Opposites challenge quilt

Hi all,

I delivered my quilt to Sew This and That today, there is no going back now. It feels weird to put myself out there with my own design, do you get what I mean?

It is called “Opposites in my backyard”. The tags for each opposing pair are removable so it is really an interactive quilt made with children in mind.

There are ‘high/low’ owls, ‘tall/short’ flowers and ‘in/out’ chickens. One of my favourite parts of the quilt is the chicken wire (not really little finger friendly).

One of the requirements of the challenge was that the fabric had to come from their shop.  I used a fat quarter each of 2 coordinating Amy Butler prints for the border and put them in opposing corners.

Stats – size. 50cm x 65cm
techniques. fabric colouring, basic hand embroidery, piecing and quilting
fabrics. assorted cotton prints from Sew This and That

Be happy,

Oh it's lovely, Jess. All the details are very sweet. Is it for a competition? I went to the web site of Sew This and That but couldn't find anything.
