We also have an ongoing "word" challenge. This month's word was "Polka Dot". I didn't have any idea what I was going to make and decided last Friday that I just wouldn't make one this month which is OK. But I went to the Long Beach CA quilt show last weekend and was so inspired by the "12 by 12" quilts (http://www.twelveby12.org/) that I decided to go for it. This is my 25" x 18" "Polka Dot" quilt.
I hope you will go to their website and read about this creative group! After years of following them and buying their wonderful book, seeing the quilts in person was amazing! There were 2 years worth of them, 144 for each year, and I spent two hours of my 6 hours at the quilt show marveling at their diversity and techniques.
Hope you'll also check out Judy's design wall for other inspiring projects! Happy quilting!!
