My Guild recently had a challenge called 'From the Page' where you received a page from a magazine.
You then created a quilt that represented that page, using the page design, layout, colours, topics, or any other element on the page. The creation could be 3D, as long as it fitted within a 50cm cube.
Here is my page from the magazine:
Using the flower image on the left I created a double-sided printing block and printed various prints until I got the colours I liked.
The final result (36cm by 48cm):
For the larger flowers I used a freezer paper stencil, that was reused for the stitching outlines.
The flowers are outlined using Madeira Lana. A great thread that is 50% wool and 50% acrylic, this thread can be used on the sewing machine, just needs a larger needle such as a jeans needle.
Awhile ago I bought a selection of these threads from the Linda and Laura Kemshall's online store.
The judging was last week, unfortunately I didn't win anything. The winning and merit entries almost/exactly represented their page/s.
