I positively HATED the fabric but it was a good excuse to try out a few things that I wouldn't want to "waste" good fabric on.
In an effort to irradicate the cats, I chose a pattern that required thin strips. When I cut the strips, I actually turned the fabric sideways so that I would be slicing diagnonally. Anything to get rid of them. I did a wonky modified log cabin, inspired by Jacquie, one of my quilting heroes. I can't compare with her fabulous work and you ought to go take a look at it. Jacquie does really simple quilting and I thought I would give some straight line quilting a try. Wow - that didn't take any time at all on the longarm!
Finally, because I had to use 90% of the nasty fabric and I had a few pieces left over, I pieced the backing, which is something I'd been wanting to try for a long time.
The results came in, today, and I tied for second place! There were so many creative projects and I am very impressed with the entries.
Here is a link to the HGTV message board that shows the winning entries. Oh wait, if you aren't signed in, you can't see the pictures.
But here is a link to a flickr photo album that has mutliple pictures of all the entries.
