Just finished this quilt for a "Wicked" quilt challenge put on by Cherrywood Fabrics. There will be 26 quilts chosen to travel the country and also hang at the Gerschwin Theatre in NYC. Here's hoping! This quilt is called "A Palace of a Different Color" and is about Elphaba being sick to death of her world of green and black so she casts a spell on the castle walls changing…Continue
yesterday I browsed the photos of quilts. there were so many with no comments on them. We all need to encourage everyone by at least letting each other know, we saw your effort and you get at least an E for effort. a like takes very little time.

Rogue - The County Fair theme is "Ahoy, There" -- I guess, because Port Townsend, the county seat, is a Victorian Seaport. The booth showcases these challenge quilts, which will all go to Hospice after the fair is over, and it is one of our opportunities to sell tickets for our raffle quilt, which is also on display.

I took some vintage illustrations and traced them and added borders and spines for feathers. I then printed it out on tabloid sized paper and taped them together.
