8 is Great! #pqseason8

It’s Season 8 for Project QUILTING! Challenge 1 was 8 is Great, make any kind of quilt that features an aspect of number 8.

Here is the link to the Challenge. My entry is a modern quilt block that measures about 18.5″ square. I made it as a wall hanging or a table topper.

My inspiration came from Biblical Numerology (what?!) where number 8 means Resurrection or New Beginning. Number 7 means Completion or Perfection, so it follows that the next number is a new beginning.

I was happy to be able to incorporate some inspirational text fabric in this project that ties in with a New Beginning. There is a hanging sleeve on the back that isn’t in the way if the quilt is used as a table topper.

This week all 142 quilts made for Season 8, Challenge 1 are open for public voting, here. Everyone can vote for their 10 favorite quilts…in case you are wondering…mine is #76 (“remember 76 trombones in the big parade”).

I have Project Quilting albums on Flickr from the past few years if you like browsing this kind of thing. And the quilt is now in my Etsy shop, IsabellasWhimsy.

On Friday I want to share another Project QUILTING project that has worked out very nicely for me.

Thank you for taking time to visit the blog.

~ Blessings,

Isabella
