This year’s Modern Mini Quilt Challenge at Ellison Lane asks participants to try something new. Well, as a new quilter, just about everything is new to me.


I thought I’d give raw edge applique a try.  And quilting a “something” instead of a pattern or shapes.

So I’m down to the wire with this post and the entry deadline, but I think I’ll just squeeze in!


My husband is a life-long fan of VW’s, and he critiqued each sketch I made as I was getting ready. Since this will hang somewhere in the house, I finally downloaded a picture of a bus (his preferred vintage), and sketched a design from that.  The back is a rich red batik.
