A Presidential Challenge
I am old enough to remember JFK’s stirring speech asking what ‘I’ could do for my country. It has been repeated and maybe should be a daily thing.
However, I responded to the Calcasies Cut-ups Quilt Guild presidential challenge with this quilt.
There were several steps along the way. Each step offered a selection of two or more options and of course the fabric choices were mine.
It began with the cetner and each step involved another round. I did not quite understand the next to the last round—those bowties are supposed to be just cornerstones—but after I had made enough for over half of the round, I continued.
By the time I finished all those bow-ties I was weary of the whole project and opted for a plain final border.
It is now quilted and will be next up for binding.
