I have been getting together with a couple of very talented quilter friends and we decided we were going to challenge each other once a month with a Journal challenge. We are all making 8 x 10 journal squares. Our first challenge was based on color. I chose Red, Turquoise and Purple... This is what I came up with. I have always wanted to do something that looked like a highway interchange from the air, this is my interpretation in my chosen colors...
Now our second challenge was to use some organza we painted. I did various shades from White to Black... I also did other colors but I have only incorporated the shades of gray with my purple pieces. We had fun painting organza.

I am so anxious to get together again and share our work and set up our next challenge. It is wonderful to get together with women who share my desire to explore! I feel so blessed to have met these women and have a couple of new quilty friends.

The week is going well. I attended a new yoga class and found out it is an incredible way to start the day.


  1. wow beautiful! I especially love the highway from above. Gorgeous colours. How lucky you are to have found some kindred quilting spirits!

  2. it's an amazing feeling to be inspired by like minded people, enjoy!

  3. That is really neat. I need to learn more about quilting. I love to sew.

  4. Hi Connie, I'm trying to visit a new blog every day before the end of the year, and today you're my new visit :) Came over from Pioneer Woman. I admire your quilting skills. I don't even own a sewing machine! My oldest daughter has recently learned to knit and would like to learn to quilt as well. Blessings to you!

  5. Beautiful pieces-- as always:)--how fun to have quilty friends to inspire and challenge you.
