My internet quilt guild has a challenge each year at our annual retreat. Last summer the challenge was to make a quilt top using the colors from a candy bar wrapper.

My friend Sandy chose a Pay Day wrapper and asked me to quilt it for her. I actually gave it back to her unquilted because I had no idea at all how to quilt it. It was intimidating! You can see more about it over on her blog.

Finally I decided to import a photo into my computer and doodle on it to get some ideas flowing. Since I knew she wanted us to enter it in some competitions, everything is freehand.

It was accepted in the Hampton VA show next weekend and we are hoping to hear from Paducah soon. Cross your fingers for us!

I used a layer of Hobbs wool and Hobbs 80/20 with Bottom Line thread, Sew Fine and a little Glide. I'm pleased with the result and you may recognize the Berries and Banana's filler in one section which I did a video tutorial for
