Piecing Guess Challenge
1) Must have a strong contrast that "reads" as black & white. (Dark blue/green & white-on-white)
2) Must be fabrics that I like enough that I don't lose interest before the 1089 pieces are combined. (Batiks collected over the past 2 years with the criteria that it goes with my stash.
3) Have nearly 5 yards in mixed colors that go together and read as a single color. (Don't EVEN ask.)
4) Fabrics are not my most favorite fabrics in the universe so if it's an utter failure I would have cry myself to sleep for months. (The muddy step-batiks that I liked enough to buy, but went.."hmmm" when they started to hang out with the others in the stash.)
Since this is Thanksgiving week and I'm taking some time off, my goal is to get this pieced by Saturday and find a friend with a specific type of technology to see if "it works" (the silly visual trick I'm going for). There are probably dozens of people who have already thought of this and posted about it, but I'm feeling delightfully clever. So clever, in fact, that I will award a prize...a gift certificate to my local quilt shop who ships internationally, to a contestant who guesses what it is that I am going to make. One entry per guess, with extra credit (guesses) for being right, or ridiculously wrong - but making me snort coffee out my nose when I read your entry. Contest ends whenever I get this thing done (could be tomorrow...could be next month).
What is it?
