On this blog the members of Sky-is-the-Limit group show the results of the challenge quilts they make. We started with each quarter a new theme, but have changed this to a monthly theme. Knowing that life can interfere with good intentions it is not compulsary to make a quilt each month, but at least 4 quilts per year should be doable. Every quilt measures 12"x12".

Wonder of Life ........ theme - Cosmos
I have some black fabric that I bought years ago. It has silver stars on it. I spattered and painted white acrylic paint and also fabric paint with a bit of silver in it to represent the theme. I made a stencil and screen printed the child figure. I quilted with metallic thread which I hate using in an intermittent circle pattern, one thread was silver with touches of other colours and then used sparingly a gold metallic that had strong touches of red and blue and used it also to outline the figure.
