PHG Challenge Peek and a Test Block

Last week I had some late nights working on my Peaceful Hearts Quilt Guild Challenge piece for our show in November. I got it done just in time for our meeting last Saturday so I was able to participate in the Guild's Choice competition. This is a traditional guild so it didn't have much of a chance to nab the ribbon but it was fun being part of the festivities. A beautiful scrappy string quilt won the ribbon. 

I did a matchstick in all the color areas and doodle quilted in all the gray negative space. I'll try to share a full shot of this piece next week. I'm working on another piece that has to be done by Saturday and I've got an insurance audit at work so I can't make any promises but I will try!

I put together this test block for my Augusta MQG meeting. Hoping to to free up some of that improv mojo for our challenge project. This block is destined for my Kona Bright Test Block Sampler.

I have so much to share now that I have my computer back but my time is so tight with my multiple deadlines and heavier work schedule.  I am going to try to do a series of short posts so I can get caught up.

Thanks for visiting!


  1. I like your solids blocks, Gayle. I tend to believe the eye likes repeated elements, and this is a nice, little tweak on it. And short posts are just fine.

  2. It's nice to peak at what you're creating! and always fun to have a little visit with you.

  3. You're having fun in your new sewing space! :)
