I've decided to set the original home of the knobbly shape to be in the other orientation (in rainbow shades of sunset) and put this one back upright.

If anyone seriously did want to make a Spoonflower sized quilt out of this, as a bare minimum they're going to want it in the other orientation (as just uploaded at time of posting this comment).
I know that quilters <i>can</i> go around curves when they reach that latter stage of the process. However, what potentially disqualifies this design more is that it doesn't look remotely pieced together from different fabrics (as implied in the contest remit). Instead it's more like crochet in appearance. No sane person would cut lobed fabric to join together like that. Even appliqueing it on you'd lose the pointy bits too much. Though you might construct it in layers, stepping back each time, with only the convex part being lobed onto the layer below to conceal its flat edge.
<br><br>As I said, we'll see where I get to come the deadline.
And if someone wants to just get it done quickly, without fussing with curves, there's the availability of straight lines in the spaces between the curves ;-)
Oh! When I saw this lovely design earlier today, I thought it WAS your entry! And I thought that once again, you were out on the creative edge, leading the way. None of the quilters I know would be the slightest bit put-off by the round shapes in this design, and, for a practice quilt, it would be excellent, since most practice quilts are assorted straight lines, and much quilting today (on the leading edge) is curves. Go for it!
Thanks. I did consider it but I didn't think it would qualify - not really being a sensible thing to quilt around. This design was already going through the system long before there was a relevant contest announcment. I had some other ideas for the chevron zigzag remit but if I don't get any time to put any of them together at a suitable scale I might fall back on this as an entry anyway.
Looks really great Sef, love It so much!
Especially the contrast of sunny soft dots in this chevron pattern. It would look great with some textures for the cheater quilt contest next week,too:)
