When we called for a Challenger for October we did not know we had pulled into the net a blogger, who is, in the words of Will Ferrell in Anchorman, "kind of a big deal." So she made a quilt for this October challenge using the collection "My Sunflower Garden" by Jane Shasky. And the quilt is also kind of a big deal.
Of course it is beautiful in its making... and also in its final glory. See the pictures below.

Here are her notes:
QuiltShopGal is a blog that focuses on researching and sharing insights about new products, designers, events, etc.
QuiltShopGal used EQ8 software to design a quilt using the challenge fabric, incorporating 60 degree diamonds that also incorporated panel blocks from this fabric collection. The patches for this quilt were cut with new Slit N Sew templates, to be released at Quilt Market (booth #2320) & Quilt Festival (booth #1046) in November by Quilters Paradise.
They made it easy to assemble the three different blocks used to create this simple quilt design, and ultimately the entire quilt, while retaining a scrappy looking quilt.
The finished quilt measures 60” x 72” and will be donated to the Carolina Hurricane Project coordinated by Carole of From My CarolinaHome.
QuiltShopGal loves the cheerful “My Sunflower Garden” fabric collection and hopes this quilt will give a much needed quilty hug of comfort to a victim of the recent hurricane.
