Endeavors Challenge

In the late November or early December I joined the Endeavors. This consisted of a group of ladies who were interested in broadening their ideas and abilities in mediums of art with fabric.
Sounded interesting and definitely  a challenge.  We all suggested some topics  and the host picked  one out at random, that being "Nature".  We had 3 months to design our thoughts and finish our project.

What  with Christmas coming up and life "stuff" there was no activity on the sight.  Now with me out of sight out of mind.  So I totally forgot about it.   OUCH!  About 3 or 4 wks. ago someone posted about the project coming up.  The only thing I had done at that point was my design.  My bad,  I can't really blame anyone but my self.  I already had this years calendar.  Just did not write it down.  I'm not even go into the things that have happened up until now.  And it seems I not alone.  And like the others,  I will  have my project finish in time for the next challenge.   Not through circumstances I can  help that is.

Okay, here we go.  My design basics.

First choice of base fabric

Back ground I went with.  Sorry, it's snowing now so no sharp colors.
This will depict the four seasons starting with winter on top and finishing with fall on the bottom
Nature was such a broad theme.  I figured this covered a nice chunk of it.

 There will be a lot of small piecing

This is some of the fabric picked out so far

I'm fairly pleased with what is done so far.  But but totally frustrated I could not finish on time.
I'm think of entering this in the fair if it finishes well.   

  Hooray, the parts are in for my quilter here and will be put on tomorrow.  Maybe the drama is over.
When the time comes I will be quilting free style on my domestic.

There are some very pretty and interesting work being shared.

Hugs and blessings being sent your way.

  13. Oh, what a fun project and I simply love how you incorporated all four seasons.

    Hugs to you!

  14. You got a great start on the project, at least it's not just on paper anymore. It's a very fun design and you did a great job of capturing the theme. Sometimes you just have to appreciate the journey and realize that the deadlines are just for motivation, not necessarily the goal.
