Last November at Crazy Quilting Supplies a challenge was announced:
Message in a bottle.
I couldn't resist and signed up.
All information about this challenge can be found here.
This project will also be submitted to CQJP 2013.
I ordered the challenge packet: 14 fancy fabrics,
lace, ribbons, trim, beads, charms, pearl coton 8, interfacing, an unusual fabric and....an (empty) bottle charm (in the red oval).
Everything in the packet must be visible on the challenge piece.
This is the rough plan: sky, sea, mountains, beach.
The bottle (without a message) of course is washed ashore among driftwood.
The canvas measures 27 x 35 cm, that is 945 square cm. This means the size of four blocks as the minimum size of a CQJP block is 225 square cm.
I will work this piece as one large block which can count for four months.
