Color Challenge

What a great day at guild. We had almost 30 people show off their color challenges. Some of them picked crayons that were really a challenge to put together in a quilt but all projects were great. Of course, I forgot my camera but hopefully I can get some pictures to show later. Several others had cameras.

We kicked off the next challenge. The title is Blocks, Stripes and Embellishments, Oh My!

Each person who signed up rolled a die (1 dice) and got a number 1-6. After everyone signed up and rolled, we drew blocks for each number. I have the numbers/blocks written down but here in the blocks, not in number order.

Log Cabin
Sawtooth Star
Log Cabin
Bears Paw
Churn Dash

For the challenge, each quilter must use the block matching their number in their quilt. Does not have to be a quilt made up of rows of blocks but must have at least one of their block in the quilt. There is a minimum size of 20 inches for the quilt and it must be flat - in other words, not a purse or item of clothing. You must use a striped fabric somewhere in the quilt and you must have at least one embellishment added to it. Should be another fun challenge.
These are due at our October meeting.

I drew Sawtooth Star as my block. Haven't decided on a project yet - will have to think about it for a while. I am looking forward to playing with embellishments. Maybe I will finally use some of the crystals I bought a couple of years ago.


  1. Sounds like a fun challenge. I'll be watching to see what you make.

  2. Oh, what a fun challenge -- crystals are always a fun choice!

  3. Another fun challenge! Can't wait to see what you make!

  4. Sawtooth stars is one of my favorites...can't wait to see what you create!


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
