Happy Memorial Day! We are pleased to introduce you to another Quilt Design Star™ 2012 finalist.
Barb Wilke is not only a quilter, but also a high school art teacher in York, Pennsylvania, and the owner of Wilke Fibre Arts.
Barb writes, describing her initial thoughts about her Challenge 1 venture: “It is very exciting to be involved in Challenge #1. I love a challenge and if there is a deadline to meet the pressure of that is more enticing. Storm at Sea is a block that I very much like because of the secondary pattern that it creates in mass, but not being a traditional quilter I have not made the block before. I began the designing process with the name of the block, then did a few internet searches on related topics. It should be a great deal of fun to draft what I now envision.”
“This is the first pull of fabric for Challenge #1. As you can see there are many choices from my stash. My harshest critic is inspecting.” Good luck, Barb!
