother do this. I am crazy about the color palette of this line (and the fabric you used for the back of your quilt is amazing!) ... I think there may be a fabric purchase for me in the near future!

  12. Both quilts are very very nice. And I love that you and your Grandmother have this challenge together. How fun! If my grandmother was still with us, she would really love that I was the one who continued with the quilt making that she so dearly loved. Great story.
