poppyprint Reposting from my sweet friend @sindyzelezen who made this gorgeous table runner from #makeittakeit with her MQG challenge fabric!! ....... #mqgfabricchallenge done! Covered all the bases.
1). Make something fantastic that is quilted. Made the fantastic Stepping Stone Table Runner from @poppyprint 's Make It Take It (although I turned it into a wall hanging)
2). Make something you've never done before. Never done appliqué circles before.
3). Challenge yourself to learn something new. Used @lolablueocean 's excellent instructions (also in Make It Take It) to do some ghost quilting and I love how it turned out!
4). Use only Riley Blake Cottage Garden and co-ordinating fabrics. I added a few prints and the solid.

poppyprint Some lovely slippers made in #inuvik beautifully beaded and trimmed with beaver pelt. The red rose is an example of the more traditional opaque beads (no bugles or sparkles) and it is one of Arlene's wedding slippers. 2d

poppyprint Saturday night in #inuvik and we're playing BINGO. It's a massive $20,000 jackpot for the #muskratjamboree You get to stay cozy at home - the caller is on TV! #poppyprintgoesarctic 3d
  •   cheryl_arkison I know where you are! Say hi to Shona. 3d
  •   lethargiclass I love playing bingo up north :) 3d
  •   lethargiclass @amyscraftyshenanigans you call in to the station and then they verify it... Some places it is done on radio stations and the person has to get there with their card to verify and everyone waits 3d
  •   poppyprint @lethargiclass @amyscraftyshenanigans here you phone in your win and they verify it with a code printed on your card. It was a first for me playing for a "fly swatter and fly" which is a diagonal line with a 4-square on one end and single square in the opposite corner. Waaaaaay too complicated after two glasses of wine! 3d
  •   poppyprint @superknitter @rstogether yes, I brought this wine from BC as a gift. 3d
  •   kirsty_bonjour Those dot-making bingo marking pens kept my kids busy for hours when they were little. Great no mess alternative to painting. 3d
  •   poppyprint @kirsty_bonjour the experts call them 'daubers'! 2d
  •   kirsty_bonjour Well, there you go. You learn something new every day. 2d
