JSS Party Part 2 – Same Fabric Challenge

Christmas again.  We’re going to relive it over and over.  And there are quilts to be seen!  I’m back on a quilting roll.  Julie will be happy.

Remember our Same Fabric Challenge?  It’s a part of our Christmas party each year.  You’ve seen the fabric all year long on the edges of this blog.  One of these days I might get around to making something out of mine.  It was a busy year for me.  Excuses, excuses.

Anyway – On with the Show!


Kay started things off with this lovely fabric bowl she made.  Creativity is the name of the game with this group.

I thought you needed a closer look.  I didn’t want you to think I’d forgotten about close-ups or something.

Suz showed hers next.  She let the fabric speak to her.  And it said loud and clear…. Scooby-Doo!

See?  The colors just went with this fabulous Scooby.  Perfectly.

And here’s the whole quilt.  It is spectacular!

Lynn was next.   What a wonderful quilt!

And then came Pam’s creation.  Nice, Pam!

It’s so fun to see how different all these quilts are.  Using the same fabric.  That’s Madelyn hiding behind this little gem.  But if memory serves me correctly, she didn’t make this quilt.  I think it was Judy R.  Someone please correct me if I’m wrong.

Davene couldn’t bring herself to cut up the fabulous fabric.  So she just added gorgeous borders to a large piece in the center.  Great job, Davene!

How cute is this?  Sue OK made this darling apron with her fabric!

This is really out-of-the-box for Judy.  And very, very creative.

Cindy made this wonderful quilt.  Aren’t you impressed with the creativity of this group?

Peggy fooled us all.  She hid the fabric in this fabulous rooster.  It even hung in our quilt show in September!  And she got a fabulous third place ribbon too.

Can you find the challenge fabric?  She hid it well.  But it’s there!

Wonder what our 2012 fabric will look like?  Stay tuned…..

    Thanks for all the pics! What surprises, especially from Judy Linn and Peggy! I continue to be so inspired by all the creativity AND talent that continues to flow from this group!! It’s so delightful to wake up to your colorful, fun blogs.

    How awesome, I love all the cool ways the fabric was used. I confess I can not find the challenge fabric in the chicken. Did she turn it wrong side out? I give up, someone please tell me…….. The apron is adorable. I think Suz wins my vote for letting the fabric speak to her. Scooby Doo is the perfect companion for this fabric, they belong together!
    I love them all. Thank you for such a wonderful blog showcasing all the talent and dedication to creativity. You girls are wonderful!

    Barb, I am so happy to see your quilting blogs again!!! Thank you………….Cyndie, a few of the feathers are snips of the orange in the challenge fabric and I did use the right side. Thank goodness there are no rules for this challenge other than to use a piece of the fabric. And I agree with you that Suz wins for ‘letting the fabric speak to you’, Scooby Doo is a perfect fit! This really is a great group and we are all so lucky to be a part of it. Quilting friends are the best!

    Once again, dear ladies, I am SO IMPRESSED with everyone’s beautiful creations. The bowl, the apron, the beautiful rooster and that long table runner, which could also adorn a place on a wall, PLUS the out of this world quilts are just beyond belief. I don’t quilt, but sure admire the beauty you create. Allow me a moment…this must be what it is like for God as He creates. He takes some “ordinary” material, and makes some very beautiful people. Some of them have a specific purpose, and some are just cute. Some are both. Whatever the case, He surely stands back and admires His handywork. That’s what I do with your creations. I stand back and admire your handywork. Awesome!!
