Light Through Friendship - Friendship Star - A Focus Through the Prism Project QUILTING Challenge, June

It's taken me all month to stitch up this little 20" quilt for a challenge from
for a

You see, I'm a very slow stitcher...

The Challenge:  Friendship Star

  • Each final project should read predominantly as one color in the spectrum: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, or violet. You may not use the same color as you used in a previous challenge.
  • A ROYGBIV hand-dyed color bundle of fabric must be purchased from Cherrywood Fabrics.
  • You must use ONE fabric from the ROYGBIV challenge bundle in each quilt which should correspond with the color you want your quilt to ‘read’.
  • Any other fabrics from your stash may be added.
  • You must use the month's block as your inspiration.
  • Quilts must finish 20” square.
  • Share the story behind your quilt and how the block ‘Friendship Star’ was the inspiration.
  • Your quilt must have a name.
  • Pictures of your FINISHED 20” square quilts must be LINKED UP by 11:55pm CST on Tuesday, June 30th

When the challenge was announce it made me think of all the wonderful friendships I have made through quilting and blogging.  That was my inspiration along with the theme I had last month with the monkey wrench.  I wanted to incorporate a tool and shining a flashlight felt right.
I hand embroidered the world map while trying to make it look like the star was shining on it.  

Here is a picture of my May and June challenges.

"Light Up the World with Friendship"

A Focus Through the Prism Project QUILTING Challenge, June
Made by Carla in Dodge City, Kansas
Size: 20"x20"
Prism color:  Yellow from the ROYGBIV fabric bundle by Cherrywood Fabrics
Piecing and reverse applique
Quilting- stippling by me on my domestic machine

I had to wash this one before I could photograph it.  I am a mess and had a few spots on it before it was all embroidered.  I also have carried it with me everywhere I went this month so it's no wonder it had a little mess on it and yellow doesn't hide

I have one day of rest before the next challenge is posted.  
I have NO plans to embroider the next one!!!
