QM’s Annual Staff Challenge
We recently completed our annual staff challenge. Six of us each used the same block to create a quilt but we all used different fabrics.
The block for this challenge came from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 2. It’s called Infinity and it was designed by Vickie Eapen who blogs at Spun Sugar Quilts.
This was a perfect challenge block. By putting light, medium or dark values in different places and by rotating blocks, we caused the design to take on multiple personalities. It was easy to do using EQ7—the possibilities were quite literally endless!
We all used the setting shown above.
Graphic Designer Denise Starck created this version. Fabric: Sienna by Kensington Studio for Quilting Treasures; quiltingtreasures.com.
This version is by Associate Editor Eileen Fowler. Fabric: Lark by Amy Butler for Rowan Fabrics; westminsterfabrics.com.
This is the quilt I made. Fabric: Reunion by Sweetwater for Moda Fabrics; unitednotions.com.
Editor-in-Chief June Dudley made the version above. Fabric: St. Remy de Provence by Robyn Pandolph for RJR Fabrics; rjrfabrics.com.
This version is by Creative Editor Carolyn Beam. Fabric: Mums the Word Metallic-Sunkissed from Northcott Studio; northcott.net.
Associate Editor Paula Stoddard made this version. Fabric: Stitch by Betz White for Robert Kaufman; robertkaufman.com.
