QJ - Red Miniature Watercolor


QUILT JOURNAL - WAL-MART/POLY-FIL BLOCK - RED MINIATURE WATERCOLOR

Machine Pieced

Original - 12 - 1/2" square
Started - June 27, 1995
Completed - June 28, 1995

Duplicate - 15-1/2" - 14-1/2"

In June 1995 - Wal-mart/Polyfil had a Quilt Block Contest - "Back to Basics" -
To design a block using basic shapes -

I chose a square -

1" squares - 12 x 12 = 144 squares


Tuesday - 6/27/95 - I cut the squares
Wednesday - 6/28/95 - I sewed them together
Thursday - 6/29/95 - I turned in my entry at Wal-mart
Friday - 6/30/95 - Was the last day to enter the contest

I was the store winner - must have been the only entry - ;))

I also did NOT take a photo of the block before I turned it in -

So I made another one - to commemorate my win - ;))

I won a $25.00 gift certificate -

And used it to buy a 24" x 36" cutting mat -

The perfect size for my cutting table -

The duplicate won Third Place at the County Fair in August 1996

Thanks - of course that block was the one that I DIDN'T take a photo of before I gave it away - but I still have that old gray cutting mat - it's is a lot of my photos - ;))
