Project Quilting is a series of challenges hosted by Persimon Dreams that requires a project to be made with your interpretation of the challenge rule. Read all about Project Quilting on Kim’s blog. This is the 14th year of this and I heard about it and decided to join in and challenge myself, especially with the quilting design side of things. I am also trying to do most if not all of the quilting on my domestic.
What was the rule?
RULE two: some shade of pink must dominate this week’s project.
How it works
You have one week (until noon the next Sunday) to meet the challenge.
- Every challenge piece must be a FINISHED project seen through from INCEPTION to COMPLETION during the challenge timeline.
- Each piece must stand alone as DONE to count toward prizes.
- Your project does not need to be a traditional quilt, but must meet at least one of these requirements: include patchwork, include appliqué, have 3 layers stitched together by hand or machine.
Hidden pink tint (project quilting 14.2)
I have simply layered backing wadding and background, pinned in place then stitched a stabilizing rectangle before quilting in the design. This was quilted on my domestic machine rather than the longarm.
Did I stick to the rule?
Pink Tint: I added a layer of bright pink fabric under the top layer of white so my small quilt is actually 4 layers. This gave the white a hint of pink instead of remaining clean white. I also used a pink thread to quilt and all the quilting was done on my domestic machine as a challenge to myself. The binding is the same bright pink fabric that is the hidden layer. I also added some extra lines of stitching to the binding in the same pink thread. Lot’s of pink!
