The Brown Sugar Stitchers Quilt Guild issued a challenge in conjunction with its quilt show in 2005. The fabric was called “Soul Sister.” I created I Am A Star as a result of that challenge.
The annual Fabric is Better Than Food Brunch, held at my home each Christmas, usually includes a challenge. Last year it was red hat fabric. I created Forever Young as a result of that fabric. The year before that it was a geometric gold, red and green print that produced Japanese Butterflies.
I would have never chosen any of these fabrics on my own, but it was fun trying to rise to the challenge.
