Last Thursday the Charlotte Modern Quilt Guild held it's first holiday party and Kona Challenge Reveal!
It was truly amazing to see what everyone made with just a little charm square pack of solids. They are starting to add them to the flickr group, you should check out some of the amazing projects.
I used my new drunkards path template to challenge myself with curves and did quite a bit of free motion quilting (for me, anyway!). We were allowed to use one extra color and I chose Kona Charcoal.
The curves really got fast and easy after I did a few. I did not use pins. I avoid pins any time I possibly can. I probably should have done straight line quilting on the charcoal part. I guess echo quilting around curves and straight lines is not my forte.
I kind of like the back better! Now I have no idea what to do with this little mini quilt.
Am I the only one that takes 200 pictures of my kids for the holiday cards and finally gets one decent one:
and 199 that are some bad variation of this:
