2011 Challenge Quilt

Are you up for the challenge? 
*  Due at the November meeting.
*  Must be a completed (quilted and bound) 25" square quilt including a quilt label.
*  You can only use a total of 2 fabrics - the fat quarter given and an additional fabric of your  choosing.
*  You can have it quilted by another quilter if you'd like.  You must give credit on the quilt label for the quilter.
*  You are welcome to embellish the piece.  You can use ribbons, beads, buttons, decorative threads, etc.  Ribbons may not be used as a third fabric though.
*  You can make your piece using any method of quilting you like.  Applique, piecing, foundation piecing, fussy cutting, etc.
*  We will have a vote at the October meeting for the guild favorite.  Places and prizes are yet to be determined - but they will be good ones!!
 
Here is an example of a quilt that followed these rules:
