Two Guild Members Win Top Prizes in Project Quilting

May 22, 2010

Project Quilting, a challenge-based biweekly online quilt competition, recently ended another round of competition. When the challenge ended on Friday, Karen Kells and Ebony Love took top prizes as the winners of the public vote & judges’ vote respectively.

The challenge was to start with fifty 3″x5″ rectangles of any fabric, paired with no more than two 1/2 yard cuts of other fabric, to create a finished quilt in 7 days.

Karen took a creative spin on the challenge and combined her love of quilting and scrapbooking to create this fabulous quilted scrapbook, complete with family pictures:

Ebony dared herself to cut into some cherished pieces of Thai silk taffeta, try 5 new techniques (including overcasting the edges instead of traditional binding), and came up with this lovely asymmetrical wall hanging:

Both Karen & Ebony will each receive up to 2 yards of fabric from Etsy seller FabricFascination, and a $10 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop.

Congratulations to them both!
