Un-tail-it challenge

Recently I entered a quilting challenge sponsored by the Fabric Art Shoppe in Lake City, Florida.

This was my first piece that I ever entered in a contest.

The rules were to use the fabric that was given to you in at least 25 % of the project, must have batting and some type of quilting. It could not be larger than 18" x 24".

This was the fabric called cat tails that was to be used. I looked at this fabric and I could see alligator eyes, frog eyes but could not figure out how to execute such a grand design.

  I opted for the female figure that has the title Retail Theoay

Look I won a prize for the Most Original.  I was shocked.  My sister won also for Best Use of Color.

What a fun project.  I just love the corn.  That is my favorite.  If you could see it in person you would see that the fabric had been textured to resemble corn kernels.

I love your piece but the corn was my fave. I think she might enter it in another competition in Jacksonville. I wish her luck!
