Monaluna Meadow Challenge Reveal

Back in October, we were lucky enough to get our hands on some advance yardage of Monaluna's latest organic fabric collection Meadow for our Challenge Yourself guild challenge.  Jennifer (AKA Monaluna) was kind enough to donate enough fabric for each of our members to get a lovely bundle of her fabrics.  The challenge was to Challenge Yourself and choose something that you have always wanted to do by picking a project outside your comfort zone or on your bucket list.  It was so fun to see what everyone came up with and even more fun to hear about their personal challenge.

Carrie challenged herself to try reverse appliqué and to finish on time!

Chris challenged herself to try some Free Motion Quilting…

…with a solid back to show off the quilting.

Debra experimented with appliqué on some pillows.

Elise did a scrappy quilt top and used green!

Erin challenged herself to try a maple leaf pattern.

Jan's challenge was to use white to make a whirley gig quilt.

Karen C. challenged herself to "put a bird on it".

Kristin L. decided to not use a rotary cutter for one side of her quilt...

…and used up the scraps and some stash on the other side. 

Kristin S. gave herself a Hudson Bay Blanket challenge.

I (Lisa) wanted to make an all organic St. Louis 16 Patch ...

…and ended up with an all Monaluna quilt, using at least one print from each of her collections.

Maria's challenge was to try machine appliqué.

Mary took a Clam Shell challenge.

Nikol using a wedge ruler that she purchased long ago and hadn't used yet.

Rozina's challenge was using solids and trying needle turned appliqué.

Sharon challenged herself to do some appliqué with a drunkard's path.

Tracy tried getting away from her usual dark pallet and used white.

I hear that there are still some quilts out there in process and am looking forward to what else our members come up with.  You can see them if you stop in for one of our meetings and/or check our flickr page .  You can also check out the hashtag #monalunameadow on Instagram.
