Flowers in the Cathedral

I just got back from my LQS - The Needle and I Quilt Shop where I was picking up my entry from their annual quilt challenge.  In keeping with their third anniversary, it was a 3D challenge.  We were given a challenge fabric that had to appear in the quilt top, and there had to be 3D elements in the quilt.

I decided to do some faux cathedral window blocks, with 3D flowers in the centre, and a piped binding.


Of course, I then proceeded to quilt the c#%$# out of it, quilt it densely, as usual!

There was viewer's choice voting, and my little Flowers in the Cathedral placed second - so I was also picking up my prize - doesn't this look fun?
a book, charm pack, two spools of thread and a gift certificate which I've already spent :)

There were some wonderful entries, check out the other winners here.

In other news this week, I received my copy of The Canadian Quilter newsletter, put out quarterly by the Canadian Quilters' Association (CQA).  I was expecting to see my Flowers for Cynthia quilt in the National Juried Show program, I just wasn't expecting to see it in the newsletter, not just once, but twice!  That was a really nice surprise!


Happy quilting!
