"Make It Right Challenge" Swirly Twirly Milky Way!


"Swirly Twirly Milky Way"

As my Studio, She-Cave or Zen Den
(what shall I call it?)
is coming into focus--
The "Make It Right Challenge"
came at just the right time.


 has a newsletter.
 Where quilters submit quilty related blog posts, photos, tutorials and information.


I liked the clean, fresh modern look of the block
 and knew this block had a future with me
Click here to see a traditional Dresden Plate.


I enlarged Vicki's dresden since I wanted the
dresden to be large. The solids worked well to make the dresden stand out. And truth be told,
I had know idea that we could use
 Angela's Line of fabrics which

has pattern to them.

As this block and ideas were spinning around
in my head--up pops
 Angela Walters from Quilting Is My Therapy
with the Make-It-Right-Challenge.

The Black Hole of the Swirly Twirly Milky Way 
It became a No-Brainer for me to enter!
1). Wanted to decorate a wall.
2). Liked Angela's fabrics.
3). Practice quilting.
4).Timed contest to have finished (Yeah!).
5). Plus enter a Challenge.
Used 2 layers of Quilters Dream Batting.
Colored changed the thread to match each color. 
And the Milky Way
was then created in my Universe!
And heres the back!
Fabric was not wasted on this quilt!

Binding was pieced from
small leftover scraps.

 Where The
Swirly Twirly Milky Way
I wanted to hide a queen size bed!
So my husband ran a ceiling track.
Had sewn a quilt, and added some grommets


Slide the quilt in front of the book case.
Pillows are stored on top of the bed.
(I have plans to utilize the under side
of the bed in the near future.)

So this is what the room looks like for
short stay visitors.


 But when my son or guests can stay longer,
down comes the quilt (quilt can be used on bed).
 And the guests can store their personal items
 in the bookcases.

Art Gallery Fabrics manufactures the fabric.
And I purchased it at Contemporary Cloth.
I did not use the plum, purple or
pink in the challenge.

But there is another quilt
started on the design wall.

The quilting added the texture. 
 And the pillows were needed
 To finish it off!
