Art Quilt Challenge

I can't reveal the front of this wee quilt till May 15 so here's the back, a little teaser..  It's for an art quilt challenge group; the theme is "Hidden Treasures."  I struggled with it (two false starts) until I realized it was becoming a chore and I was taking it much too seriously.    So I decided on a whimsical approach and it all fell into place.  The funny shape?  It's the first page in an art quilt journal and I plan to use the same shape for all future challenges.  Somewhat limiting as it's only 10 inches square approximately and I'll need to be careful of the third dimension.  And the back must be neat and tidy.  It won't be hanging against a wall.  I'm sure to add some design to the back as it is really very boring as it is.  I won't decide how to bind it till I have a few more pages.


  1. I love the back and the shape already. But the front is great too.

  2. Hi Judy
    Well done in finishing your quilt in good time. I can't wait to see the front.
    The shape is wonderful.
