The Endeavourers #15, A quilt inspired by a newspaper headline - "B****y Covid"
This is my quilt for the latest quarterly challenge from The Endeavourers. Our challenge was to make a quilt inspired by a newspaper headline.
My quilt doesn't need much explanation - it represents the majority of headlines at the moment, and pretty much sums up my feelings!
My 'headline' is painted with fabric paint and I quilted in black round the letters, which are based on a font called Impact. There is a double layer of batting under the white 'paper' which is stipple quilted. The background newsprint is quilted in random geometric shapes inspired by the print. I liked the way that the asterisks look vaguely like the Covid virus under the microscope!
I'm sure I'm not alone in feeling uninspired to be creative recently, and it was very good to have this challenge! As usual I'm looking forward to seeing what has inspired the other members of the Endeavourers. You can check them out on the group blog where you can also find links to each individual member.
