Challenge I've been given! The F word!

On Sunday I discovered that there was a challenge out there!  Actually it had been "out there" since April, but I wasn't a member of Stitching and Beyond then!  Anyway, me being me, thought I'd give it a go!   It has to be ready early next week! 

The challenge is - "The F Word"!

Well, after all the ......... bits went through my mind - I rummaged through all my bits and pieces in the stash - the ones I wanted are really on the floor behind the sewing machine.  I found Lisa Waltons "forest " fabric!

So here is my answer to the challenge (bindings still to be finished!


Please meet Forest Fire!  I think that meets the criteria!










Here are 2 detail photos.  I have used two threads in the needle and really played with the machine tension to get texture onto the surface (loops).  It was a big job to get the machine back to norma to sew the first of the bindings onl!





I really have has fun with this because I threw all the quilting rules out the window!  Well, I tried to!




Please let me know what you think.

Looks fantastic, Sally. I wish I could let myself go like that to make original and artier (is that a word?) quilts!

I want to come live with you so that some of this incredible creativeness can rub off on me.
