paint chip challenge
2013 Quilt & Needle
“Paint Chip” Challenge!!!
Hostess: Cindy Co-Hostess: Jess
Each quilter who accepts this mission will be sent a Paint Chip card of the Hostess’ choice (that would be moi, Cindy!). There will be 4 or 5 colors on each card – you can use fabrics in any of the colors on that card – you can add fabrics of your own choosing that coordinate with your card colors – HOWEVER, your card colors MUST BE the focus of your quilt. Example: let’s assume that you like scrappy quilts and that you receive a “purple” paint chip card. You can use as wide a variety of fabrics to achieve the scrappiness you like in a quilt but when I look at your quilt, I must see the “purples” from your paint chip card, not mere glimpses of your card purples. Other than the color requirements, there are no other restrictions – let your imaginations soar as to your design, pattern, type of project, etc.
Pictures of finishedprojects will need to be submitted by Midnight Central time, Friday, June 28th, 2013. To qualify as a “finished project”, anything lap-size quilt and larger only needs to have the top finished, it does not have to be quilted and bound – anything smaller than a lap-quilt (i.e. wall hanging, quilted bag/purse, etc.) should be completely finished. Photos may be submitted one of three ways: (1) Posting the photo on the Forum’s Challenge thread. (2) Posting the photo on theQuilt and Needle’s Challenge Event wall. (3) Emailing the photo to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. This deadline will give everyone well over FIVE months to work on their projects, so PLEASE do not ask for extensions of the deadline – it is not fair to those quilters who have finished their chosen projects by the deadline and any extension requests will NOT be considered.
