Quilt Guild Challenge 2009

At the last Guild meeting they had their quilt challenge kit for 2009 with 3 fat quarters of Mark Lapinski fabric from Northcott. The theme for the challenge is "Like Day & Night". The quilt must be your own design, so you can't use an existing commercial pattern. The finished perimeter of the quilt must be between 60 - 140 inches and it is due April 21st and the 3 fabrics must be recognizable when the quilt is finished.

The kit was $10 and I figured this might be as good a time as ever to to try my hand at entering something into a competition. I'm not sure yet what my design is going to be but I've got some ideas mulling in my brain. Once something comes together I will post my design. Below are the three fabrics that were in the kit. the 2 black ones are from Mark's Califon collection currently available in shops and the blue one is from the Krakow collection to be released in January.
