Today's inspiration comes from Heidi Kapszukiewicz. Here's Heidi's description of her challenge quilt:
This is a guild challenge where we used our birthstone color for a quilted piece. I chose Vicki's blue fabric to be the basis for my aquamarine birthstone. I saw many flower and leaf images in the fabrics and I wanted to try thread stitching. So I used various variegated threads to bring out the shapes. I also wanted to have a natural border of leaves at the bottom. These were added later. This is all Vicki's fabric except the tummy of my tree swallow who decided to visit us with its mate. I added star shaped beads to complete the sky. I won "members' choice" at my guild and this was displayed at our quilt show with other entries.
For sharing, Heidi received a 20% coupon for the shop that's good for 3 months! If you have made anything with my hand dyed fabric I hope you will consider sharing it in the Customer Gallery. The only rule is that projects have to be complete. It doesn't have to be made totally from hand dyed fabric, just include a recognizable amount.
