Shack Happy

Quilt # 52
Shack Happy

This was our guild's Millenium Challenge called The Neutralizer.

The Rules:
Neutralizer Challenge: This challenge will require participants to purchase enough neutral fabric to cut 6" x 6" square for each participant.  One “colour” may be added as well as one neutral. The back and binding do not count, but the borders do.


I made a liberated quilt a la Gwen Martson, free cut (no rulers). I added a white on off-white as my extra neutral which was pieced with the other whites for the sky and green was my chosen colour.

back and label

I pieced my label and the left-over bits into the back of the quilt.
