Latest UT 12 x 12 Challenge – The Beatles


The latest Uncommon Threads challenge was chosen by Cathy Jeffery which had to be about the Beatles and it had to have some white in it. Being an old fart and not in love with the Beatles, this was a tough one for me as it seemed to be for the other members of my generation. Three of us considered the Yellow Submarine but trashed that idea and did something else. I can’t remember what inspired me but I did the following of John Lennon. I’ve always wanted to try this technique in paper but never got around to it so with the aid of tracing paper and tweezers I’ve done it in fabric. The quilting doesn’t really show, but it’s there; white on white.

And here’s a composite of the groups’ 12 x 12s. They’ll be posted on the UT blog site next week. Our next challenge will have to do with the 4th of July and be red, white and blue. I’m stumped.
