Ugly Batik Challenge

Grace had yards of this fabric and thought it was ugly.
She gave each member of the Not Your Grandmother's Bee
a fat quarter and challenged us to make something. 
Here are her rules.
"Use at least an identifiable piece of this fabric in your challenge piece!
Completed pieces are due at our April bee, and
there's a slight chance that prizes might be awarded"

 Grace provided prizes and asked Mary from
Minding My P's and Q's Quilt Shop to judge the entries and award the prizes.

Nelda Johnson, the Super Creative award

Grace Johnson, the Outside the Box award

Tonya Littmann, the Best Use of Fabric award
Linda Creagh, the Most Clever award
Tonya Littmann, the Make Me Smile award

Tammy Becker, The Precise Piecing award

Debbie Coates, the Wow award

 Marie Mitchell, the Very Impressive Piece award

Charlotte Rutland, the Super Cute award

Teresa Shirling, the Most Fun award

 Kathleen Francis, the What Were You Thinking award.

Donna Mullen Irving couldn't come to the meeting so she sent me a photo.

Nice job everyone. Thank you Grace for making it happen!

Dallas Quilt Show Results

I just realized I didn't post the results of my entries to the Dallas Quilt Show.
I'm thrilled to have won two blue ribbons!

 One for my Challenge Block...

And one for "Obsession". My entry in the Show Chair's Theme, Funny Quilts.

The Show Chair's Theme for 2016 is "Words & Letterforms." 
I already have a plan.
