Our local guild, Uncommon Threads retreat was this week-end so the next few posts will be about the retreat. First of all, the Challenge block. If you saw my post about the challenge fabric, we were to make a 12″ block using this fabric.
I asked for suggestions/ideas and you all suggested lava lamp, butterflies, 70s, and then someone said they saw hair. So I decided to try a Diva (the retreat theme) and use this challenge fabric for her hair. Here was the final block.
Button earrings, challenge block hair, tape measure hair band holding a rotary cutter and lots of embellishment crystals. (diva like) I was really pleased with the results. When I arrived at the retreat and walked in and saw the other blocks I laughed out loud.Check this out.
Three people saw hair in the challenge fabric. This one was especially cute.
I voted for this one. Really creative.
Here’s some other cute ones.
More about the retreat later. Especially the class with phenomenal instructor Sharon Schamber. Here’s a preview.
