Marsha's Log: Challenge Project Fixed Up
May 2, 2017 3:29pm CST
I had the idea to put yo-yo's with a button in the center over my seams that didn't match up. I had taken along what I had left of the green and orange fabrics to make the yo-yo's. I got out 5 buttons from the basket of buttons from my hubby's mother. It so happened that one of the ladies in the guild was having a yard sale on Friday afternoon and evening. Most of us at the quilt retreat loaded in to cars and headed over. I spent a whole $3. I bought a bag of candy squares for $1, 2 placemats for 25 cents, a piece of black fabric for 25 cents and a piece of fabric that is black with tiny white dots for 50 cents, and then a bag that had little yo-yo's, packages of buttons and other misc items for $1. It so happened that the black was more then enough for me to completely remake the binding on my project, as well as make the yo-yo's in the black. It also so happened that the green buttons were in the $1 bag. I think the black with the green buttons looks so much better than my original plan! I'm really happy with it now, but I can't put it up for sale for another year?? We have been asked to hold on to our challenges to have them put up in our own section at the Wichita Regional Quilt show in June of 2018.

It's 24x24. In June of this year our guild is taking a bus trip to the quilt show in Kansas City. I've never been to any except the local one that my guild put together so I can't wait to go to a big one! My bus and entry into the quilt show is paid for. Now I'm saving what I can to spend with the vendors.
