Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild had a needle book swap with the London (UK) Modern Quilt Guild and it was loads of fun!
This little goodie was what I made using Kerry Very Berry Handmade's tutorial:
It's a combo of Yarn Dyed in Black and some lovely Michael Miller Cotton Couture solids. I used those particular solids because it was my insurance plan in case I didn't get my VMQG Cotton Couture Challenge project completed on time. The needle book could do double duty if necessary.
But it wasn't necessary! I managed to complete my challenge project on time and I'm so very happy with it. Introducing Burst of Colour:
I love it. LOVE it! I was obviously very inspired by the colour placement that Krista Poppyprint used in her Full Circle quilt. And Berene made the brilliant suggestion to borrow Krista's Go!Baby cutter to make tumbler shapes. They give this quilt so much movement, and were a snap to piece together.
I used dark orange thread to quilt concentric circles (again with the Full Circle inspiration) and used a facing instead of a binding per Terry's tutorial. The quilt is 26" square.
While I didn't win Viewer's Choice at our meeting, I am really happy to have made this project and it will hang in my home where I'll see it every day.
