QJ - Brown Thing


Machine Pieced
Hand Appliqued
Machine Quilted
Hand Quilted
38-1/2" x 38-1/2"
Started - February 1997
Completed - April 1997

Pattern - #40156 - Lotus Blossom
Needleart Guild (c) 1985

Made for a local quilt shop contest -
P&B Textiles 1996/1997 -

Madders Quilt Challenge
50% of the fabric used had to be from the Madders Collection -

I had a tough time finding any that coordinated and settled for the brown and red colorway -

I redid the pattern because of the stripes and tried to brighten it up with the red and the floral fabric -

It didn't win - ;))

I never did name it -

I just always referred to it as the “Brown Thing” - ;))

Entered in a local quilt show - January 1998

QJ - 1997

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
