Hoffman Challenge "Kelp Bed"
This is my Hoffman Challenge quilt that I submitted in 2006. It did not get anything but it toured the galaxy for a year. It is paper pieced with 63 5 inch blocks. You don't get any extra points for the PIA factor. I only had to redo 2 blocks because I used the wrong color towards the center. I tried so hard to figure out a way to fix them but I couldn't. So those were the 2 blocks I practiced quilting on. The fish and the kelp are quilted. Everytime I attempted to quilt the background my thread would break so it didn't get quilted. There were way too many seams!
I hope to enter again when I like the challenge fabric.
